Jump on a paddle board and explore the coastline of Koh Samui at your own pace. You’ll paddle past empty beaches with countless coconut trees. And there’s hardly any traffic out on the water. It sure beats sitting on the ring road waiting for the lights to change to green.

isup samui 1Local operator, iSUP Samui, are offering a unique way to explore the coastline of Koh Samui on Stand Up Paddle boards. Last week they took a group on a half day tour exploring the north coast of the island. The group set off from Bophut beach near The Wharf in the morning and paddled for about 30 minutes before taking a break for a swim at the beach near W Retreat. After that it was another 30 minutes paddling along the coastline before stopping for lunch and a swim at The Treehouse on Silent Beach. After a delicious lunch, a swim and some refreshing drinks, the group cruised back to Bophut on their paddle boards.

“It was just a few steps up from the beach into the shady comfort of the restaurant, where we enjoyed drinking fresh coconuts whilst choosing from the menu. There’s lots of Thai food available along with quite a few western options. I chose the Larb Gai (spicy chicken salad, Thai style), but next time I’m going to try one of their fresh western style salads” said Tammy Wade, Instructor at iSUP Samui.

isup samui 2iSUP Samui offers daily tours, as long as the weather is good. All equipment is provided, and lunch and soft drinks are included in the package. Transfers can also be arranged, and depending on your location they might even be included in the package.

Note: You should be a confident swimmer and have some paddling experience before taking this tour. If you’re a beginner, why not book in for a couple of lessons with the qualified Instructors at iSUP Samui before considering a tour.
