Bo Phut Beach - convenient for living and recreation

Bo Phut Beach on the north side of Koh Samui is a mixture of family and beautiful Maenama and lively, crowded, noisy Chaweng. Three kilometers of slightly arcing beach located between the possessions of W-Retreat Koh Samui

in the west and an uninhabited cape in the east, at the base of which is the Orgazmic bar.

Beach description

In the middle of Bo Phuta is the Fisherman Village.(Fisherman Village) - Fisherman's Village, which is also a wharf for fishermen, a local landmark, a night market and the Walking Street Bo Phut. The whole beach can be visually divided into two halves: western from W-Retreat Koh Samui

to Fisherman and east, from Fisherman to Orgasmik. The western part is more lively, with a mass of hotels along the coastline.

The eastern part is spoiled by the mouth of the river-skunk andshallow water. The sand on the beach is fine, light yellow, lighter than on Maenam. In shallow water, the sand turns red, fragments of coral and a scattering of stones are added. Cleanliness is maintained in the western part, as there is a continuous line of hotels along the coast, and in the east no one is involved in the beach.

There is a lot of trash, both natural andhuman origin. The blue pipes of the spillway, which stick out from under the houses of Fisherman Village and in some places poison the water (I hope that it is water) right on the sand, are especially upsetting.

The beach is very popular, and in peaks of the season there is noalways feel comfortable. It happens that people lie away from you at arm's length. In the west, shallow water does its job, people come to sit on the beach or dine in restaurants overlooking the sea. In case anyone is interested in reading about other places, I have a short overview of all the beaches of Samui, will help you decide on the choice of the beach.

Sunset, depth and waves

There are few deep beaches on Samui. Bo Phut is distinguished by deep water, so it is popular among people who do not want to get into the crowd Chawengbut also excessive calm Maenama also not satisfied.

Bo Phut, on the west side, does not suffer fromebbs, here you can always swim and sunbathe like a human being. Depth to two meters becomes already in 10-15 m from the coast. The eastern part of Bo Bhuta with ebb tides becomes unsightly, somewhat resembles Tong Plu, which is also located on the north coast of Samui.

Sun beds and shade

The entire western part of Bo Phut is teeming with beachequipment. Sun loungers, beach umbrellas, tables - everything. Not everywhere these things offer to rent, but no one prohibits a walk to look. Sources of natural shade on Bo Phut are mostly palm trees that grow in abundance along the coast. Not Maenam, with its palm groves, but still good shelter from the sun for the kids.

Infrastructure

Like on Maename, life on Bo Phut dies down with the onsetof darkness. Most of the establishments and shops are closed, only cafes, restaurants and shopping malls operate. Lovers walk before bedtime and chatting with other fans of evening exercise helps the proximity Fisherman Village.

In the evening he does not sleep, offering a walking souvenirproducts, clothing, a huge selection of international cuisine. One of the best Indian restaurants is located on Fisherman, and on Fridays there are Night Fairs that gather crowds of people.

Bo Phut has all the amenities and services of the island.Samui Banks, ATMs, laundries, equipment rentals, auto and moto services, gas stations, markets, night markets, cafes, restaurants, water mats, water pumping stations, tai-shops and large household stores, furniture and leather workshops and so on.

On the western part of the beach, mostly hotel rooms.entertainment, beach nets for volleyball, kayaks, jet skis. For children organized a huge inflatable aqua-attraction with slides and floating islets. Exactly the same is on Chaweng.

In the east, there are free-standing bars,On the shore there are more open restaurants. Attraction near Bo Phut one - Buddhist temple Bo Phut (Wat Bo Phuttharam), which was recently built big monk figure. Also in the courtyard of the temple do mobile weekly fair.

Somewhere since 2015, a trade has opened on Bo PuteThe Warf Center. On a large area adjacent to the sea, a whole complex of one or two-storey buildings was built, where souvenir shops, cafes and restaurants are located. In the year 17-18, more than half of the premises in the depth of the shopping center were already empty because of the greed of the owner, who set the space rental prices.

Houses and hotels on the beach

Bo Phut Beach has more than twodozens of hotels that fit between the Ring Road and the sea. There are vacant lots, but in general - Bo Phut is one of the most built-up beaches of the island. If the hotel rest to you, for whatever reason, is not attractive, then you can always cross the road and start searching behind the ring.

The choice of housing is huge, houses are up to one and a half kilometers inland. However, it should be borne in mind that houses closer to large stores and centers are more expensive.

Right on the beach you can find nice small hotels, for example, Samui Palm Beach Resort & Hotel

or more roomy Ibis Samui Bophut

with a concise interior design.

Two more stylish hotels - Anantara Bophut Resort & Spa

and Hansar Samui Resort & Spa

and equally attractive Peace Resort

with accommodation in a bungalow on the beach.

Small Cozy The Lodge

located directly on the beach, as well as Bungalows at Bophut - very simple wooden bungalows.

How to find the beach

The beach is too long tocreate an access problem near water. The only thing that should be noted - the western part is completely filled with hotels. It is possible to pass through their territory, no one will shoot, but usually communication with staff takes time and mood, because strangers from the street are not at all happy.

Better to drive to the only one on Bo Phuttraffic lights, turn left and drive into Fisherman’s territory. Better yet, in order not to hustle with pedestrians on a narrow street, drive to the second entrance to the village. They throw a bike in a large parking lot and go to the beach, it is the same everywhere in the west. At the same time look at Bo Phut piers and walk along the Fisherman's Village itself.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
