Choengmon Beach


Choengmon beach

Today ( 09.12.2010)  we had a beautiful day! I really hope we get many more of these...I popped down to Choengmon beach to have a look, and was very pleased to see that its finally getting busier... 
People swim, relax on the sun lounges, have lunch in a beach restaurants, so it looks like a proper holiday island again... So, my couple of pictures from today: 

Choengmon beach is lovely! We often go there to swim as everything is quite perfect there, the sand is soft, the water is very clear, the nice Thai cafe is right on the beach overlooking the ocean... 
Choengmon beach is located at the north-east corner of Samui, it's a beautiful bay with a lovely sandy beach which remains quiet and the water is shallow and clean.

This is a very family friendly area, with a few very nice resorts such as Sala Samui, White House, Muang Samui Villas and Suites and Imperial Boat House situated right on the beach.  All the resorts there are built on the large grounds and therefore have bigger swimming pools than anywhere else on the island.

Many local people also come to this beach because of the local beach restaurants providing free beach lounges and chairs which is very hard to find on Samui as most of them belong to the hotels. There is a very good diving shop Searobin right on the beach, a few tailor shops, massage places, a few nice beach restaurants occasionally playing live music, and some watersports such as jet-ski, banana ride, kayaks and a floating castle for kids.

It is the best area for people who want to have a quiet and relaxing holiday and still be close to the busy Chaweng with its nighlife.

I went the other day to Honey Cottages Resort which is in the very right end of Choengmon beach and  they've given me CD with the pictures of their resort. I also found there some nice shots of Choengmon beach,  so I thought I will share them with you, guys...
