Where are your favourite sunset spots? Everyone has their own, here are a selection of some of the best places to catch the sun’s evening performance…
One of the best places for sunset for sure. A ‘must do’ if you are only on Phangan for a few days.
They have a large comfortable seating area with thai cushions to relax on and enjoy the high views at sunset.
The pier and bay itself is beautiful, the sea is usually flat and there’s no hills around, it’s a plain so you can see a lot of it.
Ku Club/Beach Village
On Ban Tai beach this spot is especially nice if they are playing music.
Grab a nice cocktail from Beach Village’s Tiki Bar and enjoy the view over to Samui to watch a spectacular sunset whilst the local thai’s collect shellfish in the shallow water.
Great for a sunset as you can see the neighbouring island in front and you have a stereotypical island swing hanging off of a lazy palm tree to chill on.
Phangan Great Bay
A very quiet place if you sit on the beach outside the resort. It is also dog friendly as there is a pack of dogs that live there but they’re chillin.
Friendly staff at the bar if you want to get a drink as well.
Probably one of the best places to enjoy sunset and they have happy hour from 4 - 6pm.
For many of us locals that don’t normally get to enjoy such a luxurious setting the two for one offer makes it a worthwhile investment for sunset.
On the road to Secret Beach
Just before you go down the hill to Secret Beach there is a place to stop on the left side but it is narrow so be careful to bike the bike well.
You can see a mile or two in front of you and you are very high up, it’s a peak in the hill. An amazing view of sunset.
