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.

Spas:

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.

The villa is very private to lounge around the pool, but has the resort access if that is what you want. It is very convenient to go to the lobby to have them arrange a driver/taxi for anything that you want to do and there was a handful of good restaurants that we walked to. The beach is reachable by walking, but be prepared for a longer walk, which we didn't mind. It was also nice to jump back in the pool after the walk back. The kitchen was well stocked and the rooms were also very comfortable. The owner is very nice and shared many great recommendations for restaurants/sites to visit and quick to reach out to ensure that the accommodations are good. It was the perfect balance of privacy, but ability to go out to the busier places around the island with ease. Definitely recommended

It is so peaceful and surrounded by coconut and banana trees but only 4km Into the centre of Maenam. There are lots of beautiful birds and butterflies around in the garden and we even saw a red squirrel one day. We hired a car, so it's only about 5 mins drive down to the town. There are lots of good eating places to choose from such as Twins, Spices, Romans, which were our three favourites. The pool is 9 metres long, so more than adequate for doing some exercise and for cooling down. The street market in Maenam on Thursday night and Fishermans Village on Friday night are well worth a visit, The sun is on the pool area in the morning until about 1.30, so plenty of time to catch the sun. It is so relaxing at the villa and so peaceful. It is also very private as the villa next door is screened off by very tall bamboo. If you open up all the windows in the lounge it is lovely and there are fly screen doors on all of them, which is great. The bed in the master bed room is so comfortable and the air conditioning is very efficient and quiet. We didn't cook while we were there as it is so cheap to eat out. There is a hob but we only used it to boil eggs for breakfast. We loved the villa so much we are looking to book again for 2017. We Have a rule that we don't go to the same place twice, but we enjoyed this so much we will make an exception.

It's right on the beach with many places to eat close by. Alistar made us feel very welcome and was available if we needed anything. Also, Alistar made sure we had transportation to and from the ariport. When travelling in a foreign country this is a real plus.
