Salad Beach, Ko Pha Ngan

4.2
#2 of 26 in Parks in Ko Pha Ngan
Swim in crystal clear water and relax on the soft white sand of Salad Beach, which, despite its popularity, retains a tranquil atmosphere and unspoiled natural surroundings. Once a pirate haven nestled between the thick forest and the warm sea, the beach is the perfect place to lie back and enjoy a sunny day. Nearby coral reefs offer excellent snorkeling and scuba diving opportunities. Right next to the coastline you can explore the selection of restaurants and hotels, where you can have a meal or a drink while soaking in the sea views.

  • This beach offers some pretty amazing snorkelling opportunities. The beach is clean and quiet. Highly recommended!  more »
  • In our opinion one of the best beaches on Koh Phangan. Good balance between liveliness and rest/relaxation. Not overcrowded. Good massage on the beach. We once stayed here at Salad Hut, which was a wo...  more »
  • The hotel is not so bad, but I can't give it a better rating than this one. It is rather quiet and pretty, a little off-center, with a beautiful swimming pool with a small view of the sea and access to the beach where you can watch the sunset. As far as the rooms are concerned, they are clean but would need renovations to be updated.  Breakfast is varied and pretty good, as far as meals you can stay at the hotel, otherwise I advise you to walk 2-3 minutes to reach the Ying Ying or the Alex Restaurant. Both are excellent and unmissable if you pass around !!! The scam: Despite all these positives, I am not in a position to advise you to stay at this hotel, where the man at the front desk is dishonest. Indeed, he defrauded us of 1000 THB. The deposit per room is normally 500 THB, he asked us 2000 for 2 rooms. At the check out, there is only a 1000 THB note for us, strangely we had not obtained a receipt and the cameras are no longer viewable beyond 5 days ..., Sacred lot of coincidences because this young man knew very well that we stayed 5 nights !!! Above all, we are crazy according to the host, but there are 3 of us who have seen and heard the same thing. Still, we will never see those 1000 THBs again and he sends us a huge smile and has all the other travellers who were checking out at the same time say that they had paid 500 THB bail. (none of them had stayed more than 5 days) In the taxi for the return, we chat with a couple who tell us that when they arrived there they asked them 150 THB for breakfast, then at the time of paying the price of breakfast had gone to 250 THB. In case you still wish to stay at this hotel, be careful what you are asked for and remember to ask for a receipt systematically in case you should leave a deposit because on our receipt there was no amount.  Film the money exchanges at the check in if need be! Good trip and above all be wary !!!

  • Gorgeous small beach. Great for kids.
  • Bit disappointing. Have to go through a resort to get to the beach. Much nicer beachea to visit on Koh Phangan
  • Nothing special just a normal beach. Water not so clear or anything.
  • Most quiet and serene beach on Koh Phangan local fishing village.
  • Very nice little beach. Soft sand. The beach is a couple of pubs.
