Sleeping

The central, powdery white area of Hat Lamai is packed with sunburned souls lounging on beach chairs, but head to the grainier northern or southern extremities and things get much quieter. Ban Lamai runs back from the main beach area. Unlike Hat Chaweng, the main party in Lamai takes place off the beach, so the sand here is generally free of a dance-beat soundtrack and accommodation is more tranquil.
