Bo Phut beach is about three kilometers long and has a relatively fine-grained sand and coconut palm trees at it’s side. Here you’ll get a superb view overlooking Koh Phangan and the Gulf of Thailand.
Before the tourists began to discover Koh Samui, Bo Phut was a small fishing village and still there are some fishermen with their characteristic boats active here. But nowadays, there are not only fishing boats departing from Bo Phut. Also smaller ferries and speedboats are transporting divers and the tourists, who are going on various tours around the island.
Bo Phut is also located near the island’s airport and very close to one of the islands’ larger piers, from where ferries depart regularly to Koh Phangan and Koh Tao. In the evening, when it’s time for dinner, Bo Phut have many cozy restaurants to choose from. Here you are able to order fresh seafood, fresh fish, traditional Thai dishes or why not a juicy steak if you are more into “western cuisine”.
It is possible to rent jet skis, snorkeling gear, kayaks and other water activity gear here as well. If you’re more into the art of serious relaxation, you might just lie down and bask in the sun on the beach. Refresh yourself by ordering a drink or fruit juice from one of the restaurants or resorts along the beach.
