Chaweng Beach - the tourist hub of Koh Samui
Chaweng is by far the busiest and most popular town on Samui in part mostly because the beach here is one of the island’s best. The 6 km stretch of powder white sand beach is lined with hotels and resorts together with many beachfront eateries and bars. Chaweng is also the centre of the island’s nightlife with beachfront institutions, exciting nightclubs, live music venues and the inevitable girly bars. However it also offers a lot more with a vast selection of restaurants catering to every taste and is a shopaholic’s dream. The beach stretches from the north where there is a small island and natural reef to the south which includes a second smaller beach known as Chaweng Noi. You will find many water sport activities available including sailing, diving, kayaking and jet-skis. But you can also find peace and quiet under a coconut palm to simply relax.
