The little-visited stretch of flat, soft sand at Laem Set stretches around three kilometres from the traditional fishing village of Hua Thanon to the sheltered, rocky bays of the Laem Set peninsular. Fishermen moor and unload their catch daily close to the village market, providing excellent photo opportunities, not to mention a great source of fresh seafood. This is also the island's only remaining Muslim enclave, where the mosque is still the centre of the community. The peninsular itself boasts some of the island's quietest beaches and coves. A handful of small resorts and
restaurants are scattered around the local area. Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary is also located here, an internationally renowned centre for alternative therapies and treatments. For more sophisticated shopping or nightlife options, Lamai is the nearest tourist town (5km) and the road that leads to it is lined with restaurants and resorts offering everything from Thai staples to fine international cuisine.
