Travellers, it’s time to relax and unwind at beautiful Bo Phut!
Mention Bo Phut, and almost immediately, Bo Phut Beach, with its turquoise waters and fine, white sand comes to mind. The Bo Phut beach is located between the Maenam Beach and Bangrak Beach, along the northern coast of Thailand.
The beach is one part that makes up Bo Phut. The other part is the Fisherman’s Village, a quaint and well-preserved village situated in the middle of the beach. Traditional wooden shophouses line along the streets, located alongside a few odd modern buildings. Containing a mix of old and new, this village, which was once the main French outpost on the island, retains much of its Mediterranean vibe.
