This is a peaceful shallow-water bay where you can charter long-tail boats out to neighbouring islands. Prices are usually fixed but it doesn’t hurt to bargain with a smile.
Thong Krut, like a lot of Samui, is in a state of flux, with many buildings going up and just as many being demolished to make way for newer ones. Here, you have the choice to eat at several large seafood restaurants, all with sea views and all with the freshest catch.

To hire a long-tail boat simply chat with the owner and find an agreeable price for you both. Boat drivers will recommend trips out to Koh Mudsum, Koh Taen and several other destinations for snorkelling, swimming and beachside relaxation.
If you're feeling peckish then stroll into the large, fan-cooled Beach Restaurant - it has all-day dining and specialises in fresh seafood.
The beach itself at Thong Krut is charming at high tide, not so much at low tide. Great for strolling and exploring, the views from here take in neighbouring islands and you'll soon be asking locals about how to get to them.
