Chaloklum Diving has worked closely over the years with a few of the better bungalows and resorts on Koh Phangan. If you intend to go scuba diving or to make that PADI course with us, here are a few convenient places to stay.
|Chaloklum Village resorts are mainly located along the beach, no more than a 5-10 minute walk away from town with a choice of good restaurants, a few bars, shops, etc. They are also more convenient for our boat dive trips, which leave from Chaloklum pier.|
Mae Haad Beach and Koh Ma
|Mae Haad Bay and Koh Ma is still our favourite spot on Koh Phangan. It’s situated on the North West corner of the island with a nice coral reef to explore.|
|Haad Salad Beach is the next bay down the West coast of Koh Phangan. It has a nice, rather busy beach enclosed by coral reef – now the location of a few luxury resorts.|
Haad Yao and Ao Chaophao
|Haad Yao (literally “Long Beach”) and Ao Chao Phao are located to the South of Haat Salat, further down the coast with a wide variety of resorts, bars and restaurants.|
|Thongsala is the main town and ferry port of Koh Phangan with numerous banks, booking offices, a Post Office, a wide range of restaurants, bars and shops, plus a variety of other entertainments.|
In the rainy season our diving trips sometimes depart from the pier here too.
|Baan Tai is in the South of Koh Phangan, quiet and peaceful yet convenient for both Thongsala and Haad Rin full moon partying.|
Snorkelling or scuba dives are not possible here, as the reef starts a long, long way from the beach.
