The Plai Laem area is located between the areas of Big Buddha and Choeng Mon and is runs up along the west coast of the north east peninsular and over the top taking in a few small bays on the eastern side as far as Tongson beach.
The white soft sands on the west facing unspoiled palm fringed beach stretches for 2 km however the sea is quite shallow and swimming is restricted to just paddling in most places. The popular beach of Choeng Mon with more activity is just a few minutes drive away.
The view from Plai Laem beach is stunning and is one of the best places to see Koh Samui’s amazing sunsets as the sun disappears beyond the sloping hills and north coastline. An ideal place to relax, read a book and enjoy the scenery.
We have some superb great value Plai Laem beachfront villas for holiday rental especially on the west facing coastline as well as panoramic view villas in Samrong Bay and Thongson bay on the east facing coastline.
Although this is one of Koh Samui’s quieter areas it is still in close proximity to the livelier town of Chaweng and the bustling villages of Bang Rak and Bophut
