“One of the better beaches.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

The beach is one of the better beaches on the island, but the water is shallow and almost impossible to really swim in.However, there are some great bbq's in the evening in the restaurants dotted along the beach. Also a place to visit for Thai massages - 300 bhts for traditional thai massage. The path down to the beach, via Myway bungalows, can be a little scary with the dogs at night.

“If carlsberg made beaches...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

possibly the best beach I have been to. it is stunning, and not overdeveloped at all. It would be a great place to stay. there are some nice beach bars. the sand is super soft. There is good snorkelling around the rocks to the left and a couple of dive shops on the beach.

If you were to stay there its about 15 mins in a cab to the main ferry, and about 30 mins to the full moon party.

the beaches either side are also spectacular - haad yao is simmilar but a bit more lively

“Calm and peaceful !!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We went to Koh Phangan for Full Moon party and stayed in Haad Salad area. This beach is very perfect for getting back to your senses after full moon party. we were too hangovered on the next day of full moon party.
Then, we spent a peaceful afternoon here just sitting & lying in the shallow warm water. It was pure bliss enjoying the whole afternoon, Plenty of options for food on the beach. I would highly recommend this for a calm day or the best for getting ready for your travels after a full moon party night !!!
