If you’re thinking about visiting Koh Samui and booking your stay at Banana Fan Sea Resort, here are the breathtaking sea-and-sand destinations that you should add to your itinerary:

Chaweng Beach

Situated on the east coast of Koh Samui, Chaweng Beach’s strong and attractive reputation as a must-visit destination is built on two factors: a world-famous beautiful white sand beach and excellent nightlife.

Critical to the tourism of the island destination, this beach provides one of the most desirable locations for anyone looking to relax when the sun is up and party when the sun is down. Beyond the famous powdery white-sand beach and crystal-clear waters, this destination on the Gulf of Thailand is also notably home to world-class after-hours experiences, thanks to establishments like Street Bar and Kevin’s Bar!

Silver Beach

Known as Haad Thong Takhian to locals and veteran travelers, the Silver Beach is a textbook paradise located north of Lamai that is considered by many as the place to swim in all of Koh Samui and Thailand.

Aside from the name “Silver Beach,” this destination is also widely known as Crystal Bay because it hosts the perfect swimming conditions with its crystal clear waters that sparkle under the Thai sun. If you want to soak up your surroundings, this destination is the place to be because it features large rocks that spring from the seawater, making for a cove-like appeal that makes for easier immersion!

Lamai Beach

With a reputation as the most relaxing spot in all of Thailand, Lamai Beach features a trademark soothing atmosphere that makes way for seemingly never-ending bliss and mindfulness.

If you’re looking for a spot that doesn’t have the same level of buzz as other beaches in Koh Samui, then this is the place for you since it has a much quieter atmosphere that is akin to what you’d find when meditating. Locals also believe that Lamai Beach sometimes experiences a maturation that makes way for a much more natural and quiet atmosphere—a rare sight considering the same can’t be said for other destinations!


When it comes to enjoying beaches in Thailand, no destination provides experiences that are wondrous as those that can be found on the beaches of Koh Samui. If you’re looking for a well-rounded experience that will put you right in the heart of different types of beaches, adding the three destinations mentioned above is the way to go!
