Bang Bao Beach Restaurants – Our Favourites

bang-bao-beach-restaurants-koh-changBang Bao Beach restaurants are, in the main, exactly that, classic beach restaurants of the bamboo chairs and thatch roof variety, offering simple one dish over rice, noodles and western food, shakes and cold beers.

After Bang Bao Pier and village, the first strip of sand you encounter is known locally as Hat Sai Noi (noi, little, sai, sand, hat, beach). Over time, this has developed into a great hang out spot and you can spend all day at either Ido or next door at Maha, both offering up good food and a chilled-out atmosphere.

Just down the road at Bang Bao Beach itself, Chaipura Resort on the creek has a lovely dining room setting, breakfast time very pretty as the light changes on the water and then down on the sand, Yu Yu Golden Beach has a bit of everything, popular for sure with the Russian crowds.

You won’t go far wrong at either The Beach or Klong Kloi Kitchen, again nothing fancy but well prepared and tasty fare and Chivapuri Resort and Tropical Beach Resort at the southern end are also worth a nose if you are staying here, seafood in particular at the latter. Bamboo Hut, another decent choice, also runs a cooking school on site.

Incidentally, Bang Bao Beach is also known as Klong Koi Beach.
