Silver Beach & Tong Takien Beach Koh Samui Thailand

Silver Beach & Tong Takien Bay, Koh Samui

09/08/2020 AsianVillaRentals 0

Known by locals as Tongtakien Bay, this small beach nestles between Lamai and Chaweng, and is a delightful spot just off the main road between those main centres. With three beach resorts there can be moderate crowds during peak season (December) but when it’s quiet – which is most of the time – it is a great place to chill and take in the stunning surroundings: crystal clear turquoise waters, powdery white sand and craggy limestone boulders surrounded by lush tropical greenery. This is everyone’s idea of a paradise beach!

Thong Krut Beach, Koh Samui, Thailand

Thong Krut Beach, Koh Samui

06/08/2020 AsianVillaRentals 0

Thong Krut Bay is found in Samui’s deep south and the fishing village here has largely been given over tour operators and restaurants due to the proximity of the highly picturesque islands of Koh Tan and Koh Mudsum a few kilometres off the beach. The area is not good for swimming as there are extensive mudflats at low tide and you’ll be fighting busy boat traffic when the tide is in, but you are very close to Bang Kao and Taling Ngam with their spectacular and peaceful powder beaches if you decide to base yourself here.

Bang Kaeo Beach, Koh Samui

Bang Kao & Laem Set Beach, Koh Samui

Heading west of Hua Thanon and detouring south off the ring road brings a whole new aspect to Samui and delivers a nature lover’s ideal holiday area . The beaches from Bang Kao, through Thong Krut and Taling Ngam Bays to Lipa Noi are all relatively undeveloped and gaining a reputation as the most desirable area on the island. New developments are appearing, but the pace of change is much slower than the busy resorts to the east and north, and these recently built properties, resorts and facilities are generally aimed at up-market travellers and jet-setters who have recently discovered the fabulous natural beauty of this tropical island.

Heading west from Bophut towards Nathon on the island’s ring road, Maenam appears to be an uninspiring potpourri of bleak concrete shophouses, scruffy bars and mostly mediocre restaurants, interspersed with the occasional top notch resort […]
