Chaweng Beach, Chaweng

Fringed with coconut trees and facing two small islands next to a natural reef, Chaweng Beach is the longest beach on the east coast of Ko Samui. The unspoiled spot with a good choice of restaurants offers plenty of dining and shopping opportunities. The northern end remains reserved for nightclubs. Due to strong currents and big waves, the shallows and the shore can be littered with seaweed and other natural debris. Adrenaline junkies can enjoy a number of water sports, from jet skiing to paraflying. To visit Chaweng Beach and other attractions in Bophut, use our Bophut online day trip planner.

  • I wouldn’t recommend this beach to anyone. It’s far from relaxing being so close to the airport and having planes fly over day and night. To give you an idea I visited for one hour and thirty...  more »

  • Difficult to access, resorts and restaurants block the entrance. And where there is none, the sand area is full of trash (actually, there is trash everywhere). Even so, if you walk you may find a nice small spot not so crowded, away from loud music with nice sand.
  • Lovely long beach. Southern end you can play in the surf and the northern end walk out in ankle deep water at low tide. Lots of restaurants all the way along for a snack or full meal. Sadly like everywhere in the world high tide brings in the plastic bottles and other plastic waste but its nice to see hotels employing staff to pick up as much as possible. Looking forward to going back.
