Coral Cove means Coral Cove. Its length is only 176 meters, including huge boulders that hide a small patch of sand from the main beach. All 176 meters of shore 25 meters wide, covered with coarse reddish sand with splashes coral wreckage. The area behind the boulders is covered with even larger sand, which is unpleasant to walk barefoot, and at noon the sun even hurts.
The sand is loose, like on Maenam, which makes it difficult to walk and contributes to your stability on a steep bank at the entrance to water
Due to its size and lack of infrastructure, Coral Cove is one of the most clean and well-kept beaches of Samui. Does not spoil its even the presence of a small bed of the stream, which almost dries up in in the heat of the wet season, when it rains in the wet season drainage system. In case anyone is interested in reading about others places, I have a quick overview of all the beaches of Samui, will help you decide on the choice of the beach.
Entry, depth and waves
The water off the coast of the Coral Bay without silt and marine debris is very clean. The depth to the Coral Cove does not keep you waiting, therefore with the naked eye you can not make out what is there at the bottom. Coast quickly goes under water, and his legs are off the bottom already in three steps from the beach.
With children on this beach is not easy to relax, and their water is better some do not let go. Due to the deep water, Coral Cove does not change during low tide, but subject to high waves, especially in windy and stormy weather.
Sun beds and shade
Sun beds are available at nearby hotels, but are intended only for guests of the institution. Having a lot of natural shade from palm trees and rocks provides a comfortable rest savage. The bulk people arrive here on motorbikes, with one towel in the trunk.
Coral Cove is located 3 km from Chaweng, and 4 km from Lamai. There and are closest to the beach attributes of civilization. Hypermarket Tesco Lotus on Lamai stands 5 km from Coral Cove, and the Big Three Chaweng hypermarkets – 8 km, it is about 15-20 minutes drive to car traffic jams Chaweng. Sightseeing, five minute Accessibility from Coral Cove Beach:
- Elephant Rock – a rock hanging over the Ring Road in one from sharp turns towards Lamai;
- several viewing platforms.
There is a volleyball net on the beach and there is one small Thai restaurant. If you turn right after going to the beach, go through boulders and a separate patch of beach with coarse sand, then resist in the pile of stones. Immediately behind them hidden an inaccessible little beach on which rarely one appears – nudists on note
Houses and hotels on the beach
Coral Cove is 50 meters from the Ring Road. Of this the distance was enough to supply only one hotel – Coral Cove Resort , который разделен на два типа построек: резорт иchalets, they vary in comfort and price. Another the side of the road begins the side of the mountain, and somewhere up there there are three more resorts, but private houses in the area not.
The nearest accommodation for rent you will find only on Lamai. If you want to book here in advance or search for accommodation in others beaches, I have a selection of hotels on Samui with a good rating and reviews.
