Exactly the same fine, light yellow with brownsand, interspersed with shells. Exactly the same accumulation of silt and stones under the water, and very similar unpopularity and unpopularity of the beach, due to its characteristics. Due to its small length (about 700 meters) and isolation, almost the entire coastline, geographically, belongs to one of several hotels.
Therefore, cleanliness on the beach is perfect, and trashappears on the shore only at low tide, and during heavy seas in the rainy season. 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
Sea on Laem Nan from the edge of the water and 500 metersit is very shallow from the coast, therefore the ebb and flow on the flat coast is very noticeable. At high tide, water leaves a couple of meters of sand from the shore for sun beds and umbrellas.
And at high water it is more pleasant to swim with children,due to the fact that the sandy beach temporarily becomes a sandy bottom. And with the beginning of low tide, it retreats by 10-30 meters at different parts of the beach and approaches the border of rocks and silt deposits at the bottom.
There will already have to rearrange the legs gently,choosing a place to take the next step. There is a long way to go to deep water, so it’s better to swim in slippers. With the waves, things are much nicer than on the deep-water neighboring Lamai. The shallow water on Lam Nan is usually extinguished by large waves and the sea can only be untenable with very strong winds in the off-season.
Sun beds and shade
Lam Nan Beach has a small width and thinvegetation along the sea. High water allows you to leave on the beach a couple of rows of sun loungers. Swim in the shallow sea and go for a walk, only part of the guests, while others prefer to stay near the pool, enjoying the beautiful view from under the shade of umbrellas.
On the beach there are palm trees and severaldeciduous trees, some of them are so large that you can place in their shadows a company of soldiers with field kitchens. In the south of the beach is one of these giant trees, under which the rock hid, a favorite place to play in the pirates of older children.

How to find the beach
The main landmark in order not to miss with a turn on Laem Nan - IT Complex Samui. If you move from Chaweng to the side Lamaithen when you go down from the last hillpass and exit the big turn of the ring road, carefully look at the left side. After 50 m after the IT Complex there will be a secondary road towards the sea.
Continue straight ahead to the beautiful Renaissance Koh Samui Resort & Spa
and a hundred meters after it there will be a crossroads where you have to turn right. This path will end with parking for five cars, then have to walk to the beach.
