Bang Por is an area located on the north west coast of Koh Samui midway between the towns of Maenam and Nathon. Although quite a large area, tourist activity is low key compared with other Koh Samui destinations; this has enabled it to retain its original island charm amidst the flurry of tourist activity elsewhere on the island.
The tropical landscape along this stretch of the coast is particularly stunning with magnificent views towards the nearby island of Koh Phangan. The palm fringed sandy beaches, clear water and refreshing sea breezes are prized by the more discerning visitors seeking an alternative from the more recognised Koh Samui holiday destinations. Recent development has focused more on individual family accommodation rather than larger resorts, meaning it is easy to find quiet private beachside accommodation or a hillside villa set in the lush vegetation.
Bang Por boasts excellent beachside facilities, including health and wellness spa retreats. As a fishing village, it is also home to superb restaurants, serving freshly caught seafood, served up in traditional Thai dishes.
Close to Bang Por is the Ang Thong National Marine Park, a protected nature reserve where you can join a guided tour boat and spend the day cruising the waters, witnessing the natural beauty and wildlife spread across numerous un-inhabited islands. Also nearby is the island of Koh Phangan which is easily accessible by scheduled catamaran from the town of Maenam. Here you can enjoy some sightseeing followed by a fresh seafood lunch in one of the many beachside restaurants admiring the stunning views.
Bang Por is within 30 minutes of the airport and just 10 minutes from Nathon, Koh Samui's main ferry port and administrative centre with its numerous shops, bars and restaurants. Other coastal areas of Koh Samui are easily accessible along the islands main ring road.
