The town of Nathon in Koh Samui is close to the island’s main car ferry pier; making it a convenient choice for many visitors and locals who want to drive to Koh Samui from the mainland.

Nathon features a beautiful white sandy beach with crystal clear water – clean and free of rocks and corals. Therefore, many visitors often come here for swimming with their children.
