Ko Samui is a part of a group of islands called Muu Ko Samui (Samui Archipelago). Thailand's third-largest island with 247 kmĀ² is surrounded by 80 smaller islands. Samui is located 20 km from the main coast of Thailand.

A quarter of the island is flat and mostly you will find coconut plantations and rice paddies.

The center of the island is hilly, covered with wild forest and gardens with fruits like Durian, Rambutan, Langsat and Mangosteen.
The population of Ko Samui is mostly concentrated in the seaport Na Thon on the western side of the island facing the mainland.

The island has had a somewhat legendary status among Asian travelers for the past 20 years, so you can find everything like first class bars, discos and restaurants, but also lonely dream beaches with white sand and palms, amazing coral reefs and waterfalls.

The best time to visit the island for sailing is from June to September.

Ko Samui is a paradise and you can make a lot of beautiful trips, such as sailing into An Thong National park.

There are no accommodations in the park and it is not allowed to camp there. So anchoring between the beautiful islands with nature's silence around is the only way to stay overnight.

From there we can sail to Ko Tao. The sea around this island is well known for crystal clear water and excellent diving sites.

On the way back from Ko Tao you pass Ko Pangan. There are beautiful bays with sandy beaches where you can stay overnight after a sailing day, having barbecue and campfire on an empty beach.

For guests who want to have some more action at night, we recommend Had Rin Beach. Music bars open up till late. At full moon the famous full-moon-party takes place there.

Another stop will be a beautiful waterfall with a small beach. Here you can take a cool swim or climb the waterfall (not too difficult ), follow the river into jungle and take a bath in the natural pools with a beautiful view down to the boat on the sea.

From Ko Pangan you can sail to Ko Samui and have lunch at Hin Yai and Hin Ta, those very popular male and female rocks (it is really an unbelievable site created by nature!), which is a must for every Samui visitor.
Back to Chaweng Beach you have the choice of well-developed beaches, restaurants for everybody's taste as well as discotheques and beer-bars.

Ko Samui is available only for charters with a minimum of 7 days.


Weather

The sailing season in Ko Samui starts in June with the south-west-monsoon-winds and delivers good sailing conditions.
This season ends in September.
Ko Samui benefits from the mountainous terrain of the Malay peninsula in the south-west of the Samui-archipelago. The mountains prevent the winds from transporting rain clouds to Ko Samui and leave the area in sun and calm waters with a steady breeze.
Weather conditions remain tropical with temperature from 30 degrees at day and 25 degrees at night.
The wind ranges from 15 to 25 Knots and conditions remain dry, there is a chance of scattered squalls.
