Until recently Bang Saray was a sleepy fishing village where the only activity was the coming and going of the small wooden fishing craft as they depart each day to make their catch. Recently, due to the superb location it has been “slightly” developed by one or two high end villa projects. However, it still maintains its “olde worlde charm”. The gentle sloping beach and the calm turquoise waters are rarely busy and offer an excellent opportunity for relaxing and eating local barbecue and seafood dishes.
Only a couple of hundred metres in from the beach road stands the impressive Bang Saray Temple (Wat) with its tall roofs and highly decorated spires. If you are an early riser it is possible to see the monks on their daily rounds, collecting food and performing ritual blessings to the people.
Bang Saray is ideally located for those who enjoy a variety of pastimes and activities. Within only a few minutes of Bang Saray Village you will find several world class golf courses where you can enjoy a round for a fraction of the price of those courses at home. Watersports are also available direct from the beach at Bang Saray: Fishing, Water Skiing, Diving, Snorkelling, Sailing, Kayaking plus many more. At the weekend the local Bang Saray Temple is a calming place to visit and watch the Buddhist monks in their saffron robes chanting and meditating.
