Located on the gorgeous holiday island of Koh Samui, in Thailand, is the resort area known as Maenam Beach. This particular area has plenty of self catering accommodation available for your Maenam Beach holidays and it is said that families are particularly well catered for in this region of Thailand. Maenam Beach holidays really will give you the chance to recharge your batteries and you can then venture a little further afield on the island for more vigorous and action packed activities.
Maenam Beach holidays will boast a 250 metre long stretch of perfectly white sandy shoreline. This provides you with the ideal opportunity to get involved in a whole number of watersports: water skiing, paragliding, jet skiing, banana boat rides, wind surfing - you name it, you will find the activity available in this part of Koh Samui. Your accommodation in Maenam Beach will be located in a tranquil and quiet part of the island and you will need to travel to other towns and resorts for other activities and attractions.
One attraction you simply cannot miss whilst on your Maenam Beach holidays is Wat Phra Yai. This is a huge, golden Buddha statue that will really help you to understand the main religion of the island of Koh Samui. Other activities available on the island include ample opportunities to scuba dive around the shores that are teaming with colourful and tropical marine life. Another very popular evening excursion for those staying in accommodation in Maenam Beach is to take the boat trip over to the nearby island of Koh Pha Ngan. People make this trip to take full advantage of an unforgettable Full Moon party and these soirees are always guaranteed to be fun.
Thai weather is one of the biggest draws for tourists making the trip to their country. There is a wet season between September and November but even then, you should still find plenty of days with sunshine. Temperatures do not tend to vary that dramatically throughout the year. You are likely to experience temperatures well into the thirties degrees Celsius and rainfall levels are high at 64 inches; most of which will fall during the wet season.
Your self catering accommodation in Koh Samui will be conveniently located close to the main airport on the island - Koh Samui International (USM). There are a few airlines flying to this region of Thailand and they include Thai Airways, Emirates and Cathay Pacific. For direct, scheduled flights to your Maenam Beach holidays you will tend to find that services will mainly leave from London Heathrow (LHR). However, some charter flights may leave from other main UK airports.
