Samae Beach is one of the nicest beaches on Koh Larn. It is only a small beach and is one of the only beaches on Koh Larn that has accommodation right next to the beach.
If you want to stay on Koh Larn for a night or two then I highly recommend Samae beach. It does get busy during the day with many people coming for a day trip. There are ferry trips from Pattaya port which drop you off at the jetty at Samae Beach.
While busy during the day, by around 5pm most of the day trippers get back on their boat and Samae Beach becomes a very peaceful place to stay. There are only a few restaurants that stay open at night time, the best to eat at is the restaurant at the Xanadu Beach Resort. The restaurant is right next to the beach and jetty and is the perfect place to sit back and enjoy the sunset.
From Pattaya Port you can get a round trip ferry ride direct to Samae Beach for 180 Baht. Or you can get the public ferry for 30 Baht to Na Baan Pier on Koh Larn. From Na Baan Pier you can then hop on the back of a motorbike taxi for 50 Baht and the trip to Samae Beach will take under 15 minutes.
There is a good selection of hotels on Koh Samet to suit all budgets. With loads of quality beach resorts and other budget / backpacker style accommodation.
