The island is located off the east coast of the Thai mainland in the Gulf of Thailand.  And it has its own international airport.

A Shore Beach Bar is one of five food and beverage outlets at Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort. In fact, it is located near Koh Samui’s popular Fisherman’s Wharf.

The outdoor bar features a blue and white colour scheme, reflecting its marine vibe. However, many of the furniture and furnishings were fashioned from reclaimed objects. For example, an old fishing boat was turned into a beach sofa.

Blue swings, bean bags,  and beach beds are scattered across a whitewashed deck, which straddles the swimming pool and the beach.

As the afternoon progresses, DJs start spinning the disks. The beach bar near Fisherman’s Wharf opens at 11 am. And it stays open until 9 pm.
