Sunset seekers. Here’s your next sunset spot: Taling Ngam Bay Koh Samui. Visit this bucket-list-sun-descending destination on your next visit to Thailand where the sun set is different every day.
Where is Taling Ngam Bay Koh Samui?
Located on the west coast of Samui, Taling Ngam Bay is secluded and quiet and an ideal place to watch sunset in Samui with the enchanting 5 Islands on the horizon. The pace is slower here and you can still feel and experience the real Samui.
Best sunset spots in Taling Ngam Bay
There are some luxe and chic resorts dotted among the coconut trees, which are ideal spots to watch sunset in Samui. For something super romantic and exclusive we recommend Air Bar Koh Samui. Nestled on the side of a cliff, sit in lounges facing the ocean with the most incredible panoramic views and just sip and watch as the sky lights up with vibrant reds, oranges and purples.
For something more casual and closer to the beach, visit Beach Bar @ Flames. Sink your toes in the sand, order a bucket of beers and some bar snacks before the sun sets. This is a great spot for families. The beach is quiet and secluded. The waves are small and the water is shallow, so it’s a safe place for little ones to splash and explore.
There are also a few local beach bars and restaurants in Taling Ngam Bay that are perfect places to set up for an evening of tropical cocktails, cold beers and Thai food. The Virgin Coast Restaurant is located right on the beach, has happy hour from 5:00PM – 6:30PM (the ideal sunset viewing time) paired with fresh Thai dishes. After an early evening swim head to I-Talay Beach Bar & Cottage Taling Ngam for a romantic dinner with margaritas at this Thai-style beach restaurant.
