Explore Lipa Noi in Koh Samui

Our Lipa Noi Travel guide looks to describe some of the reasons why this part of Koh Samui remains so popular. 

Lipa Noi is located on Koh Samui's west coast and is known for being a laid back part of the island. Away from all the commercial buzz of the east coast, it is a peaceful sanctuary with pristine white shores and shallow blue waters creating the perfect getaway for couples and families with younger children.

Lipa Noi is close to the main car ferry port for travellers driving from mainland Thailand but despite this, it has managed to maintain a quiet and calm atmosphere. Though considered a relatively remote part of the island when compared to the activity of more popular Koh Samui spots like Chaweng. Lipa Noi is not short on holiday offerings, although they are smaller and more personal than the east coast facilities. Pictures of Lipa Noi's beaches are often used on Koh Samui travel brochures due to the unmatched scenery of this area. Its appeal lies in the tranquil atmosphere rather than sporting activities and nightlife. The beaches are the main attraction and the white sandy shores are free from rocks and coral and the shallow clear blue waters extend for up to 100m out to sea, making them particularly child friendly. Coupled with stunning sunsets due to its location on the west coast, it is everything you would expect from a tropical island paradise.

There may be little in the way of entertainment but what activities there are, are more family orientated and this is evident in the tourist demographic. Quaint restaurants with traditional Thai dances and acrobatics, a holistic health spa and a tourist orientated animal farm with entertainment facilities are typical of activities on offer in Lipa Noi. Shopping is limited but due to its close proximity to Nathon, the administrative centre of Koh Samui, you are not totally cut off from evening entertainment and retail therapy.

Beach villas with stunning views are the popular choice for tourist accommodation in Lipa Noi. With picture perfect beaches and a natural tropical beauty, the area is everything you would expect in an island paradise, however with a drive to busy Chaweng taking just 40 minutes, you are not too far from the rest of the island.

We hope that our Lipa Noi travel guide has given you a good overview of the true splendour that this part of Koh Samui has to offer. Take a look at some of the villas available in this area below or contact us for more information.
