Koh Samet is one of the top recommendations among the most stunning islands of Thailand. This pearl is located on the eastern gulf coast, not far from Pattaya.
With a length of only 6.5 kilometers, it is relatively small, but still impresses with countless fantastic dream beaches and lush nature. Especially the idyllic, snow-white sandy beaches are uniquely beautiful, which create a magnificent backdrop with the turquoise sea and the dense deciduous forests. Other highlights include the exceptionally beautiful temples and impressive statues that are spread across the island, creating a unique ambiance.
Although Koh Samet has become a popular destination for travels from Pattaya and is therefore quite touristy, you can still find lonely dream beaches on this island, some of which you can enjoy almost all to yourself. Especially the main beach Sai Kaew Beach at the beginning of the island is lively, but the further south you go, the quieter and more tranquil the island becomes. In the great hotels and bungalows directly on the beach, especially couples, but also families with children find their perfect vacation destination.
