The South Coast is an area on Ko Samui.


The South Coast of Ko Samui lacks the glamour, beauty, and amenities of other areas of Samui. It is home to the small beaches of Ban Hua Thanon, Na Khai, Laem Sor, Bang Kao and Thong Krut. These beaches are not as grand or beautiful as more popular beaches elsewhere on the island. Aside from the small fishing village of Hua Thanon, the South Coast of Samui is an agricultural area. Facilities down here cater for locals more than tourists. Once off the few main roads, this part of Koh Samui gets very rural, very quickly, which will suit you if you want peace and quiet on one of the world's most famous and busiest tropical holiday islands.

Get in[edit]

While Samui's first port was located on the south coast, today this area is the hardest to get to on the island. This is because it is far away from the airport and other ports.
