Not to be missed is Bottle Beach; one of the most beautiful beaches in the entire country. It’s quiet and secluded, so if you are looking for relaxation, this should be at the top of your list. The coast is dotted with numerous accommodation types, but it’s also known for its abundant seafood dishes on offer. Freshly grilled crab, squid, prawns, and many more can all be found on the beachfront area.

Haad Salad Beach is another excellent vacation spot, known for sparkling emerald waters. The beach is 600 meters long, features powdery white sand and is lined with accommodation types for every budget. From luxury villas to inexpensive guesthouses, Haad Salad Beach has something for everyone.

When it comes to the best sunsets on Koh Phangan beaches, Zen Beach is where you’ll find it. The island comes alive late in the afternoons as tropical drum beats and poi dancers invite you to dance on the sand. Travellers sit on the beach with a drink as they witness the marvellous sunsets. After a delicious dinner on the beach, check out the local nightlife.

Secret Beach is a small bay, but what makes it charming is that it’s always quiet and peaceful. This makes it ideal for relaxing in after several nights of partying on the other beaches in Koh Phangan, and it has everything you need for a relaxing getaway. The coastline is filled with a great variety of restaurants and cafes to choose from.

Haad Rin Beach is famous for its legendary Full Moon parties. But during the day, its clear turquoise waters are perfect for swimming and cooling down from the summer heat. Aside from nightlife, Haad Rin has great shopping too.

Koh Phangan beaches have so much to offer. Other famous destinations here include Haad Yao Beach, Mae Haad Beach, Haad Tien, Chaloklum Beach, and Malibu Beach, among others.
