about koh phangan

Koh Phangan or Phangan island is one of the idyllic islands which lies to the north of Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailand. The distance from Koh Samui’s nearest part is 12 kilometers. Koh Phangan is the largest island in the small archipelago of 6 islands — Phangan, Tao, Tae Nok, Tae Nai, Ma and Nang Yuan. The charm and appeal of Koh Phangan lies in its rustic and laid back environment/ambience. One cannot fully describe the wonderful experience at Koh Phangan; one has to experience it first-hand and a stay at Pariya Haad Yuan will do just that.

Koh Phangan is about two-thirds the size of Koh Samui with a mix of sandy coves and rugged forested interior. Two-thirds of Koh Phangan is taken up by a long mountain ridge which is covered with a dense tropical rain forest that is still relatively unexplored. On one side of Koh Phangan, the mountains drop steeply into the sea while on the other side has picturesque bays with snowy white sandy beach. Koh Phangan is internationally famous for its Full Moon Parties, for which travellers and renowned DJs from all over the world converge every month. Sometimes known as the “Land of the Coconuts”, the fascinating natural beauty of the beaches is a key reason to travel to Koh Phangan. It is thus not surprising that “there is a beach for every type of beach lover”.

The port town of Thong Sala is the largest village on Koh Phangan and is considered “the front” of Koh Phangan because it is the main trading centre, and where most government departments are located. It is also the main transportation center as it provides boat connections to the nearby islands like Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan and other beaches on Koh Phangan. Restaurants, guest houses & locally-owned resorts, travel companies, car / motorbike rental companies are also available. For more information on Koh Phangan and its nearby islands, visit the many websites that provide information on this unique island or contact the resort.
