Koh Samet Holidays

Beautiful blissful beaches

An ideal island for those who love fishing and beautiful, tranquil beaches. Koh Samet is a small island within a national park and some of the most beautiful shores in Thailand.

Here you will find soft white sandy beaches, beach bars and restaurants and a relaxed vibe on this beautiful unspoilt island. Visit the southern part of the island, Ao Karang, to experience traditional life with local residents, sit on the sand while having dinner and watch the locals perform fire shows in the evening. The sunset from the dramatic cliff side locations along the southwest coastline are a sight not to be missed.

Bangkok is the perfect city to combine with a visit to Koh Samet, just a few hours away by car, or Pattaya is just two hours away if you're looking for something a little busier before or after your island adventure.
