great quite beach for romantic runaway. you will witness unbeliveable sunsets!.. we started our honeymoon at this beach and quickly missing it.. (though we are still in ko phanghan).
Some nice corals close to the beach. but if you continue about 50-70 meters from the shore the water suddenly gets very deep, tat this point you have a very good coral formations for snorkeling..
nice clean and clear water, however the beach it self is not very clean. no big resorts there to send their army of workers to clean the beach every morning... this is not a let down since the place in overall great. we enjoyed everyminute of our stay.
location location location. in my opinion the beach located in a very good position on the west side. 15 minutes ride to thongsala and 15 minutes bike ride to haad salad (another great beach for snorkeling. some very nice restaurants near by like Big Mama, authentic and delicious thai food with very good prices..
I would suggest for anyone who is planning a trip in ko phanghan to get a hotel in chao pao and rent a bike for 200 baht a day and go go go explore the west side of the island!! than move to the other side for couple of days. thong nai pan is a great place. check it out!
