  • Stay overnight for the real deal, you will thank me later. Walk to the other side of the island for some peace and quiet. There be lizards.
  • Must see place in Thailand. Very beautiful. White sand, crystal clear water stunning views. Yes, sadly it's very overcrowded, but you won't notice if you just sit and relax :)
  • The best and cleanest beachfront one can find in this part of the sea. Take advantage of the possibility of spending a night here to enjoy the empty beach in the morning and snorkeling with less crowds. Generally way less crowded than any of the other islands we've visited. Highly recommended.
  • Nje enderr!! bellissimo!the best i have Ever seen!!
  • Amaizing white sand beaches and water so clear that you have feeling it is air. Absolutely to see in Thailand - worth to pay more and stay a night or two to see it without crowd (all one-day trip boats arrive/leave/hang around between 10.00 - 16.00)

Where to stay in Phang Nga

Phang Nga does not offer luxurious resorts and features just a handful of budget and mid-range accommodation choices. If you must stay on the main street, ask for a room in the back, or you probably won't be able to sleep from the music and noise blasting throughout the night. Although generally clean, many of the town's old hotels do not all offer hot water, air conditioning, or dependable Wi-Fi. Mid-range hotels, located away from the main street, provide better accommodations with ocean views.
