We stayed at Ko mah resort and so spent two weeks on this beach. The water is beautiful without waves and safe enough for children. The beach area is big enough with an option of renting umbrellas and deck chairs. There’s a few restaurants here with an array of different cuisines.
The causeway to the island is idyllic and a perfect photo opportunity.

A perfect chilled location.

The island is very nicely situated in the north of Ko Phangan. Easy to get there by scooter—> the perfect means of tranport on the island. BUT.,,,, please local government CLEAN YOUR BEACHES!!!!!!

Your biggest assets are your beaches and nature on the island and you are spoiling it. Put at least trash cans on the beaches and things wil improve. I understand that most trash coms from the ocean, but in the end it starts with somebody littering….

Koh Ma is a beautiful beach at the north-western tip of Koh Phangan. It's actually a small island connected to Phangan by a small sand bar about 200 meters long.
They offer snorkeling there, but we didn't find anything worth snorkelling for.
There are a couple of resorts there to stay overnight. We didn't stay there, so we can't comment on them.
There are day-trips in Phangan for 500 baht (about $16) and they all stop at Koh Ma for 1-2 hours,

At this time of year especially, there is no snorkeling. The water is white from stirred up sand and silt. All I’ve seen is dead coral and seaweed. I’m a dive instructor and read a lot of old reviews about this place. Don’t bother!!!!

To get here you have to enter through the resort whose beach belongs to.
The beach is very quiet and offers a variety of massages and fruit shakes for good prices.
koh Ma is an island connected to the mainland with a thin beach strip (about 15 meters) that gets covered and exposed with the tide.
Inside the water there is a clear view of the corals and sea life and is very recommended to bring snorkels with you

We saw pictures at the internet and was amazed, by the beauty of this beach. We rent a car and after 45 min we get there. The difference between the beach we saw and the reality is too big. Someone did a great photoshop!;(
I will not recommend this beach.

Kho Ma was a little tricky to get to because of the new construction but once there it is beautiful! I would recommend going as soon as possible because they are really building up the surrounding area and I'm sure it will become very crowded in the future! The water is perfect and the pathway beach to a nearby island that comes during low tide is awesome!

Breath taking!!!!! Come at 11 am like I did so it’s not as crowded. Around 3-4 pm the beach fills up so taking unique pictures gets harder. Loved my stay here and couldn’t recommend more to anyone to take this trip! Worth it totally!!!

Koh Ma is a very nice little beach with several restaurants and places to stay. We arrived at low tide and found it difficult to walk out to the deeper water. There were many sharp rocks! Suggest coming when the tide is higher.

Need to swim out quite a bit to snorkeling without a risk of hitting coral with your fins...but it was not a difficult swim...Futher out...there are some nice hard coral at 5m deep... there are lots of fish there too...beyond the 5-6 m coral will be a slight drop off to 13m...no coral there...so stick to 5-6m line
