Bang Po Beach is located on the northwest corner of Koh Samui, between Nathon and Maenam Beaches. The beach is about four kilometers long and faces to the north with views of Koh Phangan.
The waters are calm in this area of Koh Samui and the beach is very clean. Palm trees line the edge. There are shallow coral reefs nearby which provide excellent snorkeling.
There is not much development in this area. Very limited accommodation, little tourist shopping and nightlife. The price for land in this area is less than other areas of Koh Samui. The result is many housing developments with houses for sale and rent. The road in this part of Koh Samui is very close to the ocean and quite hilly.
