Koh Phangan is by far the liveliest and the most happening island situated off the Central Gulf Coast of Southern Thailand. The whole island mostly functions as a holiday retreat, where you find fun filled activities to engage in at every part of the island. Starting from relaxing in the beach, enjoying adrenaline-inducing aqua sports to partying the night away, this island is definitely a favourite amongst not only adults, but also teens and the younger generation.
The sea spreading out across on all sides of the island is game for almost any aqua sport on the face of the earth. The Baan Manali beach North of Thong Sala is the best area for sailing, wind surfing and kayaking whilst the Haad Mae Haad creates the setting to take on snorkelling and diving. Other than water sports, the beaches in Koh Phangan also provides ample space and facilities for those who want to spend a relaxing time on the beach with their family and friends. The Laem Son Sea is one such beautiful beach front for those who wants to relax and enjoy a good swim in cool waters. Fringed with delightfully green coconut palms and bordered by glistening white sands, the Laem Son beach is also a good place to just sit and relax, maybe soak in a little bit of sun. This beach is situated in the Northwestern part of Koh Phangan and is a favourite among locals and foreigners alike to indulge in a bit of fun with friends and family.
