General Information about Koh Phangan
Located between Koh Tao and Koh Samui, Koh Phangan is famous for its Full Moon Party (fullmoonparty-thailand.com
) that takes place the nights of full moon on Hat Rin beach. Many revelers go there these days and many of those who appreciate the island for its many other assets avoid the palce on full moon nights. Koh Pha Ngan beaches have nothing to envy to the one of the neighbours islands. With forests and waterfalls, or its temples ( some are in caves ), Koh Phangan has much appeal. less crowded ( except for Full Moon partys ) than Koh Samui and Koh Tao, Phangan get backpackers preference. The low tides, especially from June to September can make it hard to swim except on Thong Nai Pan Noi beach. Haad Salad, Bootle beach and the area around Koh Ma island are the best spots for snorkeling.
Koh Phangan is also close to two of the best dive sites in Thailand, Sail Rock and Chumphon Pinnacle and near the Ang Thong Marine National Park.
The months of October and November are particularly rainy in Koh Phangan, Koh Tao and Samui, better focus on other months of the year to come here.
