Thansadet Beach

Here the famous Than Sadet river meanders down the mountainside through the dense jungle and exits into the sea beside MaiPenRai restaurant. The river and waterfalls once visited by their Majesties King V, VII and IX, who carved their initials on the huge granite rocks that grace this river, have now become one of the most tranquil and popular places on the island to visit and relax. Parts of Thansadet beach and Waterfall due to these royal connections are National Park land. A short walk across the bridge and over the hill, brings one to the neighbouring smaller beach of Thong Reng, infringed with beautiful palms, and soft white sands.

This corner of Than Sadet has a unique, simple rustic feeling, that of the old Koh Phangan and is surrounded by wild jungle behind and a coast line of rugged wildness - ideal for treks and boat trips to the neighbouring beaches on the East coast of Ko Pha-ngan. The atmosphere in Thansadet is still simple, rustic, and slightly bohemian, with the emphasis on keeping in touch with the roots of nature around. This can be felt whether sitting in the restaurant, enjoying ones meal, while a Bharan meanders past in the river, or sitting on the verandah of ones bungalow where every effort has been made to incorporate the beauty of the surrounding natural features into the design of the rooms.
