Beaches on Koh Samui

Koh Samui
Thailand's insider take:

Koh Samui's beaches are the postcard-perfect vision of paradise, with the vividness of the green hills and sea matched only by the brilliant white sand. While the beach and bar parties draw crowds onto Chaweng and Lamai beaches on Koh Samui's east coast, other stretches of white sand remain calm, quiet, and often deserted—at least for now. Pass traditional Thai wooden houses on stilts to access quiet Lipa Beach, just south of Nathon, where soaring palm trees, longtail boats, and local fishermen far outnumber sunbathers along a pristine bay. Head further south to similarly chill scenes at Taling Ngam beach and the white sands of Thong Krut along the southern coast. For those sticking to the northern shores, Choeng Mon beach offers a convenient, surprisingly unpopulated escape from the overdevelopment along nearby Mae Nam and Bophut beaches.
