Laem Nan Beach, Resorts, Villas, Hotels & Restaurant Map, Koh Samui
What makes this area so special is that it never gets crowded, which makes it one of the preferred beaches for travellers in Koh Samui. There are many affordable hotels built on the nearby hills, as well as restaurants with sea views and bars. You can stay here and not have to pay a fortune just to enjoy a cosy room with stunning ocean views.
Hammocks can also be found on the beach, which adds to the authentic tropical holiday feel of this area. Conveniently located between the busier areas of Chaweng and Lamai, if you decide to stay in this quiet, secluded area, it’s also easy to cross over to other beaches for when you’re ready for some action. These two other beaches have more suitable beach environments for those who want to do some water sports, swimming, diving, and snorkelling.
This beach is also popular for jogging in the morning or the evenings. Although the water on the beach is too shallow for swimming and there are many rocks, which makes it difficult to walk on barefoot, perfect swimming conditions can be found within an easy distance from the shore. If you intend to explore the shallow beach area, you should wear aqua socks along to protect your feet.
