Namuang Waterfall

Namuang Waterfall is Koh Samui’s best hidden secret. This amazing oasis is located just 10 km south from Nathon and boasts two beautiful waterfalls; the first is 18 meters high and the second is approximately 80 meters high.

Namuang is easily accessed by vehicle, but the higher waterfall can only be accessed by taking a 30 minute walk to the falls.

Both of these waterfalls boast some of the most scenic views on the island. While visiting Namuang’s waterfalls, you should explore the verdant forest and nearby hiking trails.

The waterfalls are located towards the southern coast of Samui’s central peak; so plan a day trip as you will find a number of things to see and do. Explore the island’s stunning landscapes, hiking pathways and acres of lush foliage. The Namuang waterfalls are a must visit location for those holidaying on Koh Samui.

Many people visit the waterfalls as they are easily accessed by vehicles. Also, the site has a number of souvenir shops and restaurants nearby.

The Namuang Waterfall 2 is the highest waterfall in Samui. If you are an enthusiastic hiker, you will enjoy the 30-minute walk to reach the summit.

    • Hi Christine,

      Most tours to Ang Thong Marine Park leave from Nathon Pier or from BoPhut, both of which are on the north/north-east of the island. Most tour operators will pick you up from your hotel and return you after your day out, so you don’t have to worry about transfers.

      Go Karting is also on the northern shores of the island, near BoPhut. The Namuang Waterfall is towards the south/centre of the island, so I wouldn’t recommend staying there, but rather take a day trip out to visit. The whole circuit of the island only takes around 1hr to complete in a taxi, so no location will take very long to reach from your chosen hotel.

      As for hotel suggestions, here are a number of beautiful 5-star hotels and villas on the northern edge of the island:
      1. Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort
      2. Hansar Samui Resort & Spa
      3. Villa Maeve
      4. Villa Manta

      Enjoy your trip to the beautiful island of Koh Samui!
