Hiking and Trekking on Koh Phangan

Hiking and Trekking on Koh Phangan Leisurely nature walks along forest trails (or many more adventurer treks for the experience hikers) are another way to discover this island's beauty. Hiking and trekking around Koh Phangan's almost unexploited interior are available all around the island and most people will embark on a short journey between beaches at the very least. The eastern coast is the best place for this adventurous activity and there is a route that links Haad Rin and Haad Wai Nam beaches which is enjoyed by many people staying in the area for the Full Moon Party.

To explore the central, mountainous part of the island head to Khao Ra mountain, hight at 627 metres is the highest point of the island. There is a viewpoint on the top overlooks Chaloklum and Thong Nai Pan. When weather is good, views of Ang Thong Marine Park and even Koh Tao in the distance can be enjoyed. To reach the highest top, we recommend you the hiking trail starting at Baan Madeuawaan. While trekking you can enjoy the beautiful nature, the sounds of birds, swaying leafs and stunning views. Hikes with a local guide is recommended – which should cost in the region of 500 baht per day.

Than Sadet - Ko Pha-Ngan National Park next to Haad Sadet beach, also has a net of trails to the island’s biggest waterfall. For the really adventurous there is a trek from Haad Khom to Bottle (Haad Khuad) beach. It takes about two hours through rocky boulder-littered jungle. If your power is enough continue to Thong Nai Pan beach - two hours more.

Kayaking in Koh Phangan

Kayaking in Koh PhanganCanoes and kayaks are available for rent at most resorts and beaches for 100-150 Bath/hour and it’s well worth exploring the beautiful coastline via your own paddle power. The waters off the northwest shores are more calm and paddle-friendly than the rough and rocky east coast. The best time to do it is late afternoon, when you can also catch the gorgeous sunset – but play it safe – stay close to shoreline and please take note of the fact that going with a current means fighting it all the way back.

Easy and interesting trips can be made around Haad Yao, Haad Salad and Koh Ma island, from Ao Chaloklum bay to Haad Khuat (Bottle) Beach and from Haad Rin to Haad Khontee. Waterproof camera bags are for sale in Thongsala and Haad Rin. Don't forget to bring water and suncream.

Explore the Island on a Motorbike

Explore the Island on a MotorbikeA great way to experience Koh Phangan Island is by renting a motorbike and spending at least half a day riding around to see the beaches, its coastline, rugged hills, waterfalls, villages, green mountains and fishing boats in the bays. Scooters are easily rented from most hotels and shops. It is hard not to stop to take photo when passing through this unique scenery.

Travelling around the island is one of most fun things you can do, but beware – many of the island's roads are not paved. Sturdy shoes and long trousers are a prerequisite.

Checkout Thong Nai Pan on the east coast, reputed to be the best beach on the island, think white sand and turquoise sea. Find a deserted spot on Thong Sadet beach to stop for a swim in waterfalls. In the northern part of the island the terrain gets more mountainous, and the roads a little more bumpy.

Sailing, Windsurfing and Catamaran

Sailing, Windsurfing and CatamaranSetting sail doesn’t require much planning on Koh Phangan. Several hotels and resort on the island can help you arrange the necessary equipment. The west coast of Koh Phangan is particularly good for sailing and windsurfing, as the strong offshore winds offer a challenge. There are few places offering sailing trips and tuition, with one operation renting Hobie style Catamarans and Lazer sailing boats, available all year at Baan Tai and Nai Wok beaches. Catamarans are also available at the high-end resorts at Thong Nai Pan beach.

Windsurfing happens to be more popular in Koh Phangan than sailing. Its steady wind and constant currents create conditions perfectly suited to a combination of speed and manoeuvres. For professionals, the winds over Ao Nai Wok beach are always a few knots stronger than elsewhere. The sport itself combines rules and aspects of both sailing and surfing but to steer a sail attached to a surfboard requires some serious skills. Baan Tai's waters are always suitable but the dry season serves you the best.

ATV Riding

ATV RidingWhile the haphazardly paved roads on Koh Phangan can be extremely dangerous for motorcyclists, they serve as an ideal playground for ATV riders. Swerving turns, bumping dirt roads, forking paths and a lush wilderness backdrop combine to make this a fun and thrilling experience. But do exercise caution as you will be sharing the road with songtaew drivers, who won’t stop or make way for any other vehicles in their path.

You can rent ATV's from L'Oasi Musical Grill next to Paradise Waterfall to explore off the beaten track. Otherwise, Phangan ATV Adventure Tour (Open: 09:00-17:00 (daily); GET ON ATV in Baan Khai in island’s southwest, tel: +66 77 377 340, mobile: +66 80 6479 5931) offer tuition in their dedicated training field before a guided tour along real off-road forest trails and dirt tracks to explore the natural beauty around Koh Phangan island. A fun choice for a bunch of friends or the whole family.
