This is the most perfect beach I've ever been to. I truly questioned why the movie The Beach wasn't filmed here instead of Koh Phi Phi. Not much else to say - it's postcard perfect.

Gorgeous shallow beach, perfect for kids but just watch out for the rocks under the surface. Nice vibe here.

Simple to explain: for me the nicest place on the Island! If you look from the viewpoint down, you will start loving this spot. If you stay there you not want to go away!

you really need to get on a boat and visit the islands. generally there is no good off-beach snorkelling in Koh Samui. same goes for Kao Lak - you need to go to the Similan or Surin islands.
