Lipa Noi Beach Information Guide
Lipa Noi is in close proximity to Koh Samui’s main car ferry piers, making it a suitable choice for anyone intending to drive back and forth between Samui and the mainland. It’s one of the best beaches on the island for kids, because there are no rocks or coral in the water, and the sand is fine and soft. This water is suitable shallow up to 100 metres out and so great for those first paddles.
Big John Seafood is the most popular of a few spaced out bungalow options. The attached restaurant is also worth a visit for its fresh meals, lively entertainment and friendly service – a great place for a party. There are few beachside luxury villa properties for rent and the Samui Dhama Healing Centre, one of Samui's more intense fasting spas, is in walking distance.
The remoteness of the beach is what makes it most attractive to the visitors, who return here, year after year, in quite large numbers. The demographic of tourists here is older than you’ll find elsewhere on the island, and mainly comprised of pensioners and families. Be prepared to be independent, and either rent a car or strike a deal with a taxi driver. Shopping is limited in the area, and so you’ll need to go to port town Nathon, 5km away, on a regular basis.
