Bo Phut, Koh Samui

19 Mar

Fisherman’s Village
#1 to do and see is the Fisherman’s Village. It’s filled with nice restaurants (most with beach view), bars, and shops, but the place rarely ever gets crowded like Chaweng. On fridays the place is packed with locals, tourists, and stands selling clothing, accessories, wine (you can even do some wine tasting) and food. Take the time to buy a banana pancake at any stand. It’s delicious (and not very rich like I expected). I’m glad I tried this the last day of my visit, otherwise I’d had at least one each day.

There is a cocktail bar at the end (north side) of Bo Phut beach with amazing cocktails, and a totally chill-out atmosphere. You can either sit in the straw chairs (which bounce up and down), or lie on the huge cusions on the sand.

On some nights there is a market in the “parking lot” before you enter Fisherman’s Village. The locals gathered here to buy food, drink, buy clothing, play games, and listen to concerts.

 

 

Bo Phut beach
During the day you can enjoy the calm, clean, and deep waters of Bo Phut beach. A very good beach for swimming, but not so much for sunbathing in the sea an entire day. The dogs own the beach as much as you, but they don’t bother you. Look out for the three legged dog.

      Agreed. I’m glad we lived close by. The pier was a great place to just sit and take in the views 🙂
