Taling Ngam Beach

Taling Ngam is a long stretch of white sand beach between Lipa Noi and Thong Tanote on the west coast of Koh Samui. It is a good beach for a holiday as the water is clean and suitable for swimming. The area is very picturesque as it is surrounded by jungle. There is a small fishing village and a few good local seafood restaurants on the beach.

One of the great points about Taling Ngam is that it is a west facing beach. As a result there is a beautiful sunset every night to enjoy. In the distance several of the Angthong National Park islands can be seen which futher adds charm to the view from Taling Ngam beach. As you can see from the picture above, Taling Ngam has a romantic quality that is hard to beat when the sun goes down.

Taling Ngam is one of the least developed parts of Koh Samui. There are a few budget bungalow set-ups and a few mid-range resorts to choose from. You won't find much of a nightlife in Taling Ngam.

The tour is rated as the second best activity in Koh Samui according the Lonely Planet.
