Koh Phangan is split into five zones which is very impressive for such a small island. We suggest you visit all of them as they are all absolutely beautiful with something to offer for everyone. As we have reported previously this island is not just a party island any more…..
Zone 5 (West)
Zone 5 is classed as the healthy part of the island!
In fact Sri Thanu is famous for its yoga and spiritual schools and there is a certain 'calmness' in the air around this area. The main yoga schools attract hundreds of students a year, places like Samma Karuna, Ananda, Gaia Yogashala and Agama are all located on this side of the island and offer many different courses from TTC to detox retreats and lots of conscious courses.
There are a plethora of restaurants for all tastes including Vegan and Vegetarian and also great Western and Thai restaurants to enjoy. There are resorts ranging from basic to luxury depending on your budget and lots of houses to rent if you decide to stay longer.
This area is a mecca for vegan and vegetarian food. Places like Eat.co offer superb vegan comfort food that has the ability to satisfy even a meat lovers palette!
SriThanu is only a very short trip from Thong Sala and the bike ride along the coast is gorgeous with plenty of photos opportunities along the way - If you are on a motorbike then where your helmet and be slow as driving fast means you will miss some the stunning views but there are some steep hills to tackle.
There are still parties to enjoy up this part of the island, if you want to stay local at Pirates Bar where you can dance the night away to resident and international DJs or join in the more alternative gatherings on Zen beach most evenings.
Take a look at our conscious events listings for more information.
Along the coastline here in Hin Kong, a really stunning coast with views across the ocean to Samui and some of the best sunset spots on the island.
Hin Kong in recent years has become host to some of the most exsqusite restaurants including Baobab which offers high class french cuisine in a beautiful romantic setting and L'alcove is popular for its wine and live music nights.
Phangan Cove is a wonderful resort set on the perfect beach with an equally great restaurant tucked away down a track from the road in Sri Thanu.
This health and wellness area of Koh Phangan shows the other side of the island really well, it retains its magic and the spiritual side of things even add to that!
Om shanti om....
