Spend two hours on your own at Chaweng Beach, Ko Samui's most popular beach located on the island's unspoiled east coast. Your approximately 45- to 50-minute drive to Chaweng Beach travels across a landscape of lush paddies, small villages and coconut plantations. Chaweng Beach is four miles of powdery white sand and aquamarine water. Relax and choose your own activities at your own pace for your half-day on your own. Sunbathe, snorkel, shop, people-watch or eat. The central section of the beach boasts restaurants, cafes and bars for you to explore on your own. There are plenty of street hawkers selling everything from cheap sunglasses to watches and leather bags and purses. If you're interested in local handicrafts or clothes shopping, retail stores and trendy shops are also plentiful. At the agreed upon time, meet your transportation for the return trip back to your cruise ship.
Don’t forget your camera!
