Enjoy a beautiful holiday at Mae Nam Beach.

Located on the island of Koh Samui, Mae Nam Beach is a beautiful place to spend a Thai holiday. Though Koh Samui has several popular beaches, Mae Nam Beach is quieter and less crowded than the others, making it an ideal location for families who desire a tranquil break. Swimming is excellent, and when the wind picks up, Mae Nam Beach is also a great place for wind surfing.

Mae Nam Beach was long a favourite destination for backpackers, but over the years this idyllic beach has transformed into a destination with a greater variety of accommodation options. HomeAway offers several villas at Mae Nam Beach, ranging from holiday villas that accommodate 20+ to smaller houses and bungalows. Many of the apartments at Mae Nam Beach even have private pools.

HomeAway also offers holiday homes in other locations on Koh Samui such as Lamai Beach and Bang Po Beach, while those wishing to explore multiple islands can also find holiday homes on Phuket.

Things to do

Angthong Marine Park:

This national park consists of three islands where travellers can enjoy beaches, spectacular views and kayaking. Those who seek a unique experience can indulge in a spot of elephant trekking; the price to get to the park includes entry to a fish spa. The trip to the national park takes about one hour by speedboat.

Walking Street Market:

Every Thursday evening there is a market near the Chinese temple that attracts a mixture of locals and tourists. Visitors can sample local cuisine such as fried crickets while listening to local bands or sipping on an inexpensive cocktail. Those looking for fresh fish should head to Fisherman’s Village, which is only five minutes from the market.

Santiburi Golf Course and Country Club:

This championship golf course is located on the mountainous side of Koh Samui and is a must for those who crave a round of 18 holes. Given the hilly landscape, the course presents a tough challenge – one that also offers picturesque views of the island.

Koh Tan:

Koh Tan is a nearby island replete with many attractions. Tourists can go snorkelling or scuba diving to explore the coral reefs and sea life, while those wishing to see more of the island can take a 30-minute walk to the beautiful Namuang Waterfall, where the pools offer a refreshing way to relax after the trek.


Mae Nam Beach is home to several spas that will make a Thai holiday even more relaxing. These range from cheaper spas with decent massages to more luxurious options at upscale resorts, such as Napasai resort, where the immersive experience goes above and beyond that of a standard Thai massage.

Full Moon Parties:

Koh Samui is renowned for its vibrant, pulsating full moon parties. These parties are intense events with blasting music; travellers looking for a wild night out will feel right at home and will relish the chance to party with locals and fellow tourists.

Weather at Mae Nam Beach

The weather on Koh Samui can be broken down into three seasons. The dry season, from December to February, sees little rain and temperatures slightly lower than the typical 28°C. The hot season runs from March to August, when temperatures rise to the 30s. Brief late afternoon thunderstorms are not uncommon. The rainy season runs from September to November, when rain generally comes in short bursts. During this period, beach holidays are still great, but the choppy waters make diving less enjoyable.

Travel to Mae Nam Beach

The easiest way to get to Mae Nam Beach is to fly into Samui Airport (USM) and rent a car. From the airport, drive along the Ring Road to Mae Nam Beach, which is about 18 miles from the airport. Those coming from Phuket can either take a one-hour flight or a six-hour ferry from Phuket to Koh Samui.

    Just got back from a months stay in this quiet, and very beautiful villa. the location is fantastic. The villa is one of only 11 villas at Kalara Gardens, with two swimming pools. The villa is beautiful, with lovely sparkling clean facilities, wonderful gardens full of plants and flowers and huge butterflies, and magnificent views as far as Phangan Island. all service daily by the very helpful and his family who live on site. The villa is about 300 yards from the beach road so you will need some form of transport to get down and up the hill, we hired a scooter from a lovely family , just down on the main road, for 175 baht per day, we had it for the whole month, which gave us the opportunity to see much of the north and all of the west of Koh Samui, viewing different parts of the island. This holiday was one of our most memorable for many many years,great wi fi connection, lots of restaurants and beaches to visit,something different to do everyday. My wife and I are in our early seventies, and enjoyed the whole expierience, thank you Ray & Brenda , from England
