Thong NaiPan Noi Beach

Thong Nai Pan Noi and Thong Nai Pan Yai are twin coves that form a scenic double bay and are the most popular beaches in the east and sunrise side of the island. Both beaches are the image of paradise with softly curved white sand bays surrounded by mountains covered in rich tropical rainforest. The surrounding mountains make these beaches fairly inaccessible with a steep and rutted dirt road the only overland option. 



Activities: There is no coral reef on the east coast of the island, and it is possible to swim at both beaches all year round, though Thong Nai Pan Noi is the best as It has the deepest bay. There is little to 
see in the way of marine life, but there are some decent waves for body surfing. Thong Nai Pan Noi is the most popular of the two beaches with a bohemian vibe and has a small village with some quirky bars and restaurants. People get up early for sunrise as it’s breathtaking.
