“Bophut lies 2 km of sandy beach lined with coconut palms. Although Bophut is not idyllic place for swimming as the bay is full of seaweed and algae, visitors can choose to do some sport activities with skis, kayaks and snorkeling gear renting services.”

Compared to the crowded Chaweng Beach, it is quite and peaceful at Bophut Beach. Back to the heyday, Bophut used to be the largest town on Samui Island. It once served as fishing port with a harbor. The remaining of authentic Samui village with Chinese shop houses still boasts its glorious past.

This place is know as the Fishermans Village, this spot is popular due to its natural beauty and the calmenss of the sea, you can do lots of sport activities along the bayside such as kayakking, beach volleyball, and some relaxation escaping from the crowded place.  

Bophut is just 15 minutes away from the airport by bus or taxi. Many ferries from Ko Pha Ngan and Ko Tao dock at the small pier in eastern Bophut.
