Holidays in Koh Phangan
Located in the Gulf of Thailand, the island of Koh Phangan is part of the Samui peninsula. Famous for its full moon and half moon parties at Haad Rin beach the island has a reputation as a backpacker destination. However, there are plenty of beautiful bays far from the party pack along with beautiful boutique beachfront hotels. Reached by ferry from Koh Samui, the island has plenty to offer travellers who want to avoid the crowds and is a great choice for families.
With secluded bays and picture perfect beaches dotted with coconut palms Koh Phangan is a relaxing island escape. The island's mountainous jungle covered interior is protected by a national park and hides the beautiful waterfalls of Nam Tok Phaeng, easily reached with a short trek. Khao Ra Mountain, the highest on Koh Phangan at 625m offers a spectacular viewpoint from its summit.
A day trip to nearby Ang Thong Marine National Park should not be missed for great snorkelling and world class scuba diving. February, March and April are the optimum months to explore the undersea world but Koh Phangan is a wonderful spot during our summer months too.
