Bophut is a former old fishing village and is said to be the oldest village on Ko Samui. Today the center of the village has developed to a fine tourist destination with good restaurants, small hotels and guesthouses and shops and bars. The last years the image of Bophut has improved a lotand so it belongs to the best places on the island now.
Bophut is not only a nice little village, but also a good beach destination. The two kilometer long beach is devided into two sections. The eastern part lays along the village front and is less attractive for swimming and laying on sun beds. Nevertheless it is clean and filled with beach restaurants at night.
The western part of the beach is a beautiful holiday beach for enjoying beach life all day long. The best resorts are located here.
Bophut has a big choise of very good beach resorts and spas. The western beach is lined with four and five star resorts. A very good recommendation is Smile House Resort with an excellent location between the village and the western beach.
