Maenam is a quiet stretch of coast in the north of Samui that's popular with backpackers and budget travelers. Perhaps it's the excellent views of Koh Phangan that have kept Maenam as Samui's last predominantly backpacker beach. Or maybe it's the fact that many of its resorts are located at the end of long rambling pathways, affording a degree of privacy unavailable elsewhere.

    Either way, Maenam is still the place to be while away for a few weeks on a low budget, staying in one of the many great value bungalows that are dotted along the beach. At the other end of the scale, Maenam also has a few dependable 5-star luxury resorts for those who want a relaxed stay with excellent facilities.
