Accommodation

Ko Pha Ngan is a big island with plenty of beaches – so please use these links to jump down through the list. We commence at Thong Sala and go around the island counter clockwise, heading along the south coast beaches of Ao Thong Sala, Baan Tai and Baan Kai. Followed by Haad Rin sunset side, off beach and sunrise side (where the Full Moon Party is) with Haad Saikantang rounding out the southern beaches.

Heading up the east coast, we have Haad Yuan, Haad Thian, Haad Why Nam, Than Sadet, Thong Nai Pan Yai and Thong Nai Pan Noi.

Over the north coast, we have Bottle Beach, Haad Khom and Chaloklum, then we take a left at Mae Haad and head down the west coast.

The west starts with Haad Salad, then Haad Khruad, Haad Thian, Haad Yao, Ao Chaophao, Ao Seethanu, Ao Hinkhong, Ao Plaay Laem and Ao Nai Wok and there we go – back at Thong Sala.
