Mae Haad Beach, Ko Pha Ngan

3.7
#5 of 16 in Parks in Ko Pha Ngan
Beach Nature / Park
Sunbathe and snorkel at Mae Haad Beach, a pristine white-sand shoreline. This long beach is serviced by several resorts and set in an area designated as a marine reserve. Just steps into the calm water, you will find yourself floating over a lively coral reef. Keep your eyes peeled for creatures like reef sharks and sea turtles. At low tide, walk across the sandbar to the small island of Koh Ma. Top off your visit with a relaxing massage right on the beach, or order a fresh seafood meal in one of the beachside restaurants. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Mae Haad Beach and many more Ko Pha Ngan attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Ko Pha Ngan trip itinerary planner.

Where to stay in Ko Pha Ngan

Stick to the southern coast for the greatest range of accommodations on Ko Phangan. Reasonably priced beach resorts and backpacker hotels offering basic rooms line the shore and the area surrounding the main ferry dock. The southeastern peninsula also hosts decent options, and generally offers a bit more luxury than the establishments located near the docks. Explore the remoter areas to enjoy resort-style accommodations, offering seclusion and privacy at relatively steep prices.
