Koh Samui is an Island situated in the Gulf of Thailand about 700km South of Bangkok. Koh Samui is a beautiful island blessed with many beautiful beaches. The island is about 25 km long and 20 km wide and you can drive around the whole island in a couple of hours.
While you can stay on a Koh Samui beach without transport, it is best to have your own wheels as taxis are very expensive and having a car means you have the freedom to explore the many beautiful beaches on the island. We enjoyed having a vehicle when in Samui as we could go to a different beach everyday.
We visited many different beaches during our two week stay on the island and here is a list of the most family friendly ones.
