Coral Cove Beach, Koh Samui Overview

Coral Cove Beach is a beautiful beach in southern Koh Samui with reddish sand and clear, deep waters for the ideal day of swimming and relaxation. Approximately 200 metres (650 feet) in length unlike its larger neighbours, the beach lives up to its name which means ‘bay with corals’. On either end of Coral Cove Beach are rock formations that cordon it off from other beaches.

It is the ideal location for travellers who like their privacy. With only two accommodation options, the Coral Cove beach is a quiet spot for families and couples who would like their own space. But for those who’d like to enjoy the nightlife, Chaweng Beach’s bars are just ten minutes away.

Things to Do at Coral Cove Beach

The greatest appeal of Coral Cove Beach lies in its secluded environment. It sees fewer crowds than larger beaches like Chaweng Beach or Lamai Beach, making this place ideal for families and couples. At 200 metres in length with gorgeous soft, red sand, it’s the perfect beach to enjoy long walks with loved ones.

Swimming: The waters are clean and warm like the rest of Koh Samui. Just 10 metres (30 feet) from the shore are deep waters ideal for confident swimmers. Families with children should keep an eye out as the depth might be too much for kids.

Snorkelling: The clear waters are perfect for snorkelling where one gets to see coral and schools of tropical fish along Coral Cove Beach’s coast. The rock formations on each end are also great for open air rock climbing.


When you’re in the water, be wary of jellyfish as they have been sighted around Coral Cove Beach. It is not a pleasant experience to be stung by a jellyfish.
