Gay men can be spotted anywhere on Koh Samet, but Ao Tubtim is especially popular with gay visitors (both Thai and ‘farang’), many of whom stay at Tubtim Resort, one of oldest resorts on the island.
The foreigner-friendly resort has a highly recommended, open-air restaurant that is also a gay-favourite hangout. Located next to Ao Phai, Tubtim Beach is a bit quieter and has a small, secluded beach area. Besides sunbathing and swimming, gay beach volleyball games take place here in the late afternoon/evening.
At weekends and long holidays, the beach is extra busy with gay cruising/outdoor action after dark.

Very cosy beach
“We have been there at daytime only - no crowded, no expensive, comfortable and clean enough, not many gays but you can enjoy relax atmosphere and nice people without tons of tourists.“
