Chaweng Noi is located on the eastern coast of Koh Samui, known for boundless beauty and tranquility. It lies to the south of the popular Chaweng Beach. The Chaweng Noi Beach offers a calmer alternative to the buzzing Chaweng Beach. Stretching across half a mile of pristine white sands, dazzling the clear waters fringed by swaying palms, flourishing with tropical foliage and bright sunshine, Chaweng Noi is easily one of the best places in Samui to enjoy a life of blissful tranquility and relaxed entertainment.
How is Chaweng Noi different from Chaweng?
Chaweng has the largest beach in Koh Samui located along the east coast. Approximately 7 km long, it is lined with beautiful coconut trees. Chaweng is the heartbeat of Koh Samui's vibrant nightlife with several bars, nightclubs, and restaurants and is a hot favorite with youngsters and party-goers for its pulsating energy.
Chaweng Noi on the other hand caters to those who prefer a slightly laidback vibe such as families. It caters to peace-loving yet outdoorsy people. Located at the southernmost tip of Chaweng it is around a headland. This tranquil stretch of powdery sand is nothing like the larger beach to the north. As you cross the headland you will discover calm and crystal-clear water laced by virgin sands. On full moon nights, the beach is spectacular with moonlight cast all over the untouched landscape and you can spot large stingrays in the water that highlight the beauty and uniqueness of the beach.
In comparison to the busy upbeat life in Chaweng, living in Chaweng Noi can offer a fine balance of relaxing in peace as well as enjoying some wholesome entertainment.
Chaweng Noi is the perfect place to have a great time with family. The beach at Chaweng Noi has a shallow part where children can safely play and have lots of fun.
