Koh Phangan Attractions > Thong Nai Pan


Thong Nai Pan Noi and Thong Nai Pan Yai are twin coves that form a scenic double bay and are the most popular beaches in the east and sunrise side of the island. Tong Nai Pan has been a major on the travelling circuit for many years with  beautiful landscape, great vibe and unique islander hospitality that can only reach here.  Both beaches are the image of paradise with softly curved white sand bays surrounded by mountains covered in rich tropical rain forest.

The surrounding mountains make these beaches fairly inaccessible with a steep and rutted dirt road the only overland option. However, road works have commenced to make it a dual lane concrete road. An recommended way to get here is by boat from Had Rin or Chaloklum.

Thong Nai Pan Yai:
The beach is longer but very quiet with white sand, good for swimming along the coastline. Thong Nai Pan Yai also has a decent set of rocks for experienced climbers.

Thong Nai Pai Noi:
The beach is immensely beautiful and with great swimming. There is a trekking concrete path to mangrove forest.
This side of the island is still pretty wild, and the surrounding jungle is haven for many exotic tropical creatures

It is possible to swim at both beaches all year round. There are also some decent waves for body surfing. Both beaches have a bohemian vibe and small villages with cool bars and restaurants.
