At Chaweng South both the beach & resorts grows quieter

Chaweng Beach begins to change as we move into this southern area. It becomes quieter, with less activity and fewer bars on the beach. There are plenty of romantic restaurants on the sand, however, and again beds for beach massage are found under virtually all big shady trees.
.
The beach is quiet wide here, the white sand is soft underfoot, the water good for swimming in all but the Nov-Jan Northeast monsoon season. Many resorts extend their restaurants out on the sand each evening, offering romantic beach dining. BBQ Thai seafood is the standard offering here, though most also offer a range of Thai cuisine.
.
Also, the resorts in this area grow in size and quality, giving more space and becoming more quiet and romantic. The standard is 3-star to 4-star beach cottages in beach gardens, though there are a few budget exceptions, plus the huge, 5-star Centara Grand Beach Resort Samui. This is the biggest resort on the island, having both extensive space and facilities. This has the most children's programmes and facilities on the beach, and is indeed family friendly.
.
Banana Sea Fan offers traditional Thai garden cottages in lush beach gardens and a family friendly atmosphere. Tradewinds Cottages are a budget alternative with bungalows in lush gardens. This is overseen by a retired British expat, a well-known sailing guru who runs beach catamarans in front. Not surprisingly, this is the unofficial sailing centre on Samui.
