Many of the most beautiful beaches and coves on Koh Phangan are only accessible by boat. We highly recommend you start your journey in Thong Nai Pan or Thong Sala and take a cruise around the entire island. There are also water-taxis that will take you wherever you want to go for a reasonable fee (if you negotiate ahead of time). Do not skip this or you will be missing out on the best of Koh Phangan. There is an array of islands and national parks around Koh Phangan as well. Several tour operators arrange day tours to these areas.
