We all 'know' about bars in Thailand and what they 'offer'.
Well, the White Elephant offers something else; - a fun pub with a better than excellent selection of international beers and well above average coverage of sports from Australia in the south to Norway in the north. This is, at last, a place in White Sand where you are comfortable bringing your wife, your children, your girlfriend(-s) or just hang out with your pals.
Yes, I know the owner Frank personally and we're friends on Facebook, but never the less ....... Hat off, he set out to make the best bar on the island and he succeeded.

The beer selection here is impressive by any standard, and obviously unmatched on the island. Prices are very reasonable as well, with most beers ranging around 200 baht for a pint. My personal favorite is the New York Lager because it's served fresh on tap. The bar itself has a much better vibe than its surrounding neighbors like Paddy Palm's or Monkey Bar. The staff are friendly and competent, the atmosphere is relaxed and they offer a free jukebox style music system with tens of thousands of songs from all genres. It's also nice that they stay open til 2 a.m. even on a slow night. I did not try the food. The menu looked like the standard Euro-fare of big English breakfasts and meat and potatoes, nothing overly intriguing. But for beer connoisseurs, White Elephant is in a league of its own.

All the personal is very nice, and you're welcome. Foods are very good, and for people who enjoy playing pool, one of the most perfect table on the island.
Also enjoy drinking a beer in a long list which can be served..

Stayed at a hotel not far away from many bars in White Sand, but this bar was more relaxing and the place itself is much more then just a tin-roof and a chair then most of the other bars.

It have several Big-flat TV where sports are shown and have a great selection in beers and a good food menu. I liked to come here to meet up with friends and even the owner is a great guy.

If i go back Koh Chang I will go bak to this bar as well.

We stayed at the Island from April 29 to May 11. On one of our outings we went to the White Elephant Bar. We absolutely fell in love with this Bar, very clean and so are the bathrooms. Awesome beer, and super, super good food. My favorite was the Norwegian Salmon, the white sauce on the Salmon was to die for. The owner Frank is what made the difference, he is such a great Host, and very classy, he made us feel so welcome and we had great conversations with him. We stayed at the Amari at Klong Prao Beach, but we got so attached including my 8 year old grandson, that we did not even wanted to go to any other bar's anymore, needless to say, we drove to White Sand, to the Elephant Bar to see Frank, almost on a daily basis. That's all my Husband talks about. Frank keep up the great work you have put into the Elephant Bar, we miss you bunches, and thank you for your great friendship. We can't wait to see you again. Thanks' again for everything, you made our vacation special. Greetings from Colorado, USA from Anne and David.
