Maenam Beach, Mae Nam

4.1
Laid-back and private, Maenam Beach mainly draws a backpacker crowd. The beach offers excellent views of the island of Koh Pha Ngan, and its resorts are set much farther away than at other beaches, allowing for a quieter atmosphere. Stretch out on the soft golden sand, in the sun or under the canopy of palm trees, and then cool off in the calm sea. Amenities include many restaurant options along the beach, as well as massage kiosks offering Thai massages. If you fall in love with the spot, consider staying in one of the affordable bungalows dotting the shoreline.

  • Beach is beautiful but the slope down to water makes it a tough walk if your into beach walks. We almost had the beach to ourselves in September! Lots of places along the beach were closed but that's ...  more »
  • Let's go to Mae Nam beach since mid-90'. We've seen him evolve over the course of a dozen stays, let's always stay in the Moo1 (Old Mae Nam). The water of the beach is not of the same quality and transparency along its entire length (3-4 kms?): if at its 2 ends it is okay, in the middle, especially in the areas where the rivers flow: attention !!! The beach façade is now almost entirely built. During our last visit, (too) many demolition and reconstruction projects, usually luxury resorts or villas that are increasingly raising the price of housing "feet in the water". It is now difficult to find a double room or bungalow within 1500 THB !!! even in the low tourist season. Too expensive for what it is !!!! The peak tourist season has been declining in recent years, only February is almost full on the beach. What a waste!!! Chôkdee!
