Big Buddha Beach
Big Buddha Beach is famous for its 12 meter golden statue of the Buddha. It is also a popular holiday beach that is conveniently located 5 minutes from Samui Airport and 15 minutes drive from Chaweng.
Big Buddha beach is a long stretch of white sand that remains very peaceful throughout the day. There are a number of budget and mid-range hotels on the beach and 1 luxury hotel, The Scent Hotel.
The beach road has a selection of bars, restaurants, dive shops, travel agents and souvenir shops. For those who like English pubs there is the Elephant & Castle and the Brahms& Liszt. For those who like Spanish food there's Tapas Bar Saboey.
Big Buddha used to be primarily a destination for backpackers but recently it has started attracting package tourists and those willing to pay more for good accommodation on a quiet and convenient beach. The only downside of Big Buddha Beach is that it is under the flight paths of planes coming and going.
Many people stay at Big Buddha Beach who want to go to the Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan as the pier has boats directly to Haad Rin beach.
