Maenam Beach, Mae Nam

4.1
Laid-back and private, Maenam Beach mainly draws a backpacker crowd. The beach offers excellent views of the island of Koh Pha Ngan, and its resorts are set much farther away than at other beaches, allowing for a quieter atmosphere. Stretch out on the soft golden sand, in the sun or under the canopy of palm trees, and then cool off in the calm sea. Amenities include many restaurant options along the beach, as well as massage kiosks offering Thai massages. If you fall in love with the spot, consider staying in one of the affordable bungalows dotting the shoreline. Put Maenam Beach into our Mae Nam trip itinerary app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Mae Nam.

  • Great beach on the north side of Samui. It’s a tourist area but much quieter than other parts of the islands. Lots of nice, but inexpensive hotels.  more »
  • Pros: great area with resto’s and bars but still calm, sandy and comfortable, great swimming Cons: hard to walk far because of angle and sand type, tide creates rivers to deep to cross at times  more »
