talingngamTaling Ngam beach is on the west side of the island, south of the port harbouring ferries traveling between Don Sak port and Koh Samui. It is one of the most well-known beaches, and the best place to watch the sunset on Koh Samui. Koh Si and Koh Ha are located offshore, and the sun sets between the two islands, gradually disappearing from the horizon into the sea, creating a striking image. Boats may be chartered to travel to Koh Si and Koh Ha for diving or a relaxing fishing expedition.

Accommodation and Facilities

This area is home to two recommended resorts for tourists who appreciate luxury: Baan Taling Ngam Resort and Spa and Ban Sabai Sunset Beach Resort. Finding budget accommodation in this area is not easy; however, if tourists would like to view the sunset or walk to Koh Si-Koh Ha, they may opt to stay in other areas from which this beach is easily accessible.
