Had Som, Koh Phangan's picture perfect beach, has a stunning coral reef formation to explore and anyone willing to scuba dive or snorkel can take in its natural splendor. However, because of the shallow seabed near Koh Phangan's picture perfect beach, the best times for swimming are between the months of November and April.

With Had Som's ultimate seclusion, you can spend a quiet afternoon lazing on the white sand of Koh Phangan's picture perfect beach, soaking up the tropical sun and enjoying the quiet time.
