Was für ein traumhafter Strand! Wir waren außerhalb der Fullmoonparty, hier was wir auch keine Sekunde bereut haben! Abends ist am Strand auch so was los, nur eben ohne Drogen. Um wirklich gut zu essen gibt es hier nicht viel! Außer die Palita Lodge, die Preise sind nicht zu teuer und die Qualität ist super! What a fantastic beach! We... More

The fullmoon party was amazing. Lots of food , drinks and friendly tourists. there is a entry fee of 100 bahts for the full moon party. the whole beach (about 1.5kms) is full of tourists (mostly English) partying. We found the place pretty safe and No drugs. A must visit

It you are 25 or under this place will appeal, or a party goer. But when the party is out of town there is not much going on. Like it has a dual personality.

So this is about the beach itself, nice bay, nice view, very windy, impossible nearly to swim, very strong waves, constant thrashing of the waves on the shore is extremely loud so it's far from relaxed. All in all this place is quite literally good for Full Moon and that's it in my opinion. We left after 2 days, prefer... More

Pay attention: DO NOT TAKE THIS TOUR!! specially if the name of the "captain" of the boat is a character name "Han". Lets start by saying that there is no speed boat, this tour is made on a ferry-type boat. They advertize it as 45 minutes trip to go and 45 minutes to come back, IT IS NOT TRUE. To... More

Amazing time! While parties occur on this beach every night, the Full Moon Party is a must if you are in Koh Phangan backpacking. Be careful of the fire jump rope!
