Definitely reminded me of a traditional hippy commune. The smell of ganja is everywhere and don't be surprised to see people stoned out of their minds. Alot of strange places along this beach, but none of the less we still had a great time. A very unique and scenic spot. Very special! Also- woman tend to go topless here and... More

As everyone that has been to this side of Koh P knows, this beach is something special! The high mountains covered in lush jungle trees in the background, the huge rocks on the sides of it and the taxi boats coming in from around the corner as the only disturbance. The relaxed vibe on the resorts on the beach and... More

We stayed at Ocean rock for a week and it was fantastic. Exactly what we needed after all the crap we went through travelling the south of Vietnam (don't go). Our bungalow was basic but sufficient with a great view. We ate mostly at bamboo hut which was fantastic, but a few times at ocean rock which was also good.... More

I just spent 1 week on Haad Yuan. Its a great beach for people looking for a nice relaxed vibe but with a few choices of restaurants and things to keep them occupied. The great thing about this beach is that you can only reach it by longtail from haad rin which keeps it quiet, but at the same time... More

This beach is almost completely made up of the remnants of the reef which have broken off or been eroded - it's fascinating to see the different textures and colours instead of sand. The beach was an ideal place to catch the sunsets over the Ang Thong national park - Koh Samui can be seen in slight silhouette in the... More

This is probably one of the most beautiful beaches in Koh Phagnan. The white sand and turquois water are spectacular. You can spend the whole day there watching the long tail boats, swimming and getting a nice snack in a charming restaurant on top of a hill. To get there you need to climb a few steps but it's so...
