Hi, We have been to Samui in September and the weather is fine maybe a bit of rain but only for a short time. Have a great time in Thailand.

The lady is correct about getting to BB, The best option would be the road, but the last but is on a very rough track requires 4 x 4, its would be a very long day if not staying on Koh Phangan,

The best option due to the short time on the island, the full day to the national park,

On west side of the island you have The Conrad hotel, 5 star, but you can go for lunch at a very good price plus amazing views, or watching the sunset go down.

The other restaurant if your out and about is The Cliff restaurant is ok for lunch and dinner, Conrad cheaper and a view to die for.

just in case the medical services on the island our great and the dentist also, hopefully will not be required. if you require any information about Thailand or Samui please just ask,

But its your holiday and what ever you do, you will have a great time. Your holiday will start once you arrive in one of the pettiest airports in the world.

Bottle Beach II Bungalow is located at Bottle Beach , in the north of Phangan Island. All bungalows are set in front of the beach where you can lie down on the beach and relax in peaceful atmosphere. Every bungalows face to the beach so you can appreciate marvelous sea view.

Had Khuad is better known as Bottle Beach, one of the island most well-known beaches and a Mecca for long-termers and old skool Phangan aficionados. The beach is inaccessibility has meant that you tend to get visitors staying on for more than a week or so as it is usually only reached by taxi boat from Chaloklum, and if the weather comes in, you can get stranded here for a day or two as the boats can only navigate the seas here when they are calm.

The sea conditions change as you move further round towards the East coast of Pha Ngan and do not favour coral, thus the sea shelf starts to fall away quite steeply, making it possible to swim here all year round. Bottle Beach and Thong Nai Pan are favourites for low season visitors who want to swim, but don't mind missing out on the coral. It is also considered one of the most beautiful beaches on the island due to its wide golden beach, the lush natural cove and the high mountains that surround it. Due to its Northerly location, neither sunset nor sunrise can be seen from this beach.

At Bottal Beach II Bungalows, you will be served Thai and International Food with many yummy menus. At night time, you can enjoy the pleasant dinner and drinks as well as BBQ Party on the beach with camp fire. You can have dinner at beachfront restaurant as well as enjoy the romantic nightime on the beach.

Bottle Beach is recommended for young visitors who love adventure and activities. You can take a walk just a few minutes to the sea and do snorkelling and kayaking. Moreover, for the people who loves hiking and trekking, You can trek to the jungle and reach the view point where you can appreciate Bottle Beach Sea View overall.

Hi there,

You can't take a direct boat from Koh Samui to Bottle Beach unless you handle a private boat/driver. I didn't look into that because I knew it would be expensive.

So we took boat from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan.

Then, from Koh Phangan with short boat ride from Chaloklum to Bottle Beach.

Hope that helps.

:-)

Hi! I don't think so. The best option is to get the Lompraya ferry from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan and take a smaller boat from the pier to BB. You may have to negotiate with the boat operator for price, similar to getting tuk tuks in Bangkok.... otherwise, there is a road through the island that goes to Bottle Beach. Have fun!

Hi, What time of year are you traveling to Samui/location on the island? I lived/worked in Thailand for 16 years, If your staying on Samui I would visit .the sunset beach resort and pay the hotel to use the hotel pool etc? the beach is very nice plus you get the sunset, Bottle beach is not easy to get to from samui

and very basic plus if i can remember no sunset.
