The island has many beautiful beaches – Baan Siam is located at the centre of the island’s road networks, making it a great base to explore them all from.

Phangan is best known for it’s Full Moon Parties but away from the bustle of the night-life in Haad Rin, you’ll find the rest of the island to be quiet and peaceful with a low-key night-life. Dine out on fresh seafood at the beach or visit Thong Sala’s markets for some authentic local food.


Apart from the beaches, there are a wide range of activities to keep you busy on Koh Phangan. They include:

  • Muay Thai (thai boxing) training
  • Scuba diving and snorkelling
  • Thai massage – get a massage or take a course to learn how

  • Boat trips
  • Watersports & Adventure Sports
  • Jewellery-making workshops
  • Thai Cooking Courses
  • Waterfalls & National Parks
