Massage & Spa –

Traditional Thai massage, oil massage or foot reflexology can be found at most towns and villages, and at the more populated beaches you can often get a massage right on the beach.  Resorts like Santhiya Resort and Spa (Ayurvana Spa)and Rasanada Phangan Island in Thong Nai Pan and Sarikantang Resort on Leela Beach (Sarai Spa) offer high end spa treatments, aromatherapy massages, body wraps and facial or body scrub treatments.

Diving –

Several PADI certified dive shops are located around the island.  There are excellent dive sites around Koh Phangan, or you can take a short trip to nearby dive sites such as Sailrock and Ang Thong National Marine park.   With small groups and reasonable rates, Koh Phangan is one of the best places in the world to learn or practice the sport.

Snorkeling –

Snorkeling is an excellent way to get a glimpse of the beautiful underwater world around the island. There are many great snorkel spots on the island, especially on the north-west coast, where you can swim out from the beach.  One of the best spots is around Koh Maa, off Mae Haad.   Snorkeling equipment can be rented or purchased in Chaloklum Village or Thong Sala.

Boat Trips –

Boat trips around the island or to other islands can be arranged at travel agencies or by contacting water-taxis directly at piers.  At the east side of Chaloklum Village is a water taxi stand with boats that can take you to Bottle Beach and other secluded beaches along the north and east coast.

Temples –

There are several temples (“Wats” in Thai) on the island, all open to the public for (respectful) visits.  The newly renovated Wat at Chaloklum Village hosts events for all major Buddhist Holidays.  The Chinese Temple just outside of Chaloklum offers amazing views across the island and out to Koh Tao and the Ang Thong Marine Park.
