Mae Nam is a quiet beach, located in the north of the island is decent enough for swimming and sunbathing especially for families with children due to the shallow water.

Mae Nam is known for it's 7km stretch of beach. The beach has white sand and is lined by coconut trees. The sea is typically calm, however there is a moderate drift and the water is not usually clear. Mae Nam actually means river, 'mae' meaning mother and 'nam' water.

People come to Mae Nam to chill out on the beach. There's also a nearby karting on the main road towards Bophut. The sunset from the east end of the beaches are exceptionally pretty.

There's a few relaxed beach bars with reclining beach beds. For nightlife head on to Chaweng. A couple of market-shops are located near the 7-eleven in the centre.
