Silver Beach Bungalows

Silver Beach Bungalows

Friendly and simple

More on Ko Pha Ngan

Silver Beach is one of a clutch of three places in a narrow block that runs from the beachfront back to the main Haad Yao road, just to the south of Long Bay, and offers simple clean, bungalow accommodation.

Travelfish says:

They have a single row of bungalows, the closer to the beach ones are concrete, the ones further back concrete and wood, running back from the beach and while they have no beach views, they are clean and well maintained. The beachfront is given over to a large two storey building that includes the restaurant (which was being extended at the time we stayed here in mid 2016) but most of the seating is outside the building on a shady beach terrace.

Rooms are air-con, with hot water bathrooms and firm beds. Oddly for this price, the beds have a bottom sheet only, with just two synthetic throws supplied as a top sheet which were about as comfortable as sleeping under a shower curtain. Bungalows have a veranda with a variety of deck furniture, but no hammock.

Overall, for the price, for Haad Yao, this wasn’t a bad deal, more because there just isn’t an oversupply of cheap rooms on the beach at Haad Yao, rather than here being great. The family who run it are very friendly, especially the kind older lady, which helped warm up the place a bit.

Opposite, No Name has bungalows near the beach and a brightly coloured two story motel-style building with air-con rooms, set back from the beach a little – like Silver Beach this would do at a pinch. If you’re not fussed about being off the beach, then Easy Life (on the hill behind Haad Yao) is cheaper and still comfortable, but is a long walk from the beach, or, if you want a more sociable scene, heard straight to Shiralea Backpackers Resort, behind Bayview. Be sure to shop around online for a competitive rate.
