Ban Tai Beach, Koh Samui (Bang Por) | Koh Samui Recommended Beaches

Ban Tai Beach, on Koh Samui's northern coastline towards the western end of Bang Por beach, is well-known to Koh Samui locals as one of the most picturesque beaches on the island. Not too be confused with Baan Tai beach on the neighbouring island of Koh Phangan, this quiet beach offers incredible views towards Koh Phangan, beautiful clean sands, great swimming (also for small children) and reef-filled waters that create wonderful shades of blue, turquoise and green.

By Beach Resort (see photos) is a great place to relax and there is also a little beachfront reggae bar a few minutes walk away. You can also find several other small resorts further along the beach to the west 


These photos were all taken at By Beach Resort which is located adjacent to the Lotus Terraces - a boutique luxury beachfront villas development. To get here, drive through Maenam and towards Bang Por. You will pass a school on your right and a temple on the left just before the turning. There is a small semi-permanent road with signs for both By Beach Resort and The Lotus Terraces (blue and white) displayed at the road entrance.
