Mae Haad Beach, Ko Pha Ngan

(3.7/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • If the site of the peninsula remains interesting for snorkeling, the end of the beach access is in complete concreting, avoid to go through it. Koh Ma has never been an example of cleanliness but this year it's deplorable, waste in the water and on the beach. Apparently, and it's very sad, the protection of the environment is not the priority.

  • This beach has long exceeded the Zenit. Scruffy, bad for swimming and construction sites of the future ugly hotel complexes. It's a pity... ü C

  • The beach is pretty long and not crowded, at low tide, it is however very shallow and rocky, so swimming is difficult. There are also some sea urchins, which have settled even after a few meters into the water. Now be built bungalows directly on the beach and behind another hotel is created, so the mass tourism arrives here. For us it's not tragic in this case, however, it will be always full.
