Directions to Mae Nam Beach

We really don't think there are many 'best kept secrets' on Samui these days, but if there were one it would be Mae Nam Beach. If you don't fancy crowds or noise then this is the beach for you. Perfect for families with children, or couples who would prefer a peaceful lazy holiday.

Mae Nam is a beautiful soft sand beach that stretches 5 kilometres from east to west. It's adorned by palm trees and lapped by a calm tranquil turquoise sea, with the nearby island of Koh Phangan your seafront view.

Everything is spread out nicely here, there's no resort after resort, bar after bar. You can easily find yourself a nice shady patch of beach without too many people around, if any. Although well spread out, you're only a short walk away from a beachside meal or drink and the quality of food is up there with the more fancy places around the island without the price tag. The pallet and wallet will be pleasantly surprised.

Mae Nam Beach can be divided into 3 parts; eastern, central and western.

The eastern end has become a bit of a casualty from the recent floods in March, 2011. The king tides and big waves washed away a good part of the sand. We were a bit concerned it may not return, but the beach is now back in all it's glory once again. There are some lovely little spots with great accommodation, beachside cuisine or chill out bars.

The central part of the beach is close to the walking street off the main ring road. Starting from 'Moon Hut' Bungalows there's great budget to mid-range accommodation, unique little bars and restaurants spread out along the beach for a about 2 kilometers heading west to the Mae Nam Resort.

The western end of the beach is home to the Lomprayah Pier, ferrying tourists to nearby islands and the mainland. This should not be off putting, it is not busy here and the ferry does not interfere with one's peace or enjoyment. It really is a lovely coved end of the beach. There's budget to mid-range beachfront accommodation here and plenty or great restaurants off the beach.

We should mention for those looking for a bit more luxury there are two 5 star resorts on this beach, and before too long you can bet there'll be more. For now though Mae Nam is a little piece of paradise, at a great price, to be enjoyed by all.

If you are here when the Moon is Full, it was one of nicest beaches to enjoy a quiet drink under the stars as the moon shimmers brightly across the Gulf waters.

Oh and finally, as usual there's plenty of water-sports!
