Just arrived in Koh Samui Lamai Beach, a few questions

Hi everyone,

Just arrived in Koh Samui from Koh Tao where we have been staying for the last week.

We are staying at Buddy Oriental on Lamai Beach.

Not to offend any Lamai fans but we are feeling quite underwhelmed and a little disappinted with the beach and just wondered if anyone can suggest any beaches that are a little bit prettier. Again i hope this doesnt offend anyone, its a great beach, just not to our taste.

Thanks in advance! :)

Hi

We also head south in our rental car. Ok, the beach is not fabulously touristy but there are some very pretty beaches if you get away from the east!

But please don't expect Tao.

Go to Lamai center and have a look at the beach there. E.g. next to the Swing Bar.

Thankyou for all the suggestions! We tried Silver Beach today and loved it! Really gorgeous. We are thinking we may hire a car and go off exploring the south the next few days.

Thanks!
