Koh Samui’s stunning Bang Rak beach is 4km long with white sands and clear blue water; adjoining the popular north-eastern corner. The Bang Rak beach is known for its excellent scenery and lively parties.
Bang Rak is the closest point to Koh Phangan’s Full Moon Party; so it has become a popular accommodation spot, especially among Full Moon Party guests. However, the beach is quite serene and laid-back in comparison to the other beaches in Koh Samui.
Bang Rak Accommodation, Beach Villa & Resort Koh Samui
Bang Rak accommodation includes a number of budget and high-end lodging choices; including some excellent beachfront villas and upscale resorts. The best part is the accommodation here is cheaper than other upscale accommodation units in Koh Phangan and Chaweng.
Bang Rak is known for its traditional Thai wooden ferry boat rides and if you’re interested, you can take a boat trip ride to enjoy the stunning views of the distant hills and sparkling blue water. Additional to a relaxing ferry ride, you can enjoy other fun water activities; including the ability to hire a speedboat or jet ski.
Located towards the southern end of the beach, you’ll find plenty of accommodation options; including resorts, hotels, quaint villas and holiday homes. Some resorts offer well-appointed rooms, private beaches, swimming pools and shady bamboo pavilions where you can enjoy a Thai massage and a bit of aromatherapy. These upscale venues also offer beachfront restaurants and bars for you to enjoy.
