Maenam Beach is one of our favorite beaches in Koh Samui because of its tranquility and natural, real local feel. It's one of the longest Koh Samui beaches, situated on the north coast. Maenam beach is free of hotels and restaurants overcrowding. Here you can find accommodation for every budget and walking along the beach, you will also find local beach bars that serve amazing food and happy hour cocktails. Oh!, and did I mention you get to enjoy some stunning views across to Koh Phangan?. This beach may not have the softest sand or the clearest water, but visitors love it because of the relaxed, tropical feel. It's also great for families with kids as the water is warm and not very deep. The most children friendly area in Maenam beach located at Silent Beach.
CORAL COVE BEACH
THONGSON BAY BEACH
CHOENG MON BEACH
Choeng Mon Beach is a fantastic option when travelling with kids. The beach is located on the northeastern tip of the island, here you will find lovely fine sand, clear warm waters, ambience but not too busy. It is a beautiful bay so the water is not too deep or too shallow, just perfect for kids to swim; There are many kid-friendly hotels around and plenty of restaurant choices for those hungry tummies after a fun day at the beach. If you spend the afternoon at this beach, there is a night market in Choeng Mon on Wednesdays (make sure the market is open as it has been recently closed for renovations).

LIPA NOI BEACH
Lipa Noi Beach- We love this beach because it’s far from the hustle and bustle of Koh Samui, it’s beautiful with fine white sand and clear blue water. A great beach for kids, with a local feel compared to others in Koh Samui located in more touristy areas like Bophut Beach. Plus, on this part of the island, the west coast, you get to experience some of the most breathtaking sunsets in Koh Samui. Don't miss Lipa Noi Beach if you are on the West coast of Koh Samui next to the popular Nikki Beach Club, between Nathon and Taling Ngam!
OTHER CHILD FRIENDLY BEACHES IN KOH SAMUI
There are more family friendly Koh Samui beaches we decided to skip on this blog post because they are either far from facilities or a bit too crowded at times. A recommended mention would be Crystal Bay as well known as Silver Beach with shallow waters and fine sand, but a bit too crowded during high season. Better to go to Silver Beach off-season. Ban Tai Beach is another runner up. Ban Tai Beach is really nice, quiet and wild, but a bit far from restaurants and facilities.
