Bottle Beach

This is one of the least accessible beaches on Koh Phangan and as a result, one of its most beautiful. You can get there and back by long tail boat from Chaluklum or, as many do, hike from the North side of the island.  

If you choose to hike, expect about an hour and a half hike. Follow the plastic bottles, which mark the hiking route (hence the name, Bottle Beach). 

Once at the beach, just relax and unwind as it is a relatively quiet beach with only a few people at any given time. There are a few beach restaurants to get yourself a cold Coconut, beer or soda water with lime.

The hike begins at Haad Thom (Coral Bay), on the North of Koh Phangan, outside Chaluklum. Go to the end of the road and park, then follow the signs for the jungle trail or walk down the path for the beach trail. Either hike is a bit strenuous and will take some exertion but the good news is that once there, you will enjoy some of the best peace and quite Koh Phangan has to offer. And you can take a taxi boat back!
