Koh Phangan Waterfalls are a sight to see if you catch them in the right season. So here’s our guide to the top waterfalls in Koh Phangan and when to visit.
Koh Phangan Waterfalls – Top 3 Waterfalls In Koh Phangan
Phaeng Waterfall is the greatest and tallest waterfall on the island, and we’re sure in the right season it can be satisfyingly beautiful.
We unfortunately visited at the end of July when it was super dry, with no water whatsoever. Massive FAIL!
We explored the grounds and found that there are a few Koh Phangan Waterfalls located within the same park as Phaeng Waterfall. So make sure you plan your trip accordingly!
Paradise Waterfall was definitely our favourite Koh Phangan waterfall. Although there wasn’t really any fast flowing water due to dry season, the place had a real good vibe.
There were locals jumping from a rope swing and the kids were having a real good time interacting with the tourists.
The younger ones were teaching all the tourists how to backflip from the rope swings and they certainly showed us how’s it’s done.
It required no hike and is guaranteed to have a huge swimming hole at the entrance so this one is always a hit whatever the season!

Wang Sai Waterfall is one of the lesser known spots on the island.
We weren’t sure what to expect, having done no research on the falls beforehand, but when we arrived we were greeted by a definite up and coming tourist spot!
Bamboo entrance gates and huge activity signs paved the way. Then it was just a short 150 metre walk to Wang Sai Waterfall itself.
Like the other waterfalls on Koh Phangan we unfortunately visited in dry season. So the water wasn’t amazing. Although we did get a glimpse of just how beautiful it could be in high season!

July – September!
We figured that the best time to visit any waterfalls in Koh Phangan is just after monsoon season or after a heavy rainfall. So be sure to check the weather forecast beforehand to save an underwhelming experience like ours.
It’s said to be monsoon season from July to September. So just make sure to check the climate and double check with locals to see if it’s worth the stop during your trip.
