Welcome to Mae Nam & the North Coast
Mae Nam's slim length of white sand slopes down to a calm and swimmable aqua sea. One of the island's prettiest stretches of beach, it's popular with families and older couples, giving it an unhurried yet still vibrant ambience – perfect for reading under the shade of a coconut tree, sleeping or indulging in beach massages. Bang Po Beach, just around the tiny peninsula, is even quieter.
The town is a charmer too, with all the rhythms of Thai life, from bustling school children, to busy locals shopping in the market and restaurateurs throwing open the doors of their eateries.
