Beach description

Ban Tai stretches for one kilometer from Bang Po to Maenam. From the only road that leads to it and to the dead end of this road near the colorful houses of the coastal resort it is covered amazingly fine, white sand with shells.

The cleanliness of the beach is maintained opposite the residential complexes and restaurant Mimosa, whose name is sometimes called this part of the beach. But there are some areas of wasteland, which unfolds construction and the beach in front of these sites remains untouched. From the sea garbage, as a rule, quite a bit, unlike garbage human, left after picnics and rest.

During the high season, thanks to its popularity of children’s a beach, a large number of kids with their parents come to Mimosa, and in the colorful houses and bungalows of the neighboring resort is always a lot moms and kids.

Ban Tai Beach itself is still divided into two distinct friends from friend half. If you look at the sea at the place where you dug the canal for boats, the right half is covered with stones and boulders, and the beach there, to put it mildly – for walking. But the left half, which runs along the Thai cafe, resort and restaurant Mimosa – sandy and crowded.

In case anyone is interested in reading about other places, I have There is a brief overview of all the beaches of Samui, will help you decide in choosing a beach.

Entry, depth and waves

With the ebb of the sea goes to 10-12 meters from the shore, but cardinal nothing happens. The depth at Ban Tae is balanced between the fine and normal state. An adult needs walk about thirty meters to be in the water to the waist and children such a slope of the coast at the very time.

Judging by the fact that in some places the shore is reinforced with concrete rings, and by how much the soil is washed up between the palm trees on the shore, the waves Ban Tai Tai is rattling well. But in calm, windless days of strong excitement on the beach is not observed.

Entry into the water is complicated by the presence of underwater vegetation and stones, but there is a whole lot on Ban Tae, with a completely clean sandy bottom, which is used by all local residents. Those who not in the know about the secret – can stop half way finding a good tree with a shadow and basking carefully looking at yourself under the feet.

Sun beds and shade

Sun beds on the beach there is only at the very end, where the beach expands to forty meters and forms a sandy platform, just opposite the clean entrance to the water where the main party

But there is nothing perfect. Along the whole beach, everywhere except palm trees and deciduous trees grow on some hammocks and swings are suspended. And on the site will have to either ignore the sun, or carry a beach umbrella.

The entire infrastructure of the area around Ban Tao is dispersed throughout secondary streets and roadsides of the ring road. Immediately on turning from the ring there is a 7-Eleven mini-market, laundry, watermat and rental motorbikes. Thai shops are on the way to the sea. Before the nearest hypermarkets will have to take a car and drive around forty minutes, provided that there are no traffic jams that have become frequent a phenomenon on samui lately.

Palm trees stand on the shore of the restaurant next to Mimosa. sheds right in the water. There is also a bent palm tree with a sign “This – Koh Samui, for a photo as a keepsake. More sights on Ban Tae no.

How to find the beach

Since the road to the beach is one, you have to be careful when seeking congress to the sea. Driving on the ring road, look out a brown sign with the name of the restaurant Mimosa, which hangs strictly opposite the secondary road. Just in case she marked with a blue poster “This is a way to the public beach”.

After the exit on the secondary road, do not turn off anywhere, until you are rested in the sea and massage tents. Turn left and Drive to the next restaurant after Mimosa. Be sure to find parking that will not interfere with travel. The fact is that the road along the sea is bounded by barbed wire and “Do not enter privat property “.

And the width of the road does not allow two cars to disperse. And if you leave the bike along the thorn or in the parking lot of Mimosa, you risk detect the cut seat of a motorbike upon return. Were precedents, this is not a joke.




But there are more options to get to Ban Tai. For lovers walk through the jungle and underground tunnels telling secret place on the island. Turn off the ring road where on the map is marked with a marker, and then go straight until you are rested in goal.

This is a private territory of a house under construction, but the construction is frozen, and no one will stop you. Go around the gate on the right along the path, and after a hundred meters you will see a T-shaped intersection of dirt roads. Further, as in a fairy tale: if you go to the right, you will climb the mountain.

If you go to the left, you will enter the tunnel. The tunnel is long, one hundred meters, passes inside the rock and leads to the secret beach, which with Mimosa is not visible, but at high tide access is closed by sea The beach will be littered with stones, between which you can find yourself place, or walk on foot to Mimosa about two hundred meters to the right.

The best place for sunbathing – not reaching the sandy area fall under a tree in the shadow indicated by a marker on the map below. There are never people here, and if there are, the third family under the tree is just not fit. And you can swim with algae, although, of course, sensations are strange.
