Bang Por, Koh Samui - Overview and Featured Properties
If it’s beauty, peace and an unspoiled tropical shoreline that you’re after, then Bang Por, on the less developed north-west coast of Koh Samui, is for you. And fortunately, it isn’t peace that comes at the price of losing good facilities and transport connections - Bang Por is just five minutes to main tourist beaches like Maenam and Bo Phut. And, Nathon Town with its banks, shops, restaurants and ferry port is just a ten-minute drive away.
The long, soft and sandy palm-fringed beach of Bang Por is the perfect honeymoon beach. Quiet, with warm, clear turquoise waters, you’ll be able to swim and savor this tropical paradise away from the crowds. You won’t find many watersports here, but you will discover nature at its best. Other than the noise of the crashing waves, birds singing and local dogs dancing in the sea you’re pretty much guaranteed tranquility. The waters can be pretty shallow but you can walk out further to get some decent swimming in. It’s good for families too; children love the warm clear sea and parents can relax because there are rarely big waves.
Eating out isn’t compromised either. The Four Seasons Resort and the Mimosa are top quality complexes, offering fantastic dining. Meanwhile, there are also some fine local beach cafes and restaurants to try. Look out for the seafood restaurants dotted along the beach serving up divine local fresh fish served in the simple Thai way, flavoured with lemongrass. The Reggae Beach Bar has a truly relaxed vibe and if you’re a dog lover then you’re in for a treat because a few of the local hounds love nothing better than going for a swim with you! 
Bang Por isn’t a night-time place but you can enjoy spectacular sunsets before the peaceful evening sets in. Many of our properties are sunset facing to the ocean and from many of the bars you’ll be rewarded with views out to Koh Phangan and Angthong National Marine Park. All in all, this peaceful part of the island remains unspoiled but you will feel utterly spoilt by its upmarket feel.
