Obviously there is nothing secret about is beach. But with that name I was kinda expecting some no crowd kind of beach, secluded. But as soon as you step in you realize you are in a short strip of sandy beach dominated by a bar/restaurant with loud music all day and lots of people. The water is clear but do not even try to walk into the water without shoes, it's covered in spiky dead corals and rock and even with slippers the ground is so unheaven that you'll lose your balance every other step, forcing you to walk like a crab. If you walk southern you'll find a small hidden spot between the rocks that's usually empty, and further down a nudist beach. Average compared to other beaches in the North of the island.

Also known as Greg's beach, this beach is a little gem. It is quite small but it is sandy and the water is crystal clear. If you head to the south of the beach there are no rocks or sea cucumbers to worry about (at least at the time of writing). It is perfect for sunset and has two excellent bars/restaurants for food and 100 baht happy hour cocktails.

Its a very popular spot during the day so be prepared for crowds of people. Lovely spot to sit down and watch the sunset, would highly recommend. The restaurant has extremely friendly staff.

This is no secret beach! Of course people know about it, but still, it's a small beach that is super full with people. It's great if you want to sit exactly in the middle of the crown and swim with everybody.

One of the most beautiful beach in Koh Phangan, with nice bar and restaurant to have a drink or some food. Not too many people. Really good spot to see a beautiful sunset with a cocktail.

Nice beach, its not so secret though! A big sign tells you its there!
We parked on the rd as its a steep drop to the car park.
We walked to the right and found a mermaid statue and a swing.

Great for sunsets.
