Best Beaches in Koh Phangan
On this list, we want to introduce you to the best beaches on Koh Phangan island that you can visit during the Full Moon Party, before it, after it, or in fact, any time of the month.
This is one of the best beaches in Koh Phangan because of the clear water, white sand, and quiet atmosphere. You can always find a few tourists on Leela Beach, but it is almost never crowded. You can enjoy shallow water walking around or go farther away and swim in the clear ocean. Leela Beach and its cute bungalows are definitely one of those places you should visit in Koh Phangan.
Haad Khuat or also known as Bottle Beach is a reserved beach in Koh Phangan. You can either trek through the jungle or take the boat but because there is no easy road to get to the beach. It’s always quiet. Even though being so reserved, Haad Khuat is well known amongst tourists and locals so getting a boat ride will be easy. We recommend doing a day trip to Haad Khuat.
Haad Son, aka Secret Beach, is a small beach next to Koh Phangan’s west coast bay. Unfortunately, it’s not as secret as its name but still worthy of your visit. In addition to enjoying the white sand and blue waters you can do some snorkeling and see the underwater world of Koh Phangan.
People know Malibu beach because of its paradise-like atmosphere. White sand and blue water are accompanied by the green hills and palm trees. The last touch for the perfect beach is the colorful fishing boats. Malibu Beach is becoming more and more popular all the time, but you can still enjoy the beach without masses of tourists during the offseason.
Haad Rin Nok
And the last but not the least beach we want to mention is, of course, Haad Rin Nok. You may already know this beach as the place of Full Moon Parties, but it is a good destination to visit around the month. White sand, clear water and famous beach restaurants – what else would you need for your Thailand holiday?
