The island of Koh Samui in Thailand is blessed with idyllic beaches each with something different to experience. Bophut Beach is one such heavenly stretch of shore you should look to visit.
Bophut Beach can be found on the island’s northern coast near the Fisherman’s Village area. Home to Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort, this idyllic beach is also easily accessible from Chaweng which is around a 30-minute drive away.
Paradise by the Sea
A heavenly coastal escape awaits at Bophut Beach where you will find a 3 km long stretch of white sand nestled in between palm trees and azure waters. Nearby you will find restaurants, bars and even massage salas. As you can guess, staying at Koh Samui resorts beside this shoreline is a popular choice!
Fun Water Sports
For those looking to experience some thrills in the water, there are plenty of activities too. Jet skiing, stand-up paddleboarding, banana boat rides, kayaking and windsurfing are all on offer, as is the relatively new water sport craze of flyboarding.
When the Sun Goes Down
After a fun-filled day at Bophut Beach, you can walk to the nearby Fisherman’s Village where you can enjoy laid-back dining and drinks with friends or family. There is also a special Walking Street home to various shops selling souvenirs, clothing and more.
