Only thing to say is don't be put off by this entry point to Ko Phangan. It is pretty tacky and chamless. Venture forth, it gets better!

The beach is quiet if it's not time for the monthly full moon party. It is a good spot to visit for sundowners and the area has good restaurants to have supper at afterwards.

There are a couple of streets lined with shops / bars etc, but unless you are in the right frame of mind it's a little odd.

This is a beautiful beach but sadly it is over run by young 17-22 year old drunken tourists taking mushroom shakes and urinating all over the beach.
