We stayed at a resort by the beach and had direct access to the beach. The beach and the ambience was so nice we spent all day there instead of going sightseeing.

This beach is definitely less crowded than the ones in the south of Chaweng (silver beach, coral cove beach) but the water is not as nice to swim in (lots of algae). We enjoyed the quietness of this beach way more than the alternatives in...More

Maenam is very peaceful, the beach is clean and plenty of restaurants and bars all the way along, easy to spend the whole day here. It’s very quiet early in the morning and busier in the afternoons through to sunset. Some places have deck chairs...More

The sunbeds are from a private resort. I think that you can hire them there. Most things are available in Thailand, if you have money. Just ask.
