About Koh Phangan
There are 34 beaches on Koh Phangan and each one offers a different experience for visitors to the island. Even though Koh Phangan is a small island, which you drive (almost) around the outside of on a motorbike in less than 2 hours, choosing the right place to stay is the key to getting the most out of a visit to Koh Phangan.
Our quick guide to choosing the best place for you to stay on the island is as follows:
- Partying: Stay on the South Coast in Haad Rin or Ban Tai as this is where all the parties, including the famous Full Moon Party, take place.
- Chill out and Yoga: Stay on the West Coast in Sri Thanu or Haad Yao as this is a relaxed area where the yoga and wellness centres are located.
- Luxury Accommodation: Head to Thong Nai Pan Noi on the East Coast which has the best beach on the island and four 5 star resorts, as well as plenty of private villas for rent.
