Located eastwards past the airport turnoff is Choeng Mon. Choeng Mon is made up of a series of bays featuring white sandy beaches. Although only about 15 minutes north of Chaweng and 5 minutes from Big Buddha, the intervening coastline has kept the beaches quiet and the waters clean.Choeng Mon Beach is a small but magnificent bay. It features wide sandy beaches with a rock formation on one side and a small island you can paddle out to on the other. It’s is very family-friendly area, and being dominated by a handful of relatively upmarket resorts. Inexpensive accommodation is virtually non-existent.Despite its proximity to the other beaches, Choeng Mon is not very accessible as songthaews do not pass by very frequently. If you do not wish to spend cash on cab fare, hire a car or motorbike for the duration of your stay.
Swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, and relaxing are the main activities.Cheong Mon is known for its water sports activities. If you want to try one, you can kayak all the way to the islet of Ko Fan Noi which sits offshore Cheong Mon. During low tide, you may walk to Ko Fan Noi since it is in close proximity to the main beach. But if you feel like doing nothing, beaches at Cheong Mon are perfect for lazing the afternoons away since there is not a lot going on outside the resorts. It is preferred by tourists who want to avoid the hubbub of most beaches on Ko Samui.
