Ban Tai (Koh Phangan) probably wouldn’t win the award for being the best of the island’s beaches but it is still a cracker, such is the quality of all of the beaches on this island.
It is also very nicely located for the main town of Thong Sala as well as the party town of Haad Rin close by to its south.
The lapping waves on Ban Tai are not quite as see-through as on some of the other beaches on the island but it is still a great place to lay back in a hammock and relax.
On clear days there are good views out to Ang Thong National Marine Park which is a nice little bonus that is easy on the eye. Trips to this paradise national park area can be arranged from the island if it’s a visit you fancy making during your stay.
More than any other type of traveller, backpackers love it on Ban Tai as there are some great budget accommodation options here. If you like to stay right down on the beach then you’ll have it made on Ban Tai, Koh Phangan.
