A little gem of a beach (silver beach in the crystal bay), for those who want peace and quiet, away from the buzz of the main beaches on Koh Samui. Access to this beach is not strait forward, I just walked through the hotel! There are a few trees that provide a bit of shade. Swimming is great, the bay... More

Stayed nearby and walked over to Silver Beach one day at around 1 pm. You will have to quickly pass through one of the few resorts along the beach to reach it. The beach was not crowded at all (probably because it was low season), and was quiet with nice white sand and clear water. There are quite a few... More

Fine white sand, clear water, coconut palm, superb rocks .... a magnificent postcard. Despite the tourist crowd, the beach still remains a very calm, family beach. If you seek relaxation and swimming it is here that you have to be. A few bar and restaurant ensures the service by the beach and even on the beach if you wish. I... More

My wife and i stayed close to the silver beach aprox 15 min away. We came here almost evry day with our bike. In november it is not so crouded and enough place to sit and relax on the beach. There are also enough places to eat and drink.

Nice little beach area in Lamai to visit for something other to do than stay in Chaweng. Can get a tuk tuk or taxi out there, few restaurants/bars to cater for food requirements and drinks, nice beach area for swimming.

Be wary of the rocks whilst swimming but a great bar with the usual specials on the cocktails . We were dropped off during a cruise so only spent about an hour

I have generally been disappointed by the quality of the beach at Bo Phut where we were staying. However, we went on a yacht cruise and stopped here for a swim. What beautiful sand. Soft and white. Perfect. Worth a visit.

It is a small jewel in Koh Samui. Dont miss the chance to visit. It is not a big one and tends to get crowded once in a while. The place has a great restaurant as well, great sand and some rocks in the water. It is good for snorkeling. There is natural shade by some of the trees. Unfortunatelly... More
