There are are not many pubs and restaurants. You can walk along the short stretch of beach or enjoy drinks at Silver Beach Resort. Sand is softer than Chaweng or Lamai Beach. More peaceful.

Small picturesque beach with nice sand, clear water and plenty of shade. Only complaint is that there are a lot of sharp rocks in the water so have to find area without or wear shoes.

Another smaller beach area, popular for those seeking to get away from the larger beach areas. Several resorts and restaurants located here. Another beach for those looking to get away from the bar areas of Chawang or Lamai.

What an amazing beach. Breathtaking, small, great snorkeling, good restaurants and awesome beach massages while you check out the sea. This beach has it all. You could spend every day of your holiday at this beach and have a great vacation.

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.
