This is a beach with grey sand. Most of it is used by local fishermen and there are small places to stay. It has the usual litter all over it and there appears to be no effort to clean it up

A little fishing town located on the beach. Quiet and away from main stream tourists. Island hopping, eating fresh and the cheapest lobster / crabs with a few beers next to the beach sums up life in this getaway spot.

The conrast of Deep blue sea and the sand of Paniman stretched so long that it was a good panoramic view of either sun rise or sunset! The best!

There are some resorts on this beach where you can stay while planning your island hopping tour. It's a 2 hour boat ride from Codon Pier.
