The best beach clubs in Koh Samui include quite an impressive array of styles. Some are similar to what you expect of such a venue in the Mediterranean – mostly chillout beats and party vibes. Others have a more rustic look and feel. There are also some that are more restaurant than club. What they all have in common is that they’re located on or by Samui’s lovely sands.
Beach dining is certainly a popular activity of any vacationer visiting the island. It’s relaxing and gives a feeling of casual exclusivity to enjoy delicious food and drink with your feet in the sand.
