Thong Nai Pan Yai Beach, Ko Pha Ngan

4.6
#4 of 24 in Parks in Ko Pha Ngan
Soft white sand slopes gently into the crystal clear ocean at Thong Nai Pan Yai Beach. The safe, calm, scenic beach suits families and anyone looking for a bit of peace. The longer of two beaches on a scenic double bay, this one remains pleasantly quiet due to the absence of accommodations in the immediate vicinity. Explore nearby walking trails through the jungle, where you can spot waterfalls, lizards, and small wildcats. Experienced rock climbers can seek out some of the natural rockfaces. If you get hungry, choose from a handful of resort restaurants.

  • The similarity with some Brazilian beaches, like Ubatuba and Ilha Grande, was so remarkable that we've felt at home.  more »

  • Another of my favorite beaches for swimming on the isle. A bit more quiet than beach to the west. Clean white sand that is soft and free of trash. I would come back and stay around here if I had the chance.
  • Great, quiet beach. No trash, no jellyfish, no seaweed. One of the best beaches in the island!
  • Crystal clear water with shallow depths. Less crowd and several bars along the beach with WiFi facilities. There are huts along the beach for rent and although I didn't get to stay there, it should be worth it.
  • Awesome,clean beach with white sand and a few bars . Shallow waters , perfect for kids because no big waves . Quite in the off season, but I liked it . Very friendly staff at the bars.
  • Lovely bay,.... in good weather it's just stunning. White sand and crystal clear water. IMO this is the nicest of the two Thong Nai Pan beaches. The drive from Tongsala is hilly with lots of curves ..(about 20 Kms from Tongsala or 14 kms from Ban Tai.) just take it easy when driving in. The road is now paved all the way.

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.
