Mae Haad Beach, Ko Pha Ngan
(3.9/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The beach isn't spotless and the village is a unique site for the construction of a new Resort but the peculiarity of the Bay, the crystal clear water and white sand Strip combining beach at uninhabited islet of Koh But make the place quite unique; It is worth spending a few hours. The bars/restaurants on the beach aren't exactly cutting-edge but serve fresh food and very honest. Plus it's a chance to take a shower before continuing your journey home in public bathrooms in the restaurant, not very clean but better than nothing. The road between this part of the island isn't the greatest, all dirt road and stopped quite critical, if passed by the inner road, avoiding the costs, the concrete road is under construction and a few kilometers from the village. Wait until sundown and climbs on the hill overlooking the Bay, the view is unique!

  • Great beach for snorkeling, about 100 meters and shallow water (2-3 meters) there are different colors coral and fish of many colors and forms. The fine white sand, clear water. Very nice sunsets. There is a beach restaurant where you eat well. Not I give it five stars because there are parts of the beach that is a little dirty, wood, remains of networks, etc.

  • It's great, staying in a bungalow next to the beach, it is more nearly literally on the beach, it is incredibly AMAZING.
