Excellent beautiful beach of Mae Nam (Mae Nam, Mae Nam also, meanam, Samui) 4 km in length, located on the North of Koh Samui (Maenam beach on the map). It is ideal for swimming, because the water here is decent, the bottom goes under the water rather abruptly. Because of this, the influence of the tides is almost imperceptible. The sand is yellowish, medium-grained, water is not very transparent. Even in high season it is a very desolate place, and fishermen or locals here often even more than the tourists. Entertainment on the beach almost no even chairs and umbrellas here you have to look.
As for the area, it is quite developed, but more like a very peaceful tourist village. On the one hand, it has everything for a comfortable tourist stay: rent a motorbike and car, the travel Agency, a Bank with exchange office, shops, and markets, several restaurants. But this infrastructure is very dispersed across the four-kilometer-long strip of area along the coast, no single center. Accordingly, to go out and walk in the evening, there is no room. You could even say that in the evenings there is a real backwoods. All this is compounded by the fact that the hotels and houses separated by a large distance and the forest. On the other hand, along the area is the ring road around which is full of life, and should only take up to a few hundred meters you can find supermarkets, shops, markets, salons, etc.
To get to Mae Nam beach is very easy. Along the beach only a couple-three hundred meters from the shore is the ring road, and is accessible by taxi Songthaews (from Nathon - 50 baht Chaweng - 100 baht). The taxi ride from the Airport will cost from 630 baht, 200 baht minivan. In the Western part of the beach is the pier of Lomprayah, which receives the high-speed catamarans from the island of Phangan, Tao, Hua hin and even Bangkok.
Hotels in Mae Nam is not very much, but there are also budget hotels from $ 20. There are bungalows right on the beach. The beach is very popular for a long stay, because this is one of the most inexpensive and the best places on Samui where you can rent a house or Villa for long term.
Summing up about May Us: the area is perfect for the elderly or families with children, but young and active here to be bored, even out in the evening to walk nowhere, to say nothing about the party. Even the restaurants here are not very many. If you need fun, you better look in the direction of the beaches of Chaweng, Lamai or on nearby Bophut.
