Bophut Beach Attractions and Activities

Koh Samui Attractions

Bophut and its famous Fisherman’s Village are amongst our favourite holiday destinations in Koh Samui; the area hosts a great range of attractions and activities to entertain vacationers. Of course, the prime attraction remains the three kilometres long beach which permits standard Thai beach leisure activities and even hosts an aqua park featuring large inflatable floating devices on which children and adults alike can enjoy themselves.

For the energetic, Bophut activities and attractions range from exploring the jungle canopy by swinging through the trees to Go-Karting to golfing and mini-golfing to visiting Samui Crocodile Farm, and more. After all these energetic activities, visitors can get pampered at one of the spas/massage shops available along Fisherman’s Village main street.

Cyan Spa

Cyan Spa is one of the prominent beachfront spas in the Bophut area on Koh Samui. The really unique aspect of Cyan Spa is indeed its location. Set in a traditional Thai-style building, the floor-to-ceiling windows at the back of it look out over the calm waters between Bophut Beach and Koh Phangan.

There is an impressive choice of treatments available and, while prices are a little higher than the average for single-hour traditional Thai massages, the skill of the staff and the quality of the facilities do justify it. There are pedicures and manicures available, but the massages are rated as among the best in the area.

  • Opening Hours: Daily from 11 am to 10 pm
  • Location: 65/1 Moo 1, Fisherman’s Village, Bophut, Koh Samui, Surat Thani 84320, Thailand

Thai tattoos in Bophut

There are many tattoo studios on Samui offering work of varying quality. Although most tend to offer reasonable standards of health and hygiene, it's worthwhile making a thorough (sober) assessment of the studio before going under the needle.

Thailand's infamous monk's tattoos, which supposedly give the recipient magical powers, are available occasionally at Big Buddha temple. Even so, reports suggest that there are a number of health risks associated with this practice, so extreme caution should be exercised.

Mind Your Language

Mind Your Language is a well established, professionally run language school in Bophut that offers classes for up to 10 different levels. If you have the time and inclination, it can be a gratifying experience to attempt to learn a bit of spoken Thai while enjoying Koh Phangan.

Located in the Old Monkey Soi in Bophut, the school has experienced Thai teachers and they have a maximum of 6 students per class. They also offer 1-year education visas for their online Thai language courses. 

  • Opening Hours: Monday–Saturday from 9 am to 5.30 pm (closed on Sundays)
  • Location: 142/7 Moo 1, Bophut, Koh Samui, Surat Thani 84320, Thailand
