Pristine jungle shrouded beaches and stunning views of Anthong Marine National Park combine to make Taling Ngam one of the most picturesque parts on the island.
There are a couple of cheap bungalow options and a highly regarded seafood restaurant, Five Islands, but it is a 20-30 minute drive even from Nathon, the nearest town of any significance and almost an hour away from Chaweng.
That said, if you're after a relaxing, lazy, holiday above all else, Taling Ngam is hard to beat. Given that the area is also fast becoming a residential property hotspot, this may not be the case for too much longer.
