Chaweng Beach Koh Samui Thailand

Chaweng Beach Koh Samui ThailandChaweng Beach is the longest beach of Samui Island at 7km, located on its eastern coast. The fine white sands and aquamarine waters are highly enticing to tourists. There are exquisite coral reefs as well as two islands close to the beach. The smaller of the islands can be reached by crossing the shallow water on foot. The bigger and farther island is reachable only by kayaking or snorkeling.

The beach area is accessible only through hotels, as there is no approach directly from the road. The central section of the beach is always crowded with tourists and vendors selling fruits, drinks and Thai food. The road running parallel to the beach is cluttered with restaurants, bars, convenience stores and souvenir shops. Those looking for solitude can try the north and south ends of the beach.The presence of a young crowd due to the thriving nightlife has resulted in dirtying of the beach area. The initiative of local developers to clean up the area is a welcome change.
