Bophut - Fisherman’s Village
Just under one kilometer of restaurants and shops stretching along the beach with a vast variety of food available from traditional Thai cuisine, Mexican, Indian, French, Italian, to fresh sea food an sizzling steaks from the BBQ at “The Shack”. Relatively quiet during the day the street scene comes to life at dusk and the vendors set out their wares and families wander from shop to shop. Very much a family orientated area with just the traditional “Pub” and no girlie bars.
Other attractions in the area include the Go-Kart Circuit on the Ring Road. Four large hotels are situated at the western end of the village and there are numerous smaller hotels in between the shops and restaurants. Allow 15 -20 minutes to the Airport and 20 minutes to Santiburi Golf Course.
Bangrak runs along the southern shore of Big Buddha Bay for just under 3 kilometers from the Ferry Pier to the headland before Fisherman’s Village. The Eastern end is close to Big Buddha and the fresh food market across the bridge in Plai Laem. There are many restaurants and hotels situated along both sides of the road as well as numerous bars and shops. Sports fans are well catered for with The Premier Sports bar and The Office showing most live sports events on big screens. There is the usual selection of 7-11 and Family Mart and Tesco Express convenience stores. There are a few Bank Exchange booths but no bank branches.
Ferries run from the Pier at the eastern end and provide services to the nearby islands. Many boats also leave from the small piers along the beach to the regular Full Moon Parties on Koh Phangan. The airport is close by with arrivals 10 minutes and departures 15 minutes away.
Occupying an ocean front position, this villa has possibly one of the best close ocean views in Samui without being on the beach, although access to the foreshore is possible. Sitting in the corner of a private estate the property enjoys privacy in tropical garden surroundings. The villa has been well maintained and has high quality Sun Paradise window units throughout.
