Coral Cove Beach Information Guide

Chaweng and Lamai are Koh Samui’s two most often visited holiday destinations. Coral Cove is less well known, and yet more appealing to the visitor to Samui who seeks a private piece of paradise with calm, quiet and seclusion. The beach is located off an inconspicuous turning along the hilly main road connecting the two famous holiday destinations.
The beach is roughly 200 meters in length, yet remarkable you’ll find more space to yourself here than in the busy Chaweng. At either end are boulders and rock formations creating perfect frame and the ever present Samui coconut trees are in view. The water is clean and warm, and is a good start fro your holiday swimming, snorkeling and SCUBA diving.
Coral Cove Resort has a main access to the beach, a family orientated place that also appeals to honeymooners and couples. The resort is reasonable priced, and well worth considering if you’re after that private beach experience. The area between Chaweng and Lamai offers a few other delights of its own. There’s open air rock climbing for the brave hearted. A new golf course (The Royal Samui Golf & Country Club) is in development. Restaurants make the most of the cliff op views, and this is all before we get to the offerings of Chaweng and Lamai.
Staying at Coral Cove means you’re in ten minutes travelling distance o both Chaweng and Lamai. Chaweng is the busier of the two, with a contemporary feel. Lamai is slightly less in your face, and has a pleasant bohemian feels like an English seaside resort of the 1970s. Both have a range of restaurants, shops and bars.
Samui Cliff View Resort & Spa is located on Koh Samui’s secluded eastern coast between Chaweng Noi and Lamai Beach. The Resort offers the ultimate in luxury and pleasure, with 6 beach font villas sea view and 42 deluxe villas sea view. Read more
