The Boat Bar, Bangrak - Recommended Bars / Restaurants, Koh Samui

The Boat Bar is located next to the Seatran Ferry Pier towards the eastern end of Bangak Bay. A lively bar and restaurant with a nice beer garden at the rear with beautiful views of Bangrak Beach and Koh Phan Ngan Island.
The beach area next to the beer garden is a little messy as it's used by local fisherman to store their nets and boats but the views are wonderful.
The Boat Bar is a great place to relax with a few drinks and it also offers a menu of Thai food and Western favourites. Alternatively, grab one of Akim's Kebabs or wander along to nearby Catcandoo for some of their famous BBQ ribs.
