Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web
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. See Thong Nai Pan Yai Beach and all Ko Phangan has to offer by arranging your trip with our Ko Phangan vacation generator.

  • Probably my favourite beach on Samui. Smaller beach which seems to be less crowded. Sand is fine and soft. Good for kids as you can walk out very far and it doesn't get too deep.
  • One of the best beach in Koh Phangan. Clear water and white sand. A must see
  • By far the best beach on the island. The sand is soft an nice and when you walk into the crystal clear waters there are no stones to hurt your feet. A great beach. The best restaurant on the beach is at Nice Beach Bungalows. The best restaurant in the area is Soms Restaurant. Ask for directions, it's only a 5 tot 10 minutes walk from the beach. Som makes a glorious Red Snapper for only 200 Baht! Also Barracuda and Tuna steaks. Very tasty!
  • Small beach and very private good for holiday
  • Calm, beautiful, not crowded. Perfect familj beach. No people selling things.
