Laem Sai, Ko Yao Noi

Laem Sai on Ko Yao Noi is celebrated for its natural beauty, with a pristine shoreline, sandy beach, and stunning views of the surrounding bay and limestone karsts. It’s a peaceful and tranquil spot, perfect for relaxing and taking in the picturesque scenery.

We think Laem Sai, located in the southeast, is a great beach on Ko Yao Noi, featuring a golden beach with coarse sand. It has a wonderful, bizarre atmosphere due to the view of the rock formations and the large tidal range makes it a great place to stay. Another advantage is that the bay is secluded from the main road, while at many other beaches on the island the road runs close to the beach.

However, it is not the best place for swimmers. At low tide you have to take a long walk before you can swim. At high tide most of the beach disappears.

On this beach there are 3 places to stay. Koyao Bay Pavilion and The Simple are the higher range options. Please note that only the beach bungalows of Koyao Bay Pavilions are located directly near the beach. The other bungalows are a 3-minute walk away and have a private pool.

Koh Yao New Garden is the most inexpensive stay you can book on this beach with wooden bungalows for 600-800 baht and only a 5-minute walk from the beach. The stays have restaurants, although a 5-minute drive to the main road will take you to other places to eat.
