The location of Taling Ngam beach is on the south west corner of Koh Samui Island. A delightful calm beach in a traditional area; best known for its coconut plantations and old fishing village. The water is very shallow making it an excellent place for snorkelling. It is home to some exclusive beach resorts and there are some smaller islands surrounding the area, which are good to explore. Because of its location, the sunsets here are spectacular, well worth a watch with an ice-cold beer.
The neighbouring islands of Koh Tan and Koh Madsum are well worth a visit. Especially if you are into snorkelling or diving. They can easily be accessed by private boat charter from your resort, or a local boat from Tong Krut pier.
