Lamai Beach  

Lamai Beach is the second most popular beach, located 10 km to south of Chaweng Beach. Along the 4-km long coastline, creamy white sand beach lies parallel with deep blue seawater. Although there is no coral reef to decorate the sea, coconut-shaded beach portrays Lamai in peaceful and natural look.

Southern Lamai Beach situates many interesting rock formations and pools, especially the famous Hin Ta and Hin Yai, literally meaning grandfather and grandmother rocks. These renowned rocks are in Tambol Mared, Nakhon Sri Thammarat Province. The folk tale of them has been told for ages. Once upon a time, there was an old couple named Ta Kreng and Yai Riam. They wanted to sail for proposing a daughter of Ta Mong Lai for their son. When they reached Lamai Cape, the storm occurred and hit their boat down. Their bodies were washed ashore to create the rocks.

Not only natural attractions, Lamai also draws charms of local open-air market and old monastery, local museum and picturesque village scenes. Further south on beach side of the main road, is Wat Silangu, one of two golden pagodas on the island. This stunning spot features a shimmering exterior with solemn look against backdrop of the beauty of deep blue sea.

Lamai Beach homes a few smart resorts, but full of budget accommodation which caters to travelers on a shoestring. The beach also offers numerous healing resorts, health centers and spas, bringing the northern beach to be named 'Longevity Beach'. However, if you are looking for a nice restaurant, it is better to go to Chaweng Beach, taking only 20-minute drive.

Each part of the beach offers different atmosphere. One wishing to stay in tranquility needs to go to northern Chaweng Beach. On the contrary, middle Chaweng Beach, the elbow of the bay, are always crowded while southern end of the beach is the ideal beach for swimming.

Big Buddha

Big Buddha, Samui's most famous landmark, is found on a very small island northeast of Bophut. It is connected to the main island by a small road. This golden statue is 12 meters tall and sits atop a wide staircase decorated with dragons. At the foot of the main building are many religious offering stands and several nice golden statues, including a reclining Buddha. You can donate some money by writing your name on a tile which will become part of the floor, or have your good fortune told by a 5-Baht coin machine: set the machine according to your birthday and you will be given a number; then look at the poster on the wall to find the corresponding number and your fortune (written in English also). Following Thai tradition, remove your shoes before climbing the stairs to see the wonderful view of Bophut Bay from the top. Like Bophut itself, this area remains a peaceful and relaxing interlude from the bustle of Chaweng.
