Songkran Water Festival



Ao Wok Tum
Ao Wok Tum is the southern section of the wide bay that joins with Ao Hin Kong. Most of the bay is undeveloped as the coral reef lies about 300 metres off the beach. Mangrove trees line the beaches and give the place a real untouched feel, great for catching a sunset in solitude. A sign warns not to take seashells and corals from the bay, respect this as it is a haven for nature and it is illegal to take them home.
Ao Plaay Laem
Ao Plaay Laem is at the base of Khao Hin Nok, a granite mountain that dominates and transforms the landscape, making it a fairy tale of rounded boulders and hillside views over Ang Thong Marine Park. The bay is fairly shallow preceding the reef that lies about 80 metres away. Over the reef there are corals and marine life for snorkelling enthusiasts and a few resorts hire kayaks so you can paddle around the huge boulders in the sea.
Ao Nai Wok
Ao Nai Wok is the long bay that extends north from Thongsala after the main pier. At the top end, walking distance from town yet far enough away never to notice it, a number of resorts populate the beach and rocks start to break up the coastline. There is a reef about 80 metres out where the sea shelf drops allowing for some reasonable snorkelling conditions. Kayaks are also available for hire at a few resorts.
Ao Bang Charu
Ao Bang Charu is a peaceful beach with sunset views over Koh Samui; well away from the main road and big enough to really get away from it all. There are several well established resorts, some offering high standards of accommodation whilst others are great value.
Ao Baan Tai
Ao Baan Tai is the middle section of the long sunset beach that runs the length of the south-east coast. There is a small marina in the centre of Baan Tai where you can commission boat and fishing trips. Either side of the marina the wide white sand beach gradually slopes to meet the coral reef about 200 metres away and plenty of accommodation on offer.
Ao Baan Khai
The beach of Baan Khai bay is quite broad in places and countless coconut palms populate the lowland plains of the area. There is plenty of room on the beach if you're seeking solitude and a few beach bars and laid back bungalows dotted along the coastline.

Ao Hin Kong
Ao Hin Kong is a long bay that is mostly undeveloped, the coral reef lies about 300 metres off the beach and Mangrove trees line the coast giving the place an untouched feel, great for catching a sunset in solitude. A sign warns not to take seashells and corals from the bay, respect this as it is a haven for nature and it is illegal to take them home.
Ao Srithanu
Laem Sri Thanu is a peninsula lying between Hin Kong and Ao Sri Thanu. It extends way out from the coast and the small beaches that populate its coastline are close to the coral reef. It's also a good spot for beach fishing. On the northern end of Sri Thanu Bay the beach is split by a river estuary and has to be reached by footbridge, the sand is plentiful and the beach wide.
Haad Chao Phao
Haad Chao Phao has beautiful sunset views and softly curved bay that is the image of paradise. The sand is white and fine and the sea shelf is steeper before the reef, thus it is possible to swim whatever the tidal conditions. The reef is about 100 metres from the beach and once crossed the rich coral and vibrant sea life are an attraction for divers and snorkellers. It is where many of the original bungalows on the island opened in the early days.
Haad Son
Haad Son is a secluded tropical getaway that has some good quality resorts at its northern end. It is a small scenic palm fringed cove with a wide stretch of white sand.
Haad Yao
Haad Yao or "Long Beach" is picture postcard material, with a 1km beach that is wide enough to play football on with sunset views, coral reef, beautiful vistas and more than enough space to allow for its ever expanding popularity; many consider it the "perfect" beach with visitors returning time and again to their favourite bungalows.
Haad Thian (west)
Haad Thian is a small secluded beach with only one resort. Here the sand is courser mixed with coral deposits. It is fairly close to the reef, but is shallow before it thus swimming conditions are best in high tidal season unless you venture over the reef.
Haad Gruad
Haad Gruad is a small picturesque beach with course sand and coral deposits. It is too shallow to swim most of the time before the nearby reef, but drops off fairly steeply after; there is one boutique resort.
Haad Salad
Haad Salad is a beautiful and peaceful beach; good for swimming in high tidal seasons with a reef about 150 metres offshore that is a well-known dive site and popular beachfront resorts.
Haad Mae Haad
Mae Had has recently gone through a lot of changes, it has greatly improved road connections and there is a village building up behind it. There are quite a few resorts, but as the beach is fairly long, there's still enough room for solitude. It has sunset views over Koh Ma and the waters and coral reef that surround it are designated as a Marine Park as they are so rich in sea life, with turtles and small reef sharks. The beach has a sand bar that you can walk across to reach Koh Ma.
Haad Thong Lang
Haad Thong Lang or "Golden Deserted Beach" is exactly that. At present there are still no permanent settlers there, although recently a couple of huts have gone up but are rarely inhabited. It has a shallow coral bay with a reef that creates a beautiful lagoon in high tide.
Ao Chaloklum
The beach on Ao Chaloklum is about 2km long, with the village of Chaloklum right in the centre. As it is still primarily a fishing village you can find the local fishermens' wonderfully handcrafted longtail boats with truck engines mounted on the back; a great view to take in while eating in the local restaurants. At either side of the village there are some nice wide stretches of palm fringed beach and several peaceful resorts.
Haad Khom
Haad Khom is a pretty little beach on the east side of Chaloklum Bay , known for its laid back vibes and is popular with long-termers looking to get away from the hoards. It is a popular spot for snorkelling due to the extensive living coral reef.

Haad Rin Nok (sunrise)
Haad Rin Nok is the party beach on the sunrise side of the peninsula; it is an extremely picturesque beach which by day is full of sunworshippers and in the evenings, full of nightlife! The beach front is lined with resorts offering air-con and fan rooms.
Haad Rin Nai (sunset)
On Haad Rin Nai there are several high end resorts, great for escaping the noise of the parties and relaxing in air con as well as a few cheapies. The beach itself is usually fairly deserted and it's got a good stretch of white sand on which you can while away a few secluded hours.
Haad Khontee
Haad Khontee is a small deserted beach in the bay of Haad Rin Nok, there are no bungalows and it is best accessed by foot, strong tides can make it a danger to swim to.
Ao Hin Lor
Ao Hin Lor is a long white sand beach fringed by coral. There are several resorts spaciously placed with both low end and high end accommodation available.
Haad Leela (Haad Sarikantang)
Haad Leela is located on the headland and is a great beach to stay at if you want to be near the action, but not too near. It has a relaxed atmosphere and a long palm fringed white sand beach. There accommodation is limited but affordable.
Haad Yuan
Haad Yuan is a small and chilled beach with a couple of resorts and an old skool Phangan vibe running strong. It is accessible only by boat or mountain footpath.
Haad Thian (east)
Haad Thian has been a favourite with the new age and travelling crowd ever since people started trying to escape from Haad Rin. The Sanctuary is a healing centre with instruction in yoga, tai chi, meditation and massage that is built into the huge boulders on the hillside overlooking Haad Tian. There are also several other bungalow operations. Access only by boat or mountain footpath.
Haad Wai Nam
Haad Wai Nam is a small rock fringed beach with idyllic white sand and beautiful clear green waters, great for swimming. There is one resort at present, who generate their own power and the beach can only be reached on foot or by boat.
Haad Yao (east)
Haad Yao is a scenic secluded bay with white sand and clear waters and is only accessible on foot or by boat, there are only two resorts and both have to generate their own power giving it a real desert island feel.

Bottle Beach (Haad Khuad)
Haad Khuad or Bottle Beach is one of the island's most well-known beaches and is a Mecca for long-termers and old skool Phangan aficionados. It is considered one of the most beautiful beaches on the island due to its wide golden shoreline, the lush mountainous cove surrounding it. Its inaccessibility has meant visitors tend to stay longer than a week and it is usually reached by boat taxi from Chaloklam. Accommodation is mostly limited old school bungalows and a handful of modern air-con rooms.
Thong Nai Pan Noi
Immensely beautiful and with great swimming, the busier of the Thong Nai Pan beaches has a somewhat legendary status amongst travellers. There's a small village with a few cool bars, stylish restaurants and an old skool Phangan vibe. There are several luxury resorts in the area mixed amongst some budget bungalows.
Thong Nai Pan Yai
The quietest of the pair and is slightly longer with more space between rooms; equally as beautiful and also is home to the main village of the region.
Haad Sadet
The beach at the estuary of Koh Phangan's greatest waterfall and neighbouring the island's only National Park; a tropical wonderland of bohemian bungalows and chilled island vibes.
Haad Thong Reng
A few minutes walk from Haad Sadet, Thong Reng is the quieter of the two beaches and is a secluded sandy get away.
Haad Nam Tok
Haad Nam Tok or Waterfall beach is accessible via a small track and is bordered by Thaan Prawet Waterfall; it has a few good value resorts and an isolated old skool feel.
