Chaloklum and Haad Mae Haad beaches are situated on the northwestern coast of Koh Phangan, which is a peaceful and exceptionally beautiful part of the island. Chaloklum Beach itself is 2.5 km long with a small village and pier in the middle. Colourful, long-tail fishing boats moor along the immediate shoreline while Chinese-style wooden restaurants, villas and shophouses line the main street. The pier is one of Koh Phangan’s favourite fishing locations and the surrounding mountains and hills create shelter from the wind, creating perfect conditions for wakeboarding.
Mae Haad features several bungalow operations with a couple of resorts on the beachfront. It has sunset views and a sand bar that connects it to Koh Ma at low tide at the northern end of the beach. Relaxed, quiet and atmospheric, Mae Haad’s tranquil character is the complete opposite to the brashness of Haad Rin on the opposite side of the island.
