The water is one of the cleanest and clearest I had seen in Koh Samui. It's very private and secluded. It was good to get away from all the people and just be able to relax peacefully.

This is one of the nicest beaches we have seen in Ko Samui. The sand is very nice and fine and there are only small hotels located at the beach which results in not too many visitors.

you really need to get on a boat and visit the islands. generally there is no good off-beach snorkelling in Koh Samui. same goes for Kao Lak - you need to go to the Similan or Surin islands.
