Eastern Mae Nam

The eastern stretch of Mae Nam Beach contains a mix of some of the prettiest stretches of the beachfront though to some rather ordinary sections backing onto retaining walls. Certainly the quietest stretch of Mae Nam, most of the resorts back onto coconut groves and there's a network of meandering dirt roads leading from one spot to another -- all far away from traffic noise on the busy main road. Lapping waves and falling coconuts are about as noisy as it gets here and the sunsets are spectacular. The very far eastern-most stretch of the beach, around the sandy point, is a popular stretch amongst those looking for an all-over tan.

Western Mae Nam

The western end of Mae Nam is less developed due to Wat Phra Lan occupying a chunk of beachfront real estate and while there's still a steady string of budget through to luxurious lodgings, this part of the beach feels quieter than other parts of Mae Nam. The sand here is granier and a bit more yellow but the swimming is excellent. The far western end is also a drop-off point for the Lomprayah ferries.
