The beach is very nice, not overcrowded with too many tourists. Its relatively quiet way better than chaweng beach- its also smaller and more cleaner. Its great for half day trip or full day

If you take away hundreds turists and a narrow beach it looks fantastic, but there is almost no space for your towel. Lots of waste in the sea does not make you feel better. Choose a another one..

Lovely beach. Only small but stayed in hotel here so was literally on our doorstep. Didn't feel the need to travel to any other beach. Cleaned every morning and drinks from bar accessible. Not sure there is a toilet nearby though

It is a really small beach but a really beautiful one between the Lamai and Chaweng. While driving by road, it is very difficult to find out the location as it is not properly marked on the milestones but just check the map once before driving. The beach is more like a private beach with its passage going through a... More

The beach is relatively small. It's more like a bat but the sand is soft and the water is pretty calm compared to lamai beach. Note that the beach is only accessible via the resorts on the beach. There's no fee to enter. You can enter from the silver beach resort and you can always support them by buying a... More

Quite a bit up-and-down from Chaweng (Noi!), and just less from Lamai, close your eyes, the images of tropical paradise beaches you see, now open your eyes, it's silver beach, you're there... Mind you, knowing the island a long time, we go elsewhere now, as it's, more recently, got too busy, even crowded sometimes, for us, when we feel the... More

A little gem of a beach (silver beach in the crystal bay), for those who want peace and quiet, away from the buzz of the main beaches on Koh Samui. Access to this beach is not strait forward, I just walked through the hotel! There are a few trees that provide a bit of shade. Swimming is great, the bay... More

Stayed nearby and walked over to Silver Beach one day at around 1 pm. You will have to quickly pass through one of the few resorts along the beach to reach it. The beach was not crowded at all (probably because it was low season), and was quiet with nice white sand and clear water. There are quite a few... More
