This extension of Chaweng Beach is quite different

Chaweng Point is our own name for the few small beaches and stretches of rocky coast found just around the northern corner from Chaweng proper. Despite that the hotels here cling to the famous name Chaweng, this really is a separate stretch of coastline. The small beaches here are separated by patches of granite boulders, their sand is generally coarse and the water shallow. In most places swimming is only possible at high tide. But this area is picturesque, much quieter than Chaweng Beach proper and the special atmosphere here well suited to guests seeking to escape the hyper-activity of Chaweng.
.
Like Chaweng Noi at the southern extreme of this famous beach area, this stretch of coast has more 4-star and 5-star beachfront accommodations, larger resorts set in lush tropical gardens and more beach luxury. All beach resorts here are set into the hillside, making ocean view rooms the norm. There are lots of infinity pools with great sea views here. The better resorts all have a full service spa offering Thai massage, massage therapy and a range of health & wellness treatments.
.
5-star Anantara Lawana is a luxury pool villa resort set into outstanding gardens, giving privacy & luxury. Their sea view restaurant is outstanding in its hilltop location and jungle design. See our photos. Al's Laem Son Resort has elevated 4-star villas with great views.
.
Nora Beach Resort is one of the original resorts on this beach, with traditional bungalow rooms spread through lush tropical gardens. This, too, runs up the hillside offering accommodation in a mix of rooms and pool villas with great ocean views. Nora has a large beachside pool and a beautiful, relaxing beachfront area with an outstanding beach bar.
.
5-star Nora Buri Resort is the newer, more modern sister of its older namesake, offering more luxurious rooms set into the hillside. Note that some rooms lie across the road.
.
Kanda Residences Samui is one of the only villa-style resorts on this coast, with multi-bedroom accommodations, each with a swimming pool in private gardens. The beach here is small and not great, though it’s picturesque. The environment along this stretch of undeveloped coast is very tranquil, with hardly any man-made constructions in view.
.
Further north, and technically in Choeng Mon district, Outrigger Koh Samui is hidden on its own little beach, with luxurious beach-view cottages in spacious gardens.
.
This little stretch of Samui is picturesque, very quiet and suitable for those seeking a tranquil beach getaway with easy access to all of the many lifestyle attractions in Samui’s northeast corner.
