Attractions near the Kandaburi Resort & Spa
Waterfalls worth the walk
If you’re visiting Koh Samui during or at the end of the wet season (September through to March), be sure to take a hike into the mountains to the magnificent Hin Lad and Namuang waterfalls. Both of the walks are definitely worth the effort, because of the inviting swimming holes below the waterfalls.
The largest waterfall is Namuang 2 at approximately 80 metres tall. You might want to take along a picnic to enjoy in the shade of the rainforest after you've taken a dip in the refreshing water. Namuang 1 is the closest to a road, Hin Lad is approximately a two-kilometre walk and Namuang is a little further into the beautiful bushland.
A magical Marine Park
No trip to Koh Samui would be complete without exploring the magnificent marine park surrounding the island. Comprised of 42 islands in total, the tropical oasis that is the Ang Thong National Marine Park can take anywhere from a day to a week to explore.
The best time to visit is between March and October, when snorkelling, kayaking, swimming and scuba diving are all popular activities. You can explore tiny uninhabited islands where wildlife is abundant in the rainforests, visit local fishing villages or lay back on the pure white sands of a secluded island beach.
