We were there for one afternoon and it was great. Quiet and yet full of people. Clear and deep water, so you can swim easily.

I think this is the best beach I have ever visited. It is not over crowded (yet) and has a good selection of bars and restaurants. The sand is super soft and the water crystal clear. There are massage places dotted along the beach too...More

This place is like a heaven on earth. Remote beach in Ko Pa Ngan. We love the beautiful sand and quiet place to relax. 2 nights stay is recommended

If you stay on Koh Phangan and are not on a tight budget, I would definitely recommend staying here. There is a good selection of upmarket hotels and very nice restaurants. But also the scenery at the beach is great. After driving around the island...More

We took a tour around the island to explore all the beaches. This one is so quiet and beautiful that it ranks no 1 for us :-)

Just back from 2 weeks on Thong Nai Pan Noi with family ranging in age from 12 to 71. We ate at the Luna Lounge twice, superb food, attentive service and wonderful ambience we were all made to feel so welcome

staying at one of the resorts on this beach gives you time to soak in this beach and have a ride out with a kayak to see all areas and the adjoining bay. the water is relatively clean and not too busy

The people who run this place are very nice and gave me the reception office chair and it's right on one of the most beautiful beaches. Not too busy, little paradise!!!

which beach?! Ko Lanta, Ko Pha Ngan, Ko Phi Phi, Ko Chang? (2 Replies)
Hi guys, been to Thailand 10 years ago, met my boyfriend in BKK and we are returning for our honeymoon in Aug 2010...need some help picking the perfect chill out spot...been to Ko Chang was ok, but not that pretty looking. Not Samui, too tacky and 'Brits abroad'. We loved Ko Pha Nhan, Thong Nai Pan Noi - it was our favourite (scared of returning though as have heard its changed a lot). We want to spend 5 nights on a beach, this is what we need.. 1. somewhere not too difficult to...More

thanks for your great reply, it really is helpful to get someone else's perspective on it. I checked your photos out and thong nai pan noi still looks lovely, I guess no amount of development will ever ruin that view, I just love it. so I think its a winner! will have a look at the accom there and see what i come up with. thanks again.
How to get from east to west coast (6 Replies)
I am staying in Thong Nai Pan noi for 3 nights and then want to stay on the west coast, Haad Salad, for a few more nights. What is the best way to get from one side to the other, boat, taxi?

Take a taxi to Thong Sala and then another to Haad Salad.

Best way to get from Koh Samui (Lamai) to Thong Nai Pan Noi? (2 Replies)
Hi, We're a couple traveling with an 8 month old baby from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan on Jan 24th. What's the best way to get there? I read about the THong Nai Pan Express, does it run in January? Also, it says you have to wade through the water - is there anyone that can help with luggage _ baby and stroller or are we better off going on the regular ferry and taking the shared ride up from the pier? Thanks for your input!

Hi, Apparently the Thong Nai Pan Express runs in January. It departs from Mae Nam which is a songtaow ride away from where you are staying. The water is not deep and many people who travel on the small boat carry suitcases etc. If you in any doubt take the Lomprayah catamaran to Thong Sala and then songtaow to Thong Nai Pan. Anyway, the chances are you'll get some help !
