About
Hemingway's on the Beach serves delicious Thai home cooked food in a relaxed very informal, barefoot setting - perfect for a romantic evening escape. Hemingway's on the Beach can be found at the heart of Thong Krut a sleepy Village on the south coast of Koh Samui. Thong Krut is famous for its views of Koh Tan and Koh Mudsum and through Hemingway's Boat Services you can now visit these islands on either the Hemingway's Speed Boat or one of three Longtail Snorkelling Boats... The snorkelling on the coral reef just off Koh Tan is exceptional and the bare foot walks along the natural beaches of Koh Mudsum are romantic and fun at the same time. Hemingway's on the Beach gives you the best that Thong

Excellent bar/ restaurant, the papaya salad is to die for! Spent two delightful evenings and would definitely make a point of visiting there again on a return trip.

This place deserves all the positive reviews that it has. It was possibly the best Thai food we had on trip. The service was very good although this is quite common in Thailand. There were 12 in our group and all meals were thoroughly enjoyed....More
