Koh PhaNgan


Guide To North West

Chaloklum village is the north's main fishing port and has a wealth of inexpensive seafood restaurants serving fresh delicacies such as locally caught squid. There are also a few bars to visit and Chaloklum is home to Paradise Waterfall, a fantastic hillside nightclub.

The maritime roots have encouraged several dive schools to locate here and there are numerous dive and snorkelling sites nearby. It is fairly mountainous and gets more rugged as you head east, thus there are a number of trais to climb if you're into walking, waterfalls to visit and the Chinese Temple just outside the village.

Chaloklum beach itself is very long, the village is located in the middle and good value resorts flank either side of the scenic bay. Further east Haad Khom has a small coral reef and both good value and high end resorts; the dirt road is hard to negotiate without a 4WD, but boat taxis run regularly from the pier in Chaloklum.
