Coral Cove Beach - Coral Bay on Samui

Coral Cove got its name from the bay on the east side of Koh Samui, between the beaches Chaweng Noi and Tongkakian. If you have not studied the island well enough, for orientation purposes, we can assume that Coral Cove lies between Chaweng and Lamai - these beaches you know for sure.

Beach description

Coral Cove (Coral Cove) means "CoralBay". Its length is only 176 meters, including huge boulders that hide a small patch of sand from the main beach. All 176 meters of the shore are 25 meters wide, covered with large reddish sand interspersed with coral fragments. The area behind the boulders is covered with even larger sand, on which it is unpleasant to walk barefoot, and even in the afternoon sun it even hurts.

Sand loose as on Maename, which makes it difficult to walk and does not contribute to your stability on a steep slope at the entrance to the water.

In view of its size and absenceinfrastructure, Coral Cove is one of the most clean and well-kept beaches of Koh Samui. It does not spoil even the presence of a small bed of the stream, which almost dries up in the heat, and when the heavy rains of the wet season plays the role of drainage. In case anyone is interested in reading about other places, I have a short overview of all the beaches of Samui, will help you decide on the choice of the beach.

Sunset, depth and waves

Water off the coast of the Coral Bay without silt andmarine litter, very clean. The depth of the Coral Cove does not keep itself waiting, so you can not figure out what is at the bottom with the naked eye. The coast quickly goes under water, and the legs are off the bottom already three steps from the beach.

With children on this beach is not easy to relax, andit is better not to let them go water alone. Due to deep water, Coral Cove does not change at low tide, but is subject to high waves, especially in windy and stormy weather.

Sun beds and shade

Sun beds are available at nearby hotels, butintended only for guests of the institution. The presence of a large amount of natural shade from palms and rocks provides a comfortable rest savage. The bulk of people arrive here on motorbikes, with one towel in the trunk.

Coral Cove is located 3 km from Chaweng, and 4 kmfrom Lamai. There are the attributes of civilization nearest to the beach. The Tesco Lotus hypermarket on Lamai is 5 km from Coral Cove, and the “big three” hypermarkets on Chaweng are 8 km away, which is about 15-20 minutes by car through Chaweng traffic jams. Sightseeing, five-minute access from Coral Cove Beach:

  • snorkeling;
  • Elephant Rock is a rock hanging over the Ring Road in one of the sharp turns toward Lamai;
  • several viewing platforms.

The beach has a volleyball net and there isone small Thai restaurant. If you turn to the right, after going to the beach, go through boulders and a separate patch of beach with coarse sand, you will be rested against a pile of stones. Immediately behind them is hidden inaccessible beach, on which rarely one appears - to note to nudists :)

Houses and hotels on the beach

Coral Cove is 50 meters from the Ring Road. This distance was enough to put only one hotel - Coral Cove Resort

which is divided into two types of buildings: resort and chalets, they vary in comfort and price. On the other side of the road, the mountainside begins, and somewhere there are three resorts upstairs, but there are no private houses in this area.

The nearest accommodation for rent you will find only on Lamai. If you want to book a hotel here in advance or search for accommodation on other beaches, I have a selection of hotels in Samui with a good rating and reviews.

How to find the beach

There is only one entrance to the beach.also quite simple. The main thing is not to accelerate much on the section of the road, where the blue sign of the Beach Republic stands, you can see it if you drive from the direction of Chaweng. As a guide, you can use trampled by cars and bikes section of the curb, where people drop parked vehicles.

Strictly opposite it is the exit to the side.seas. Parking is downstairs, but it is small and often driven by cars. Two or three pickups are enough to have no place to turn around, especially if there is an influx of visitors on scooters.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
