Phrao Bay is a very quiet, peaceful bay on Koh Samet island with a lovely stretch of soft white sandy beach.
Phrao Bay is 3 kilometers from Sai Kaew Beach or around 3.5 Km from the Samed Port ferry pier where the public boats drop you onto Koh Samet.
At Phrao Bay there is only the 1 road in and out so there is no through traffic. Even motorbikes have to park 500 meters up the road and you walk into the bay.
There are only a few high end beach resorts with swimming pools at Phrao Bay, a perfect place for a family holiday.
There are plenty of taxi trucks coming to Phrao Bay so easy to get to and easy to get out off to explore the island and visit some of the other beaches and bays.
The beach resorts have some nice restaurants at the front of the resorts so even if you are not staying at Phrao Bay, it is a lovely place to come visit, have some lunch and enjoy the calm waters.
You do get a few speedboats and jet skiies in Phrao Bay but not like the traffic jam of boats and constant noise at Sai Kaew Beach.
There are roped off sections in the bay so it is safe to swim.
