Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the South China Sea in the Gulf of Thailand is the beautiful island of Koh Samui. And on the northern coast, travellers will find the delightfully calm and breath-taking Bang Po Beach. A Bang Po Beach holiday is the ideal choice for those visitors who want to truly get away from it all and to savour the relaxed way of life to be found on the many of the islands belonging to Thailand.
Being situated on the coastline of this beautiful island, it is not surprising that there are plenty of watersports for travellers to indulge in such as water skiing, jet skiing, windsurfing and snorkelling. Due to the fact that the area surrounding the beach has not been over-developed, visitors can simply relax on the 2 miles of white, sandy shoreline and simply soak up the sun in relative tranquillity.
If you decide to venture out from your luxurious Bang Po Beach holiday rental villa to explore Koh Samui then there are several wonderful places not to be missed on your travels. Whilst the island does not have as many attractions as say, Phuket, there are still enjoyable activities to help while away the hours. Visitors will find a relaxing butterfly garden on the east coast at Natien, as well as several buffalo fighting arenas dotted around the island (buffalo fighting, unlike bull fighting in Spain is virtually harmless to the animals). There is also a prestigious buffalo fighting festival held at various venues around the island, usually on New Year’s Day in January.
Interestingly, if you decide to book a wonderful Bang Po Beach holiday rental villa, the island of Koh Samui has a different climate to the majority of Thailand. Visitors on a Bang Po Beach holiday can expect to experience two seasons – one Tropical and one rainy. This climate means that it is possible to visit the island at any time of the year and experience daytime temperatures of around 32 degrees Celsius. The rainy season on the island usually only lasts for one month (throughout the month of November more often than not).
