Hin Kong

Hin Kong is a beautiful stretch of beach in Koh Phangan; most of which remains undeveloped. Lush mangroves dot the coastline, and several Thai long-tail fishing boats are parked on the shore.

Tourists flock here to enjoy warm Thai hospitality and high-quality establishments such as restaurants and bars.

Although the beach may not be ideal for sunbathers and snorkelers, what makes this area unique is that it’s blessed with terrific views that can be seen from various establishments throughout the bay.

Accommodation can be found on the coast and the headland, which it shares with Srithanu. It features luxury beach resorts, deluxe villas, boutique hotels, as well as cheap bungalows, so there’s something for everyone here.
