Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.

Beaches
Koh Samui is known for one thing more than any other: Its beaches. There are beaches of different sizes and types surrounding most of the island. Visitors can still find some smaller places for quite chilling. For those looking for nightlight to go with their beaches the two most popular are:

Chaweng Beach. The is the major beach on Ko Samui. Once home to just a sprinkle of wooden bungalows it is now filled with hotels, Italian pizzerias, Irish pubs, and even go-go bars. It is the center of Samui’s nightlife scene.

Lamai Beach. Like Chaweng, Lamai has been transformed from a low-key hangout spot into a party place packed out with bars and nightlife. It is somewhat less crowded as Chaweng.
Diving
Most diving is done either in the nearby Ang Thong National Marine Park or around Ko Tao, a neighboring island. The dive boats tend to leave from the pier at Bophut and Bang Ruk.
Snorkeling
A few beaches, especially on the eastern side, have coral fringes, making for good warm-water snorkling. Masks and other equipment is a available for rental.
