Beach description

Chong Mona sand is grayish, very fine, withwetting turns into a liquid gruel, and within the surf strip it is so tightly rolled by the waves that you can ride a motorcycle. Clean the beach is maintained where it passes through the coastal hotels. But Chong Mona’s charm is that there are several sites on it, where there are no pathetic hotels, but private Thai restaurants and massage salons have settled.

Which on the purity of the beach deep on the drum. There are no garbage mountains, but small plastic objects and paper often come across. Chong Mon is one of the most popular and crowded beaches. And on this Samui appendix, it is almost the only normal beach to which you can freely come and swim like a human being.

Neighbors Chong Mona on the left, looking at the sea: Tong Sai and Samrong - good beaches, but they are located in the closed areas of monopolistic hotels. Play Laemwhich is located on the other side of the appendix, ten minutes from Chong Mona - rather wild and shallow, and not suitable for swimming. BUT Chaweng Yai which to the right of Chong Mona is overgrown with algae.

Only a small copy of Chong Mona remains - Tong Son Bay, which can also be reached without further ado. 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

The clear entrance to the water, without stones and coral debris, is located in the middle of the beach, between the hotels of the Imperial Boat

and Sala Samui Resort

. On the remaining sections of Chong Mona, the entrance to the seadifficult because of the stones and corals, which are almost near the shore and prevent swimming. The depth of the sea allows adults to swim 30 meters from the shore, without reaching their feet.

After low tide, the sea moves closer to underwater.surprises at 10 meters and, at the entrance, you have to carefully choose the place to put your foot. The water is turbid. The sea at low tide becomes shallow, which pleases preschool children, but older people have to go 30-50 m further. At the peak of low tide, fifty meters from the shore, the depth of water for an adult reaches waist-high.

On the beach of Chong Mon, large waves do not often occur and there are no seasonal undercurrents, as is observed on Lamai.
