Big Buddha Beach

Bangrak Beach lies in a small bay on the Samui's northeastern coast, facing Koh Phangan is just at the end of the landing track of International Airport. The beach is better known among tourists as Big Buddha Beach. It derives this name from the 12-metre-tall statue of the sitting Buddha situated within Wat Phra Yai, the temple overlooking the bay. The beach is a couple of kilometers long, though quite narrow; consisting of fine white sand is lined by lush vegetation and is never crowded. The surrounding waters are clear and shallow; the eastern edge adjacent to the rocky promontory offers good spots for snorkeling. However, while the statue is one of Samui's most famous attractions, the beach is not very popular among tourist, although it is only 15-minute drive from Chaweng, so it is suitable for families with kids and for those seeking tranquility. On the road running along the village behind the beach, there are several shops, restaurants, banks, mini markets, internet points, diving schools, travel agencies, car and bike rentals. Next to eastern edge is located the Bangrak Pier, from which leave the ferries toward Koh Phangan and Koh Tao. Overnight stay is guaranteed by a good selection of hotels and resorts at lower prices than other renowned beaches. The nightlife is quieter than Chaweng or Lamai, although there are some pubs and bars in the English style. Every Sunday from 4 pm onwards there is the Secret Garden Festival, where local bands and musicians perform live music along the streets.Read More
