Bophut stands out as the only village on Samui that exudes authentic island charm. It consists of a single street lined with traditional shop-houses, many of which have been converted into restaurants, sales shops and guesthouses.
Bophut is really two places: Bophut Beach, which sweeps along several kilometres between Big Buddha and Maenam beaches, and perhaps one of the oldest places on the island, the charming Fisherman’s Village that inherits the middle section of the beach.
The distinct designs of the beachside dining sector, as well as the chosen cuisine that is available, have created an exceptional Mediterranean atmosphere within this quaint village.
Bophut is expanding constantly, generating new wining and dining options every year. Despite its growth, the essential seaside appeal remains, making it one of the island’s most attractive locations. From your Coconut Beach oasis, this location is a 20 minute excursion not to be forgotten.
