Chaweng Beach

Chaweng Beach is the most famous and longest beach of Koh Samui. It is located on the east side of the island. The beach is approximately 7 kilometers long, with powdery white sand and sparkling clear water. This beautiful beach is filled up with tourists swimming and sunbathing on a daily basis.

One of the highlight of the beach is it is close to exquisite coral reefs site as well as two beautiful islands. The smaller of the islands can easily be accessed by walking through the shallow waters. The bigger of the islands provide the perfect opportunity to enjoy snorkeling and kayaking.

How to get there: Chaweng is a few minutes’ ride south from Samui Airport. If you book a taxi at the airport transport desk, it will cost 400 Baht. A shared van (usually requiring 5 passengers before it will depart) will cost 120 Baht per person. Taxi drivers rarely use taxi meters here. If you decide not to use the booking desk, negotiate the fare in advance with the taxi driver. It should cost from 200 - 400 Baht.
