KOH SAMUI Gay Beaches 2021

Gay Koh Samui Guide

The gay beach in Koh Samui is located in Chaweng.

Chaweng gay beach

Chaweng gay beach is just minutes from the gay bars and clubs.

The area of Patong is not only famous for its vibrant gay life but also for its exclusive gay beach section in the middle of Patong Beach!, just in front of La Flora hotel. The sun lounges have unfortunately gone but beach umbrellas can be hired for 100BHT or you can buy your own for about 250BHT from the local market stalls.

Koh Samui is world famous for its white sandy, coconut tree-fringed beaches. Almost all the beaches are well-organised with sun loungers & shades available for rent and plenty of bars, cafés & restaurants nearby. Each of the beaches and towns of Koh Samui offer something different, whether it’s a hedonistic party atmosphere, peaceful isolation, plenty of activities, a traditional feel or just a big stretch of sand to relax on.

At 7 km long, Chaweng Beach is the longest, most developed and most popular beach on Koh Samui. The area around the end of Soi Lamdin (off Chaweng Beach Road) tends to be particularly popular with gay sunbathers.

Best known for its nightlife, it is the place to go to party, though it is also home to the island’s biggest shopping complex and a fantastic range of hotels, activities, attractions and restaurants. The beach itself is most people’s idea of paradise, with nodding palm trees surrounding the numerous resorts which are placed right by the sand while fine white sand leads into a beautifully clear sea.

There are numerous upmarket resorts along the beach that extend back to Chaweng Beach Road, the epicentre of Koh Samui’s gay and straight nightlife.

Lamai Beach

More relaxed beach, great value

Samui’s second largest beach located on a corner in the south of the island. The white sandy Lamai Beach has a quieter, more laid-back atmosphere than Chaweng, although there is still plenty to see and do.

Like in Chaweng, nightlife is still a major attraction and there are plenty of great dining, entertainment and accommodation options. The older of Koh Samui’s more popular destinations, it has a cheap and cheerful atmosphere and some truly unique attractions. The southern end of the beach is best for swimming. The northern end is quieter and shallow quite a long way out. There is a good choice of beach restaurants and cheaper places to eat and drink along the road immediately behind the beach.

MaeNam Beach

Clean clear waters, mix of budget and high end hotels

MaeNam (or Mae Nam) Beach extends west from BoPhut beach along the northern coast of Samui. This quiet beach is lined with coconut trees and retains some of Samui character from the day’s before mass tourism.

Looking out towards Koh Phangan, Maenam Beach is popular with backpackers and offers everything that you would expect of such a title – budget shopping, fun activities and its fair share of rough-and-ready restaurants, along with a good selection of low-cost accommodation right on the beach. However, the other end of the spectrum is also very well catered for, with high-quality and very private five-star resorts, fine dining options and a quiet, sophisticated nightlife. Either way, Maenam Beach is a great place to go to relax and take it easy on a pleasant beach.

Village Feel, upmarket hotels.

BoPhut (or Bo Phut), located on the north coast of Koh Samui, is a beautiful indented beach that is often called “bay”.  The sandy shoreline is a few kilometres long.

BoPhut is also home to the famous “Fisherman’s Village”, a narrow street lined with wooden Chinese shophouses, boutiques and restaurants. An interesting meeting point between old and new, the Fisherman’s Village of this north-coast resort destination proudly displays the heritage of Koh Samui. The old wooden Thai-Chinese shop-houses are intermingled with modern conveniences, such as several beautiful modern resorts right on the stunning two-kilometre-long beach, boutique shops, chic and retro restaurants, and a small selection of fun activities and attractions.
