In Samui’s northeastern corner, close to its ever-busy airport, is the peaceful area of Choeng Mon Beach. This small bay is renowned for its tranquillity, offering several small beachfront resorts from which guests rarely leave. Either side of the beach rest plenty of seemingly untouched coves and bays, so tourists often spend their time strolling along the shore to take in the rugged beauty.Don’t Miss
This quiet part of Samui welcomes a large number of tourists each year. There are a number of activities for visitors to enjoy.
Scuba diving is popular in this tranquil region of Samui. There is a dive centre at Choeng Mon Beach offering fully qualified and safe tours to the underwater gardens around Samui. Snorkelling from the beach is possible, although most tourists will find either headland to be much more enticing.
There is very little to do away from the beach, due to the quietness of Choeng Mon Beach. Therefore, spending a morning, afternoon, or entire day lazing upon the beach is a great way to pass the time.
There are other water activities offered at this beach. Kayaks and other paddle boats can be rented from the beach, which makes it easy to explore this small crescent-shaped bay. Paddling out to the nearby island of Ko Fan Noi is a classic afternoon activity. This small island is only a short distance from the shoreline.Restaurants and Bars
There is a large range of restaurants located in the resorts of Choeng Mon Beach, and upon the beach itself. Even though some of these restaurants serve Thai cuisine, they generally cater for the European tourist market, so dishes are not as spicy. The beach restaurants are recommended for a nice evening out, as the food and drinks are not overly expensive, and diners can enjoy great views over the water. These venues make up the relaxed nightlife along Choeng Mon Beach each night.Shopping
Aside from a few local vendors, there isn’t much in the way of shopping at Choeng Mon Beach. Instead, tourists are advised to travel 15 minutes south to the busy shopping facilities of Chaweng, or five minutes to the area of Mae Nam.
