A beach holiday with flare awaits at Chaweng Beach.

On an island replete with popular beaches, Chaweng Beach has become one of the favoured destinations for those who go on holiday on Koh Samui, Thailand’s third-largest island. Tourists looking to combine a beach holiday with some partying on the side would do well to look for villas at Chaweng Beach, as this is Koh Samui’s party headquarters. What’s more, given the fact that it doesn’t take much time to get anywhere on the island, booking a holiday house or villa at Chaweng Beach means being right in the middle of the action and quickly getting to all the other tourist attractions on the island.

HomeAway has a wide variety of accommodations at Chaweng Beach in a number of price classes. There are villas with private pools for larger groups and smaller Chaweng Beach rentals that come with all the modern amenities one needs to feel at home.

Those who want to be close to the action in a quieter part of the island should check out HomeAway’s selection of holiday homes across Koh Samui. Many travellers who visit Koh Samui also want to explore Phuket, and HomeAway also has holiday homes there.

Things to do

Green Mango Strip:

This is by far Chaweng Beach’s most popular area in terms of nightlife and restaurants. The strip is about two miles long and is packed with everything revellers could desire, from relaxed pubs and swanky bars to bass-blasting discos and more alternative dance venues.

Canopy Adventures:

Canopy Adventures are a great idea for more athletic tourists. Ride cables through the rain forest and see the flora, fauna, and waterfalls up close and personal. There are three different tree houses and six different cable rides that offer over 1/3 of a mile of fun for the whole family.

Samui Monkey Theater:

This theatre is a great experience for both kids and parents. Monkeys are trained to pick coconuts and put on a unique show in an open-air theatre. The shows are funny and entertaining, and give visitors a chance to interact with monkeys in a safe way.

Big Game Fishing Trip:

A Big Game Fishing Trip is a great way to spend a relaxing day out on the water. The boat comes with a captain and crew who bring the boat to the best fishing spots for barracuda, mackerel, snapper, and many other types of fish. The day includes an on-board lunch and live bait.

Chaweng Thai Boxing Stadium:

This stadium has fights featuring Thai and international fighters three times each week. The entrance fee varies but is generally not more than 1500 Bhat. Those who would like to train in Thai fighting can do so for just 600 Bhat per day.

Calypso Diving Center:

The waters that surround Koh Samui attract many travellers who enjoy diving, and Calypso Diving Center brings divers to the best spots. Explore the coral reefs and abundant sea life. The Calypso Diving Center is PADI-certified, and the friendly staff can help organise tours.

Weather in Chaweng

Temperatures on Koh Samui range between 26–32°C. March and April are the hottest months. There are occasional thunderstorms in the evening from May to September, but these brief showers provide respite from the heat. The rainy season is from September to November. While beach holidays are still enjoyable, this is not the best time to come for those interested in diving, as the rain decreases visibility.

Travel to Chaweng Beach

The best way to get to Chaweng Beach is to fly into Samui Airport (USM). From there travellers can hire a car or take a taxi (about 400 Bhat). Chaweng Beach is just south of the airport, and the drive only takes a few minutes. Those travelling from Phuket can either fly (about one hour) or take a ferry (about six hours) to Koh Samui.

We had never been to Koh Samui before, but having driven around the island, we thought the location was absolutely ideal. It is quiet and peaceful, but everything you need (quality restaurants - Thai and some Western, laundry, boat trips, snorkelling, small grocery outlets) is accessible within easy walking distance. Jakub was great - very knowledgeable about the island and available to help us arrange outings and transportation. Highly recommended.
