Bophut Beach East has the famous Fisherman's Village, and just a few accommodations

.
This Bophut Beach East map shows the small group of beach hotels right on the edge of Fisherman's Village, and a lone beachfront resort at the far west end of Bangrak Beach.
.
The sand and water at Bophut East are very mediocre, and the beach narrow. Once again, an offshore reef here keeps the water shallow and not as clear as on other beaches. This is not the place for those seeking a classic, tropical beach holiday, but with Bophut's Fisherman's Village right nearby, staying here has numerous lifestyle attractions.
.
The hotels in the village are more like town hotels than beach resorts, with only the end place, The Waterfront, being set up like a small resort. These small beachfront hotels are ideal for anyone coming to Samui on business, for the location at the top of the island gives easy access to most important parts of the island, and there are ample wine and dine opportunities just a stroll away.
.
Bophut's village hotels are also ideal for those who want easy access to the many restaurants and bars, to a bit of entertainment and some shopping here. There are many photos and more information on Bophut's Fisherman's Village here.
