Accommodation

Wonderful secluded bays at the NE of Koh Phangan. Excellent swimming beaches which some say the best on the island. Incredible views of many coconut trees, sands and rocks. There are two bays close each other. South is bigger. However both are quiet even at the Full Moon night and well secluded beautiful bays.
Most travelers go the south because more bungalows and cheaper.
Accommodation standard is good and slightly cheaper than the rest of island. There are all facilities what you need, such as bungalows, restaurants, shops, rental bikes(200-250B/day) and internet cafe(3B/min 10 min. min. very expensive)
