The Ultimate Guide To The 6 Best Koh Phangan Beaches
Out of all the Koh Phangan Beaches, Bottle Beach is the hardest to get to. It is so worth the tricky journey because it truly is a slice of paradise. The powdery white sand and huge boulders that section off the beach makes this place feel like a secluded haven.
Bottle Beach was definitely one of our best beaches on Koh Phangan.

Haad Rin Beach is where it’s happening on the island. With chilled beach vibes throughout the day, lively fire shows at night outside the beachfront bars, this is one of the most visited Koh Phangan beaches on the whole island.
Haad Rin Beach in the day time is one of the most stunning Koh Phangan beaches too. Considering this is the spot where all the parties happen, we didn’t expect it to be so beautiful.
There are restaurants and shops located in the town of Haad Rin which is just few minutes walk away from the ocean.
You definitely won’t run out of the things to do in the tourist hub of Haad Rin.

Leela Beach is one of the Koh Phangan beaches that we didn’t expect to love so much. The ocean was super calm and the soft stretch of sand only had the residents from the beach resorts. It was the perfect atmosphere for those who want to chill and sunbathe on the beach all day, with the odd dip in the crystal clear sea.
Like a lot of the best beaches on Koh Phangan, you have to enter through a resort. We chose to enter at the northern end of Leela Beach through Cocohut Resort because this is the end where the famous swing is.
Also, at this end of the Beach, there is a walk way that goes out into the bluest parts of the ocean. It’s perfect for those tropical holiday shots.
Chaloklum Beach situated right on the northern tip of the island was one of the biggest Koh Phangan beaches we visited.
We were greeted by a huge stretch of pristine white sand and a very quiet beach area.
Directly behind the beach are plenty of pop up cafes available for lunch, and the taxi boats hover in the ocean waiting to deliver people to and from Bottle Beach.
It’s definitely up there for us as one of the best beaches on Koh Phangan. With an easy drive through the centre of the island, there’s no excuse not to visit.

Haad Salad beach is a stunning coastal strip of pure white sand. The ocean is crystal blue and even at peak times, it’s not so busy. There were a lot of families at this beach, which makes sense when there are resort backing onto the coast.
If you’re looking to take some romantic or even fun shots, Haad Salad Beach Koh Phangan has it’s very own oddly shaped palm tree as well as some cool beach swings too.
One of the main attractions, and reason many tourists visit Haad Mae Haad Beach, is the ability to walk over to Koh Ma Island at low tide.
We headed down at around midday and the golden trail lead all the way up to the huge green island.
Koh Ma has become a symbolic photo spot on Koh Phangan. It’s a place that’s used on many postcards and tourist desks around the country.
Surrounded by reefs, Koh Ma is a known spot for snorkelling. Also, rumour has it you can trek to the peak for a killer viewpoint!
Haad Mae Haad & Koh Ma is up there as another one of the best beaches on Koh Phangan.
