Jet skis can be hired on many of the larger beaches. If you wish, the villa manageress can arrange jet skis to be left for you on your private beach throughout your holiday so you always have access to this fun way of exploring.
The surrounding areas of Koh Samui are well known to be one of Asia's best diving sites. Snorkellers can accompany their diving companions on scuba dive trips, take a tour organised for snorkellers, a trip arranged by local fishermen to one of the many surrounding islands or just snorkel from the beaches and rock formations dotted around the Island.
Sailing is popular in Samui being led by the success of the Ko Samui Regatta which is held in early June and the continued popularity of the day cruises and sunset cruises aboard the 52 foot sailing catamaran Kia Ora.
The major hindrance to sailing in Ko Samui is the lack of a marina to provide safe mooring, the support infrastructure and services.
There have been many rumors about marina construction being imminent but nothing has yet been done. So when you get to Samui, expect to find it hard to locate a suitable provider and also expect to either clamber over rickety wooden jetties or be ferried out on the tender dinghy.
Water skiing equipment, a boat and driver is available to rent on many of the larger beaches or can be arranged to come to the private villa beach.
You can also try the fascinating sport of Kite boarding (or Kite surfing) at Samui Orchid Resort (Ban Harn Beach close to Hua Thanon) and Shamballa resort (Big Buddha beach in the North of Samui) Parasailing can be done on the beaches of Lamai and Chaweng
