Lipa Noi Beach
Lipa Noi is a tranquil beach near the main town of Nathon. It is a perfect area for those who want a beach holiday with the family away from all the crowds and bars on other beaches. Nathon is the administrative head of the island and where you go to renew a visa or catch the car ferry. It is also a good place for souvenir shopping.
Lipa Noi is one of the few beaches in Koh Samui with a completely sandy seabed, free from all coral. It also doesn't get deep for nearly 100 meters out. It is thus an ideal beach for children.
There are a few good resorts and restaurants spread along the beach. Big John Seafood is recommended for anyone who likes fresh fish.
The area around Lipa Noi has a few shops and other facilities but is generally very quiet. Older people and families often choose Lipa Noi.
Lipa Noi also hosts the Samui Dharma Healing Center that follows strict Buddhist precepts and specializes in yoga, meditation and fasting.
