Add a Point to the Map

Choeng Mon is located on the north coast of Ko Samui, between Chaweng and Mae Nam.

Located eastwards past the airport turnoff is Choeng Mon. Choeng Mon is made up of a series of bays featuring white sandy beaches. Although only about 15 minutes north of Chaweng and 5 minutes from Big Buddha, the intervening coastline has kept the beaches quiet and the waters clean.

Choeng Mon beach is a small but magnificent bay, it features wide sandy beaches with a rock formation on one side and a small island you can paddle out to on the other.

It's is very family friendly area, and being dominated by a handful of three to five star resorts, relatively upmarket; inexpensive accommodation is virtually non-existent. The nearest shopping districts are at Chaweng and Mae Nam.

Food is not hard to come by at Cheong Mon since there are a number of restaurants off the beaches. But don’t expect anything authentic or Thai cuisines because the restaurants offer food and entertainment with Western standards.

There are a number of quaint restaurants and cafés throughout the area. The beach itself has many restaurants and offers a beautiful night view over the bay; it doesn't usually get to busy but has music, cocktails and reclining beach beds.

The resorts attract more of the foreign clientel, a fact which is reflected in the food and entertainment offered in the resort's restaurants. Thus the Thai cuisine served won't be too spicy. However, do expect traditional Thai dancing and numerous Filipino bands expertly playing covers of Western pop standards.

Despite its proximity to the other beaches, Choeng Mon is not very accessible since the songthaews pass by very frequently. If you do not wish to spend so much cash on cab fare, it is advisable to hire a car or motorbike for the duration of your stay.
