Swimming at Ao Noi Na and Ao Klang

Suitable for:
Beach loungers

There are two beaches in the north of Koh Samet. Compared to the east coast, they are not so popular, mainly due to the proximity of the port. This is especially true for the first beach of Ao Klang. Ao Noi Beach Farther west is much better

On the way to the beach

The road to the beaches in the north starts right at the port. You climb easily and get over Sunrise Villas, which must be probably the worst accommodation on the whole island. On one side of the road and on the other a view of the harbor and the hum of boat engines. Then you will pass a few more houses stuck on the edge of the slope and you will descend to the first beach of Ao Klang

Ao Klang

In the first possible place we descend from the road to the beach. It starts with small coves, but in the end is quite a nice and wide beach. The impression is spoiled only by the nearby port and too many moored motor boats

The western half of Ao Klang beach

Ao Klang beach basically divides a large pier into two parts, where larger boats can moor. This is a photo from the second western half of the beach

The beginning of Noi Na beach

Klang beach is terminated by a small built-in protrusion, so here you have to return to the road for a while. A little further on, reconnect to the beach. You will meet some ugly piers before the beach becomes nice again

At the end of Noi Na beach

At the very end of the beach it is the most beautiful, it is also followed by nice and more expensive accommodation

It is also worth mentioning that on this side of the island the sea is very calm and there are no afternoon waves like on the east coast

The northern end of Koh Samet

After less than two kilometers walk from the port, we are basically at the very northern end of the island of Koh Samet. You can go back on your own or shared taxi, if any
