Salad Beach, Ko Pha Ngan

3.9
#2 of 16 in Parks in Ko Pha Ngan
Beach Nature / Park
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. Plan your visit to Salad Beach and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Ko Pha Ngan vacation trip 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.
