The Beach of Lamai

Everything You Need to Know About Lamai Beach

Lamai Beach is lovely - a stunning crescent of palm-fringed powdery white sand that's perfect for whiling away the day sunbathing and a deep central stretch of water great for swimming and watersports. If you are looking for a relaxing few days on the beach, the local amenities can cater adequately to all needs and you wont have to move too much at all.

At the northern end the water is shallow and rocky, however, the calm shallow nature of the sea here makes it ideal for small children.

Many vendors walk the beach selling ice cream, fruit, grilled sweet corn or chicken and Thai papaya salad, cold drinks, jewellery, sarongs, and beach games. Like in the rest of Samui, the beach vendors are polite and not too persistent and therefore offer a useful service, rather than an annoyance.

Lamai also has a number of massage salas dotted along the beach. Most of the beach masseurs offer Thai and oil massages, as well as aloe-vera body wraps, henna tattoos, manicures and hair braiding. There is also a good range of sports available for the more active beach-goer.

In the central stretch of the beach, near Lamai Wanta Resort, you will find a couple of places to rent jet-skis, and kayaks, and there is also windsurfing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, parasailing, and speedboat charters available.

As the sun goes down, some of the beachfront cafes start putting out tables on the sand, and when darkness falls, the candles and fairy lights create a romantic ambience. A cocktail or dinner under the stars is the perfect end to a day on Lamai beach.
