Bophut Beach In Koh Samui – A Complete Guide

Bophut Beach Koh Samui is the perfect place to chill after shopping through Fisherman’s Village. The hipster cafes make it an ideal lunch stop too!

How To Get To Bophut Beach Koh Samui

Bophut Beach Koh Samui sits on the Northern coast and is just a short 30 minute drive up from the popular tourist area or Chaweng.

We stayed in the Chaweng area of Koh Samui and rented a scooter for 150 Baht per day. This gave us access to the whole island!

Located directly in front of Bophut Fisherman Village be sure to head up on a Monday or Friday to catch the night market!

If you’re looking for transport to and from Koh Samui, you can pre-book all of your Lomprayah transfers.

For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.
