PhaNgan is full of outdoor adventure and most of it can be done
on a few Baht. Rich coral reffs run along the north-west coast
of the island, supporting a vibrant place to snorkel and one of
the cheapest and least-crowded places to dive in Thailand. There
are fishing trips, around the island boat trips and loads of watersports
on offer including kayaks, catamarans and fishing.
island has acres of undisturbed tropical rainforest and a wild
jungle interior. There are overnight mountain treks to the top
of Khao Ra and coastline walks making it possible to beach hop
round the whole island. There are also several Thai boxing schools,
gyms and Thai boxing stadiums in both Thongsala and Haad Rin.
Koh PhaNgan is great for cycling around and if you are an experienced
motorcyclist it offers some fun rides. There are loads of temples
to visit, spa and meditation retreats and it's also a pretty good
place to do bugger all!
