Tongson Bay Travel Guide
Explore Tongson Bay in Koh Samui
Our Tongson Bay Travel guide looks to describe some of the reasons why this part of Koh Samui remains so popular.
Tongson Bay is on the northern most tip of Koh Samui situated around a naturally occurring bay that steals its tropical beauty from the rest of Samui. White sandy beaches and clear blue waters with Koh Phangan visible from its coastline make for another gem on the island's stunning coastline.
Tongson Bay is one of the smaller spots in Koh Samui, therefore has the same picturesque beaches but without lots of tourists. As a growing holiday destination, with some luxury villas and the odd hotel and resort Tongson Bay offers a fair balance between the more laid-back island life of the north coast towns and tourist activity of east Koh Samui.
You will find a few quaint guesthouses owned by locals, with traditional Thai cuisine on offer in their small restaurants. If you are looking for a more exciting shopping experience or some fun after the sunsets, then head off to Chaweng for a few hours, but you will quickly appreciate the tranquillity of Tongson Bay.
Water sports facilities are readily available, but for a break from the beach, Tongson Bay is within a short driving distance of the famous Golden Big Buddha and the temple at Plai Laem. If you are keen to venture off the Koh Samui shores, then Koh Phangan, which is rapidly growing as another popular island destination in the gulf of Thailand, is a must see.
Tongson Bay may at times seem disconnected from other Koh Samui beach destinations. with life in the area focussing on catering for a smaller but significant trickle of visitors. There has been more development over recent years but the area still maintains enough small town charm to make for a perfect getaway location.
We hope that our Tongson Bay Travel Guide has done a great job in showcasing the true beauty of this beautiful area in Koh Samui. To find out more or to view some of the available luxury villas in this part of the island please select the button below.
