Area Attractions
 Mae Haad
 Time: 15 Minutes by walk, 5 Minutes by motorbike
 Distance: 1 KM
 Had Mae Had has recently gone through a lot of changes, it has greatly improved road connections and there is a village building up behind it. There are quite a few resorts, but as the beach is fairly long, there’s still enough room for solitude. It has sunset views over Koh Ma and the waters and coral reef that surround it are designated as a National Marine Park as they are so rich in sea life, with turtles and reef sharks (harmless) easily spotted. The beach can be a bit rough in places, but is beautiful all the same, and has a sand bar that you can walk across to reach Koh Ma.
 
 Koh Ma
 Time: 15 Minutes By foot , 5 Minutes by motorbike
 Distance: 1 KM
 Koh Ma is a small island connected to Koh Phangan by a sandbar on Had Mae Had beach. Easily accessible, Koh Ma has only a few bungalows. Many people refer to this island as "Paradise" and find it extremely hard to leave. Koh Ma is surrounded by an amazingly colourful, living reef. It's an ideal location for snorkeling or learning how to dive
 
 Chaloklum Bay
 Time: 15 Minutes by motorbike, 30 Minutes by walk
 Distance: 5 KM
 Local fish market, Fishing Village. You can buy Dry fish product, fresh Seafood from here.
 
 Haad Khom
 Time: 20 Minutes by motorbike
 Distance: 10 KM
 Had Khom is a pretty little beach on the west side of Chaloklum Bay, known for it’s laid back vibes and is popular with long-termers looking to get away from the hoardes. The dirt road from Chaloklum is badly rutted in places and is hard to tackle on a moped unless you are an experienced rider, better on a dirtbike or a 4WD vehicle, or you can take a boat taxi from Chaloklum. Had Khom is a popular spot for snorkelling due to the extensive living coral reef that protects the bay from the incoming seas coupled with the fact that it is the last beach that has coral before the conditions change further round the coast and become unfavourable for such sea life. Local dive schools from Chaloklum and snorkelling boat trips often use the area due to its proximity, outstanding beauty and great variety of different corals. Due to the presence of the reef, swimming is still effected by the tides here, and in the lower tidal season, (March to November) you will have to wait until the daily high tide arrives if you want to swim out and over the reef to see the brilliant Day-Glo underwater world that surrounds the South-Westerly and Northern coasts of the island. As the beach faces the North, it isn’t possible to see either sunset or sunrise.
 
 Had Thong Lang
 Time: 20 Minutes by motorbike
 Distance: 10 KM
 Had Thong Lang or "Golden Deserted Beach" is exactly that. At present there is still no permanent settlers there, although recently a couple of huts have gone up, but are rarely inhabited. If you’re lucky enough to meet the irregular residents, they are very friendly and welcome visitors. It has a shallow coral bay with a coral reef that creates a beautiful lagoon in high tidal seasons, over the reef there is good snorkeling, but be careful not to damage the corals if you are going to cross the reef at low tide. It’s a great beach for a day visit if you’re looking for a bit of true desert island isolation. It can be reached either by hiring a long tail boat from the nearby fishing village of Chaloklum, or by bike / taxi and a short walk. To access the beach on land, take the main (concrete) road from Mae Had to Chaloklum, about 300 meters up the road there is a left turn onto a dirt road with a small sign directing you to the beach. The dirt road is about 400 metes long and is fairly rough, especially during monsoon, but it can be negotiated on a moped if you’re used to one; stop at the top of the bay and walk down to the beach. Due to its Northerly location, neither sunset nor sunrise can be seen from this beach.
