“Beautiful, pristine beach”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Off the beaten track & great for swimming. A must to visit if you go to Koh Phangan & like a quiet spot for a couple of days.

“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

This beach is beautiful. Nice white sand, clear water, good swimming or bathing. It was busier than we expected from the reviews. Around ten taxiboats were berth as it is the most easy way to get there. But still less people than at other beaches, en most of the taxiboats leave around 4pm. The cheapest way is to go by bike and hike. We parked our motorbike at the little parking spot at the left side around 50m beyond coconut beach resort. Then walk straight ahead ( concrete road ends) en you'll see the start of the trail at your right hand marked by plastic bottles. It will take you about 1h (fast) - 1.30 (slow). It is mountain up mountain down so don't do it when you are in bad shape or injured or something, and wear stable sandals or shoes. Having done several hikes in se Asia I think the trail itself is not that special, but there are some nice viewpoints.

“Secluded and took awhile to get there”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

We scooted here, but decided to leave our scooter and walk the rest of the way down since the road was steep and dirt. Did not want to slip or fall. Was a long sweaty walk down, but it was quiet and had alot of foliage. Once we finally reached the beach, it was beautiful and secluded. We arrived a bit late in the day, around 430 pm so I'd suggest getting there much earlier to really enjoy it. We ordered a cold drink and just swung together in the swing hanging on a tree at the end of the beach.
The walk back was strenous as it was uphill, you definitely get a good workout!
