(or as known by tourists “Silver Beach”)
located between Chaweng and Lamai beach, is
a lovely beach with dust-like white sand,
that squeaks up between your toes. There's
ample shade and very good snorkeling
offshore. The beach is quiet and beautiful
and if you walk 100m down the sands, there
is a break in the rocks where you can bathe
in the warm ocean.
This comes close to paradise on earth. The
view is immaculate and the sand is perfect.
The water is a little shallow, so fine for
paddling, but be sure to move slowly to
avoid scattered pebbles. The beach massages
are cheap and effective and easily reached
from the main sands.
Accommodation wise, there is a range of
options, though the cheaper stuff is pretty
variable Those in the mid-range to more
expensive budgets should be well-satisfied.
Most of the restaurants are attached to the
various resorts, though you're just a short
ride away from Lamai or Chaweng beach.
Thong Takian Resort is a good mid to low
budget place to stay, and offers some
comfortable bungalows. The surrounding area
offers a range of restaurants of high
quality, making the most of the stunning
views, and there’s also an outdoor climbing
wall, plus a few cool bars, so you won’t
even need to venture into Chaweng or Lamai
for entertainment if you don’t want to.
Renaissance Koh Samui Resort & Spa is a
friendly retreat secluded among lush
landscape and restful sea. Indulge in the
quiet comforts of soothing village live,
where centuries-old Thai tradition now meets
with a contemporary twist.\
