An Overview of this Beautiful Destination:
Koh Samui has the most beautiful beaches in the world and Maenam Beach is one of them. Many travelers fall in love with it due to its relaxing and sleepy atmosphere, which puts you in a sweet and delicious trance full of peace.
Back in the day, Koh Samui was less touristy, and therefore, it had a calmer and laid-back atmosphere. It still has it, but decades ago, it was a different experience.
Fortunately, you can travel back in time when you visit Maenam Beach and live it yourself. It is perfect for families, couples and travelers looking for a pleasant, beautiful and relaxing place to visit. Maenam is perfect for you.
The white sand, the warm and calm sea (perfect for swimming) and its tranquil atmosphere will make you fall in love with it. One of the least touristy beaches in the island, and therefore, a must visit.
If you want to know more about this beach – and you surely want – then just read this article written for you by Boutique Yachting. We hope you enjoy it and that you find it useful!
#1 – It Is Really Laid Back
If you are looking for a place offering exactly that kind of experience, then Maenam is the place for you. Here you will find real relaxation, as you will be away from busy parts of the island and the crowds of tourists.
However, when we say that it is laid back we really mean it, because here you won’t find many fancy things to do, because even when it comes to food and drink your options are limited (yet pretty good, more on this later).
If you want to eat a tasty meal, then you can go to Angela’s Diner and Bakery. Don’t expect luxury, but instead, be ready to eat a delicious lunch. The prices are affordable and their sausages are best, so make sure to try them!
You can also consider the Farmer Restaurant and The Boudoir Koh Samui. They are near to the beach and their menu is quite good, so we recommend them!
The same goes for nightlife, because the bars are friendly yet nothing like the ones you can find in other parts of Samui.
Nonetheless, if you are looking for that kind of experience, then this beach is for you. You can spend a wonderful night with the love of your life drinking a refreshing cocktail while listening to live music looking into the infinity of the ocean.
You can enjoy a romantic walk across the shore as well, while the waves crush and caress your feet.
You and your children will also love it, because when the conditions are great (which is most of the time), you can swim without problems. You can play with them, run and do all sort of fun things.
If you are looking for more excitement and attractions, then you should consider other beaches. Nonetheless, if you are looking for relaxation and peace, then Maenam is the perfect beach for you.
It is essential to remark this point, so you can plan your trip properly!
#2 – If You Love It You Can Stay
Because you can find excellent accommodation options, which share the same atmosphere of Maenam: authentic peace and relaxation. If you love it a lot, then you can stay here for as long as you want!
There is an option for every kind of traveler and budget. If you want to enjoy luxury and novelty, then you can stay at Belmond Napasai or Santiburi Beach Resort Golf & Spa, both 5-star resorts with all sort of amenities and services to make your stay an amazing experience.
If you are looking for something good yet more affordable, then you can opt for the Escape Beach Resort. Excellent location, great amenities, good environment and the rooms are comfortable.
Finally, those looking for a super-affordable option, the Palm Point Village, Moonhut Bungalows and Maenam Bay Resort are the best options. Their prices are far more accessible, and still, they are good places to stay (money wise). If you want to remain in contact with nature, then renting a bungalow would be a great option, and yes, it is cheap!
If you love Maenam a lot, then you can always stay around, so you can come and enjoy the beach whenever you wish.
#3 – You Can Escape the Peace and Come Back

For example, you can drop a visit to the fisher’s village, which is only 10 minutes away by car. Nightlife is a lot more intense, so if you want to have some fun in the evening, then you can always escape for a little while to the fisher’s village.
It is also a great point from where you can visit the capital town of Samui: Nathon. It is a must visit destination, because here you can do shopping, you can find excellent restaurants (Thai and international), you will find amazing landscapes for great photographs and more.
As you can see, it is very well connected to other interesting points in the city. You can make it your headquarters your stay so you can enjoy of a peaceful and tranquil environment, but if you ever want to add more excitement to your day or night, you can find it 10 minutes away.
