Laem Set Beach - a shallow beach with steep hotels.

In the southeastern part of the island there are two beaches, which are sometimes confused with each other, or they are completely joined together, omitting one of the names. These are beaches Natyen (Na Thien) and the beach near Cape Laem Set (Laem Set).

Beach description

Lam Seth Beach starts in the west, near the Ban Thale River, which shares it with the beach. Bang Kao. It runs along huge, empty, mountainous sites, and three luxury hotels: Banburee Resort & Spa

. This is one of two areas of the island, where the coastline is very picturesque, and has no direct sections longer than one hundred meters.

The beach meanders a snake, between rocks, roundboulders, trees on the shore, and changes from turn to turn. Opposite the hotel Kamalaya sand is coarse and white, with shells and pebbles. And two hundred meters to the west, the coast is covered with fine white sand with corals, to the delight of the admirers of the “bounty” beaches.

The Laem Set plots opposite hotels are listed inperfect order, cleaned and smoothed with a special tool. Given the cost of hotel rooms, (and Kamalaya is considered one of the most expensive on Samui), this is quite a reasonable procedure. Opposite the wastelands, where only the construction of hotels is planned, Lam Seth is in its original form, with a slight touch of human swinishness.

On the border of grass and sand lies a variety of garbage - from shoes to glass. As well as the remains of marine life and heaps of building materials.

The beach is entirely owned by someone andit is fenced with a barbed wire fence; therefore, on the shore you can only meet guests of four hotels and wanderers. 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

Sunset in the water all over the beach Laem Sethampered by stones. There are small areas that are relatively free of boulders and large stones, but there is no perfectly clean sandy bottom. With the ebb, the next hundred meters of the sea become one big puddle, and to the depth you will have to walk in special shoes about 400 meters.

The beach is ideal for holidays with children, for them there is a whole set of small frogs, a lot of pebbles and interesting objects on the shore, the lack of high waves in any weather, except for storms.

Shallow water is more than compensated by the purity of the waterand the scenery of Laem Set, one of the most charming and peaceful on Samui. With high water, the sea rises to the very edge of the coast, where grass and trees are already beginning to grow. And the higher the sun rises, the more incredible is the picture with azure water, white sand and the islands of Tang and Matsum.

Sun beds and shade

For independent recreation on Laem Seteconditions Or rather, while there is still a wasteland, you can enter the territory, leaving the equipment on the road, but in hotels you are unlikely to be allowed in for more than five minutes. No lounges for rent and other beach pleasures. And very rare vegetation near the water.

All trees are located at a distance from the sea. If we consider that at low tide the water runs off, God knows where - the presence of a beach umbrella at noon is just necessary.

On the beach there are kite and kayak rentals, butonly for hotel guests. The area around Lam Seth is very isolated, it is located on low mountains and represents one large green spot of the jungle, which becomes more or less populated closer to Bang Kao. The nearest hypermarket is located on Lamai, 10 km north, about 30 minutes by car.

, and a small amount of private housing. All of them are hidden behind high fences, with security, with elegant facades.

This is one of the areas where calm andThe safety of hotel guests is guarded, despite the right to freely visit the beaches in the kingdom. I was lucky to communicate with the hotel administrator Kamalay, an exceptionally friendly and adequate person who provided an escort and a golf cart for exploring the beach. All other administrators responded with a polite, or not very polite refusal.

The attendant was very surprised and on the wayDownstairs shared, that usually, guests from the side are allowed to inspect the hotel only from the lobby balcony. I also learned that a hotel is never less than 80% full.

How to find the beach

In order to get to the beach near the hotel Kamalaya, you need to turn off the ring road onto the road number 4170 near Hua Thanonaand follow the signs for Kamalaya. Near the hotel you can leave the transport and ask for permission to go to the beach, but swimming and relaxing with you there is unlikely to succeed. My advice is that there are still vacant lots, go there. It is 100 m west of Kamalay.
