Mae Nam is a district in Ko Samui, Thailand.


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.

Get in

A songthaew from Chaweng (50 to 100 baht) or Nathon (50 baht) is the cheapest option. Easy to find as the busy ring road stretches through Mae Nam.

Get around

Songthaew or hired motorbikes are the usual options.


The sunset from the east end of the beaches are exceptionally pretty.


Chill out on the beach, there's a nearby karting on the main road towards Bophut.


There's a couple of market-shops near the 7-11 in the centre.



There's a few relaxed beach bars with reclining beach beds. For nightlife head on to Chaweng.


There is usually a gentle breeze in Mae Nam so air con is not essential.
