Ao Phai Beach, also known as Ao Pai, is located about 1 km south of Sai Kaew and is just like many other beaches on Koh Samet very beautiful. The atmosphere reminds Khao San road in Bangkok. The beach being continuation os Sai Kaew is separated from it by low, rocky cape. Snow-white soft sand, turquoise waters and a line of beach restaurants and bars with fiery shows by night - it's all here in Ao Phai beach. The beach provides a cozy impression with all the small rocks and lush green trees in the shoreline, which provides much needed shade. Ao Phai also attract younger tourists and backpackers, and many of the beach bars have activities, artists, performances and party atmosphere in the evenings. You may say that Ao Phai is the beach in Koh Samet, which has the most "fellow-feeling" even if it never becomes extremely loudly or crowded. A nightlife, however, more low down, than Sai Kaew beach. The low tables covered by candles and the convenient pillows accurately placed along the beach, right on the sand - ideal spot to enjoy at tropical night.
The food is more affordable than at Sai Kaew and canteens and accommodation somewhat easier. When it's full moon is also a simpler form of the "fullmoon party" on the beach organized by some of the beach bars. But Ao Phai also attracts many thais, both locals and thais on vacation, to take part in the festivities and stay at a few of the hotel's bungalows. Ao Phai also have 2 smaller minimarts (similar to the 7-eleven), where you can shop for food and other useful tools. Tips!
