“beautiful beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Small area southern end has some snorkeling. Lots of places to eat all along the beach. Tides aren't to bad, you can still swim at low tide.

“Calm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

Calm like a pool with lower budget accommodation on hand and some cool bars on the beach at night. Can be got to by river taxi during the day and road at night just 5 minutes, good restaurants too.

“A great beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

Nicer than thong nai pan noi.
A little less crowded and feels more thai.
The road to there is a little hard and risky to drive.

“Wonderful beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

If you want to live in postcard for a time, don't hesitate ! Water is clear, the beach is not too crowded and everything is quiet. You can enjoy beautiful sunrises there as well as peaceful night walk.

“Amazing, peaceful, unspoiled! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014 via mobile

This beach is absolutely stunning! The softest sand in all of Thailand and the water is crystal clear. It's probably a really nice family beach too as the water doesn't get deep for a fair distance so would be very safe for children.
We walked to the far right of the beach and waded out to some rocks where we sat and sunbathed and swam out even further, but still very safe and calm. Whilst sitting at these rocks you could see all kinds of marine fish swimming about! Lots of little striped and coloured ones- it was amazing!
There are loads of gorgeous beaches around Ko Phangan, but this is my favourite. There is no loud music and the area seems very unspoiled by tourists. The roads are a pain to get there, but it's well worth a visit.
