This wonderful "beach area" is about 4+ kms/2.5+ miles long... and has many vendors offering massages, lounge chairs, food and drinks... but it also has many areas where one can enjoy the beach's "natural beauty", the warm water, and the peacefulness which is ever present!...More

We enjoyed Lamai beach a great deal. It is way more laid back than Chaweng. It is not the finest sand I have experienced, but very nice nonetheless. With young children it it a far better choice than Chaweng wich more adult oriented.

This is a great beach to spend the day at not too busy. Blue sea to swim or just lounge about. They is the local sellers. Not too much water activates. Just a nice beach to spend the day at.

Kerry - in the English language we use the word "were, not where!!!!!". In context. Maybe some Scots spell English words differently ... Or are still learning basic English!
