Koh Samet

Posted by admin on 2024-02-25

You reach the paradise island of Koh Samet by car and speedboat in less than an hour from Sabai Village. Alternatively, you can take a bus to Ban Phe where there are boats at two piers to the island. One pier is more commercial and the traffic is run by businesses, mostly for tourists. At the next pier there are some fishing boats that ply the route and the ticket price is lower. Expect a boat price of about 30-90 Baht.

Koh Samet is one of Thailand’s most beautiful islands. Barely 5 km long and 1 km wide, this island has several beautiful beaches with Thailand’s whitest sand and crystal blue water.

Getting between those beaches on the east side is painless. The beaches are short and what separates them are usually only a few rocks. After Ao Phutsa, the roads between the beaches become a bit more difficult. However, it does not take more than 10-20 minutes to get between the beaches. You can also take the main road and turn onto the beaches, but it is usually more interesting to take the natural route over the rocks.

Koh Samet offers accommodation in different price ranges. On site, you can find very simple accommodation, for very little money, but a lot of accommodation is usually booked by Thais who come to the island for shorter holidays – mainly weekends.

Nightlife on Koh Samet is calm and quiet most of the time. Most of the slightly more lively beach pubs and beach bars are located on the first beach, Hat Sai Kaew. Typical bars that you find in other parts of Thailand, you don’t find here, which is appreciated by the tourists who come here.

At Hat Sai Kaew, you can also see the fire show that is arranged in the evenings after dark. At the beach, the area is prepared, just before dark, but small tables and mats you can sit on and enjoy the music and food.
