Mae Nam Beach

Getting there and away


The Lomprayah ferry terminal is set towards the western end of Mae Nam Beach with daily departures to Ko Pha Ngan, Ko Tao and on to the mainland town of Chumphon (from where you can continue on by bus to Bangkok). Mae Nam's proximity to the fast ferry makes it an ideal stopover for those in transit to the Full Moon Party.

The less-known Thong Nai Pan Express ferry, smaller than the others, goes daily between Mae Nam pier 'walking street' and the east coast of Ko Pha Ngan stopping only on Haad Rin, Haad Tien, Than Sadet and Thong Nai Pan. Departing Thong Nai Pan at 09:00 and Mae Nam at midday. It costs between 250-350 baht depending where you are going. It does not run during the monsoon from around the end of October to the beginning of December.
