But the Northern part of the beach is very quiet. In this part there is a least number of vacationers And to find all noisy entertainment you have to walk at least a kilometer along the shore. There are also many stones of bizarre shape, which form a picturesque cozy coves. The sea is shallow and has pronounced tides.
The southern part of Lamai beach conventionally begins near the picturesque stones in front of the Bill Resort, and ends near the stones of Grandparents. The sea is almost immediately deep, but in there are stones, sometimes huge. And be careful – there are sea urchins!
Swimming and sunbathing on Lamai beach
Entering the water in the Central section of Lamai is ideal. This is the best sandy entrance to the sea on the island. By the way, the width of the beach is 40 meters, which are open to the sun throughout the Central part of Lamai.
In front of each hotel there are sun loungers and parasols, which can be borrowed for rent. So, trees grow very rarely, at the very edge of the shore, where the sand ends and the grass begins. In Central Lamai there is no source of natural shade closer than 30 meters from the water.
