Zen Beach

Zen Beach is one of Koh Phangan’s most beautiful beaches, known for its incredible golden sunsets.

Since not all the beaches on the island offer front-row seats to the sunset, this area is well-known for being the prime spot to be at dusk.

During the high season, the beach is filled with vibrant activity. There are poi dancers, drum beats, kids playing, and laid-back travellers sit on the beach waiting for the sun to go down.

Every evening, there is a different kind of entertainment on the beach that visitors of all ages can appreciate. The atmosphere here is one-of-a-kind; enhanced by the magical colours of the sky as it changes for sunset.

While Koh Phangan has dozens of spectacular beaches, this one has its charms. Also known as Naked Beach, travellers staying at the nearby beaches make the trek to visit this area during their stay because of its unique atmosphere. Come solo or with your friends – you’re guaranteed a good time at Zen beach for sure.

The coast is also lined with cool, bohemian beach bars that serve the perfect snacks and refreshments for the day’s end. When dinnertime rolls around, you can choose to enjoy a meal by the sea, or head over to the market located west of Koh Phangan for cheap and delicious street food.

The best time to visit Zen beach is around 5pm, which is perfect for you to grab a cocktail and find a comfortable spot as you soak up the fantastic ambience.

Finding the beach is easy, just go to the top of Sri Thanu, turn into the school, then keep going. You will reach a fork in the road but take the right turn and park. Soon enough, you will be on this glorious beach!
