Lamai Beach on Koh Samui is the second busiest on the island, behind, of course, Chaweng Beach. The Beach stretches out over 4 kilometres of golden sand all along the east coast of the island. Lamai Beach itself is not as wide as Chaweng and it drops off quite quickly into the sea too. Consequently, it makes it a great place for swimming and other water sports. Please do be a little careful not to get out of your depth too quickly here.
At the southern end of the beach, there are the most intriguing rock formations. These rocks have been lovingly named ‘Grandmother and Grandfather Rock’ (locally known as Hin Yai & Hin Ta respectively). Their familiar shapes and contours have amused people on the island since the beginning of time.
