These, the northern-most beaches on Koh Samui, are secreted away in 2 picturesque bays that few tourist visitors ever discover. Samrong Beach is at the top, with Thongson Bay separated by a headland and 400 metres below.
.
These are quiet beach hideaways not far from the frenetic nightlife of Chaweng, and other attractions like Big Buddha and Bophut Fisherman's Village. They are not, however, undiscovered by all. While there are only a few hotels here, many private villas now line the hills overlooking the beaches. Many have been built with prominent concrete walls and little greenery, detracting from the view of the once-green hills.

The sand on both Samrong Beach and Thongson Bay is quite fine and the water as clear as any on Samui. Like most beaches on Samui, the water is quite shallow, and thus swimming is only possible at high tide.

There are only five resorts here, with the northern-most one, Six Senses Hideaway, being among the top luxury spa resorts on Samui, listed in our page Koh Samui’s Top 6 super luxury beach resorts. This spectacular villa resort occupies the northern tip of Samui, with views over both Samrong Beach and the northern coast of Samui to the west. Six Senses' ocean view villas are well designed and angled to offer exceptional privacy, with none overlooking the private areas of another. They offer infinity pools with sunrise or sunset views.
.
Thongson Bay is the southern small bay and beach. Its sand, water and beach are very similar to that of its neighbour. There are two beachfront accommodations here, offering very different standards. The 4-star Melati Beach Resort has luxury villas in Thai style, set in wide tropical gardens. Cheap bungalows are available directly opposite at Thongson Bay Bungalows.
