Lamai Beach

  • Hotel 2

Lamai Beach is smaller than Chaweng Beach. It is located 10 Km south of Chaweng on the east coast. It is quieter and less bustling than the buzzing Chaweng, but still with plenty of accommodation, dining and shopping options to be found, and some great spas and tourist sites to explore. And for those who enjoy playing in the waves, there is no reef protecting this bay, so the sea is a little rougher.

How to get there: Songteaws transfers between Lamai Beach and Samui Airport cost about 150 Baht per person; a private taxi charter costs around 300-400 baht. Songteaws from the ferry terminal (normally) sets you back 60 Baht.
