Lamai Beach Koh Samui
Lamai Beach is Samui’s Second largest resort area after Chaweng and a bit further down the coast which is similar to Chewang but on a smaller scale. It is quieter but still with plenty of accommodation, dining and shopping options to be found, and some great spas and tourist sites to explore. There are further small towns around the island for people who don’t want the hustle and bustle and just want to relax on the sand and enjoy a quiet evening under the stars.
Lamai beach is stunning white sand that’s perfect for sunbathing and a deep central stretch of water great for swimming and water sports. If you are looking for a relaxing few days on the beach, the local amenities can cater adequately to all your needs and you won’t have to move too much at all.
There are many beach sellers patrolling the beach, selling ice creams, fresh fruit, grilled sweet corn or chicken and Thai papaya salad, cold drinks, sarongs, jewellery etc. Lamai also has Thai massage available along the beach. Most of the beach masseurs offer Thai and oil massages, as well as aloe vera body wraps, henna tattoos, manicures and hair braiding.
