Here are some of the popular beaches in Koh Samui:
Chaweng Beach: Chaweng is the biggest and the most exciting and developed town on the island. The sandy beach found here offers all kinds of fun activities including banana boat riding and parasailing. It is extremely popular with the visitors a fact that is obvious from the number of dive shops, souvenir shops, internet cafés and tour companies that have set shop here. To top if all, Chaweng offers the biggest selection of Koh Samui villas on the beach, spas, restaurants, bars and nightlife entertainments in Samui.
Lamai Beach: Till some time ago, Lamai was the favourite destination of the backpackers. The beautiful beach here offers a cosy, and easy-going ambience. As the second-largest beach on the island, it offers its share of Koh Samui villas on the beach, fine restaurants and shopping options. However, it is relatively quieter than Chaweng. A stay on the beach also puts you in close proximity to some of the island's main attractions including Wat Khunaram and the Grandma and Grandpa rocks.
Bophut Beach: Located on the northern coast of Samui, Bophut is actually made up of two places: Bophut Beach, which stretches several kilometres between Big Buddha and Maenam beaches and the well-preserved Fisherman's Village situated in the middle section of the beach. The picturesque Fisherman's village features old wooden Chinese shop-houses and fishing boats coming and going day after day. Bophut offers an insight into the past but also promises all modern comfort, a fact which is well reflected in the luxury Koh Samui villas found on the beach here. These villas are fitted with all modern amenities and even with the beach right at their doorstep, these rentals have their own swimming pools and Jacuzzi.
Maenam Beach: Tourists who are looking for a powdery beach complete with swaying palms will find the perfect answer in Maenam Beach. Located north of Chaweng and Bophut, Maenam is considered a perfect destination for both the budget and luxury travellers. Like other beaches, Maenam also offers its share of Koh Samui villas on the beach. Featuring five star amenities, most of these luxury holiday homes are serviced by an attentive yet unobtrusive staff. You can wake to the sounds of the waves washing ashore and close the day by watching the sun set in the distant horizon from your own gazebo, and spend the day in between lounging at the beach.
