    GREAT BEACH
    Absolutely loved this place. Soft, white sand beach that gently shelves into the crystal clear, warm shallow sea. Perfect. We stayed here in February for 8 days at the Limelight Village resort & could easily have stayed longer. It was fairly quiet at the time, but certainly not deserted. All the restaurants & bars along the beach & on the road behind the beach were all open. They were all basic "island life" bars & restaurants but served great food & drink at good prices. Highly recommended & I will definitely be back.

    Nice and Quite Beach !!
    During our day tour of Koh Phangan Island,our guide brought us here to spend some time. It was a beautiful long beach. There were few resorts and restaurants overlooking the sea. Boating facility was also available. The beach was quite long and very clean. Ideal for couples and families.

    My perfect beach
    My beach of choice in Thailand ever since I first came here back in 1996. The beach itself has not changed - beautiful white sand curves around the bay, which is enclosed by a magnificent backdrop of mountainous rainforest. The resorts dotted along the beach have been here many years. There is a proper paved road now, which connects the village to Tong Sala and the rest of the island, making it more accessible and busier in recent years. Particularly popular with families, Yai beach is nevertheless quiet and and serene compared to Haad Rin and some of the island’s other tourist hotspots. I’ve been coming here for many years and will continue to come back as long as I can.

This beach is just as lovely as many others on Koh Phangan, lol, really. You are spoiled with choice on this island! Transport can be difficult though, there are many stunning beaches that are easier to get to.

We loved this area, much more reasonably priced and less developed than Noi or some of the west coast.
Some resorts & shops have closed down, which is sad for the owners.
Beautiful beach, great places to stay, lovely locals,

This is a beautiful beach. Well worth the additional travel. Not busy when we visited. Golden sands, clear water and a sheltered position. Great for families but large enough to be peaceful for adults if you need to chill. There are watersports hire centres. We hired kyaks and paddled across the cove.
There are a few bars and restaurants to give enough variety along the beach, but it does not feel over developed.
The choice of accommodation is good although some places have not re-opened after covid and, hence, the beach was probably quieter. The 2C bar (up on the hill to watch the sunset) and the Flip Flop bar were standouts.
The village behind the beach has good eateries. The food court of four or five vendors, around a communal eating area, was particularly good. The village also has shops, to buy the basics, and good value laundries. It’s not as polished, or probably as expensive as Thong Nai Pan Noi. We enjoyed our four days here and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Fantastic beach with restaurants and bars. Quiet and friendly. The beach is clean and beautiful. We had a great stay just a few meters away and enjoyed days spent on the beach and in the sea.

This beach is perfect to relax and unwind. There are a few bars/ restaurants on the beach which sell drinks and food reasonably priced. We really enjoyed our time on this beach.
