The beach, whose name means Royal River in the local language, is considered sacred because back in the 18th century it used to be the preferred holiday destination among Thai kings. It was visited by many of them including His Majesty Rama V, VII, and IX. These kings’ initials are inscribed into granite rocks which are still found on the beach today. This beach was particularly the favourite of King Rama V, who was known to have fallen in love with it so much that he visited it 14 times.

The area is also where you will find the Than Sadet Koh Phangan National Park. This attraction is located where the Khlong Than Sadet River flows to the lush verdant hills, forming the biggest and most beautiful waterfall in the entire island. The park is highly recommended for visitors who like an adventure since it requires a little trekking where you’ll encounter awe-inspiring flora and fauna on the island.
