Ko Pha Ngan

Posted by jldm on 14/7/2006 at 11:28

Hey,

I was researching places to stay in Ko Pha Ngan and didnt really find what I was looking for. I am looking for a place that has huts on a nice beach, thats relatively quiet, with good swimming and snorkeling. Condition of huts is not overly important... Somewhere you can go and spend a few weeks just chilling. I looked through all the huts on this website and maybe I overloaded but just couldnt find what I was looking for... any suggestions?

Thanks!

jldm,

hi. i do have a suggestion for you, but it isn't for a specific place to stay. since you'll have a few weeks to hang out, it is definitely worth it for you to just grab a place for the first night or two once you arrive, and then have a look around until you find exactly what you are looking for. just having a place to put your pack while you look around is a bonus, and takes pressure off you to settle for something you don't really want.

before you go, at least have an idea of a particular beach or two that looks like it fits your needs in terms of sea, sand, services, etc. then after you arrive, look for your dream hut. this is how we usually travel, particularly on beach trips, and it works out well for us. good luck.

Hi, Try a beach only accessable by boat called Haad Yuan on Koh Phangan, last time i was there it was very chilled, little bamboo huts right on the sand under the coconut trees. Great swimming food etc... and very cheap! For snorkelling you should try Ko Tao. Im heading back there in January I loved it so much!
Cheers,
T

If it's not too late...I agree with Exacto's suggestion and did just that in June. I stayed at My Way in Haad Salad and found it to be a good place to diffuse from traveling and with a motorbike the whole island was easily accessible from there. The bungalow was funky (70's?), but clean, the people nice, and the area was quiet and beautiful...go out far enough and the snorkeling was great...gigantic brain coral (amongst a variety) and amazing fish!
