Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I walked for kilometers in either direction on empty beach. Restaurants dotted the beach along the way. It was a refreshing change from the noise and throng of people on Samui. If you're into nightlife or bars, Khanom beach is not for you. Everyone I met in Khanom, along the beach and in the restaurants, was friendly and engaging. I will go back.

This beach is so quiet, in fact it was silent. I went swimming it is very clean and the beach was very clean.

My wife and I had a really wonderful stay at Ban Sabai Bungalows in the Nadan Beach area of Kanom, Nakhon Si Thammarat on the way to Koh Samui.

Owned by a Thai-French couple, both of whom speak English, the newly built (2022) four-unit resort is located along a very atmospheric bamboo shaded klong about a 5-minute drive from beautiful, long, white sand, shell covered beaches. One of the bungalows can accommodate up to 12 people.

We had a spacious, well-appointed, very comfortable air-conditioned room with a "river" view. Mean Kwan and Jean Pierre were wonderful warm-hearted and generous hosts. The included breakfast was delicious and though we could have had eggs and toast, instead we chose kao tum (rice soup with lots of delicious add-ins) and kanom ton (a distinctive custard-like coconut-filled sweet steamed in a banana leaf) which were served with fresh orange juice and many fruits. The property has a wide variety of beautiful plants, many of which Mean Kwan has grown and uses to decorate the rooms. She also makes a special herbal tea that, after cooling in the small room fridge, was great to come home to after a hot day and sip while sitting along the klong, or even while poling down down it for a short way on the bamboo/oil drum rafts the resort provides for free. Motorbikes for rent are also available. The surrounding area itself is cool and shady and has many tall coconut tree plantations where you might be able to see macaque monkeys doing the harvesting.

Since before coming to Ban Sabai we'd spent a week at a beach front place and needed a break from beach and sea time we were glad to learn Mean Kwan was a licensed guide and (for an extra charge, of course) we did one half-day and one full-day tour with her both of which were varied, fun, interesting, and highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our time at Ban Sabai with Mean Kwan and JP and would definitely like to visit again.

Khanom Beach or Hat Khanom National Park - Mu Ko Thale Tai National Park a beautiful beach And it is a popular tourist destination of Nakhon Si Thammarat people. Here is a long sandy beach that extends into the sea with pine trees. There are beautiful corals In addition, Khanom Beach can be divided into several beaches, including Na Dan Beach, a long sandy beach that alternates with rocks. And along the Khanom coast, there will be other beaches. live in many places therefore suitable for swimming See the coral a lot.

Had 5 days of downtime with the family and was really looking forward to our beachfront place.
Khanom is the sleepy village as advertised although developers are already making there mark - things are changing.
The surprise for me was the state of the beaches- if you want to see human impact on the environment go to Khanom
I have not seen rubbish to this level anywhere else in Asia- it was awful.
We took to picking up rubbish everyday to try and alleviate the problem but it would need an army.
Really disappointing that a beautiful area has been ruined.
I really wish I could recommend Khanom but the dirty beaches were to much for us

Long stretch and largely untouched - maybe except on the weekends - the beach is a non mainstream location for nice beach and blue green waters. The sand is very fine; very comparable to that of Koh Samui's Chaweng beach. That said, the beach is not only scenic but also feels away from it all. Not a wonder this place is dubbed a hidden gem, although I feel it won't be for long given its rise in popularity amongst the Thais and seasoned foreigner living in Thailand altogether.

A lovely wide open beach which is great for relaxing and swimming, my partner and myself were at the beach on the 27th July 2020, the ocean has the blue and green of the water which adds to the relaxing surroundings.

There are restaurants and shops so no shortage of sea food and other food, great for children needs, also there is a hotel next to the beach.

The beach is a short drive from the city and very popular on weekends and holidays, when we were there it was packed with people, the hotel told us you need to book ahead to ensure accommodation.

Khanom is truly a gem. A secret beach feel as there are hardly any one there. Gorgeous sunrises. Amazing sea shells to be found. Wonderful restaurants along the beach. A must visit location

Khanum is beautiful and looks like not many people know about it, mostly we met locals and to be honest it was very nice to be away from the hassle and bustle
