Maenam beach

Maenam is the best beach in Samui island of Thailand, and one of the best beaches in the world. The abundance of palm trees and sand, as well as a small number of people, - all of the components of ideal tropical converged here in perfect proportions. It is possible to find cheap bungalow (600 baht) right on the beach, - best value for money! The best part of the beach - near the cafe Shangrilah Bungalows. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]

Hotels [edit]

Directly on the beach there are inexpensive bungalows. Usually they are very basic, and it is not always possible to book in advance. It is also possible to find a cozy cottage with a kitchen and a (common) pool from 900 baht per night, - or from 450 baht per night when renting for a month.

Useful information [edit]

Attention! A good part of the beach is in the west side. Do not choose a hotel in the eastern part of the beach, despite the best deals.

There is a huge number of cafes in the beach area. Lunch will cost from 150 bahts (Tom Yam soup - from 100 bahts). We recommend a good cafe in the western part of the beach near the Temple (near Lamprayah pier). Usually more cheaper the cafe - then it's more tasty. There's also nearby - on the ring road - a cafe called "We are number 1", with unlimited meals for 160 bahts (drinks are for extra money), - very tasty! Usually it's crowdy there.
