Located near the main ferry terminal of the island, Lipa Noi is a convenient choice for travelers traveling from the mainland to Samui. The beach has smooth white sand, no rocks or coral under water so this is one of the safest places for children on the island. The water is quite shallow, about 100m deep. About accommodation, you can find scattered bungalows, or more luxurious resorts, including the world-famous Nikki Beach. In additional, there are some cool bars on the beach, but there are not many fun activities, so there are not many tourist attractions, especially when you are in a large group together.

Taling Ngam

Koh-Samui-Taling-Ngam

The pristine beaches nestled in the jungle and the stunning landscape of Ang Thong Marine National Park blends together making Taling Ngam become one of the island’s most photographed sites. Looking to the West, this place also gives you the opportunity to admire the spectacular sunset. There are a variety of accommodation choices from the budget guesthouses to the luxurious resorts, all just 20 to 30 minutes drive from Nathon — the nearest town and an hour’s drive from Chaweng town. Saying so to assert that if you are on a leisurely holiday, lazy and in a tropical vacation, Tailing Ngam is the choice very hard to beat in Samui.
