Where is it?
In the north of the island Koh Phangan, Thailand.
Why should I visit?
The beach feels like you’re on a deserted island in the middle of the sea – it’s a little hidden gem of paradise…with clear sea, white sand and surrounded by jungle – so cool.
Throughout the day people come and go by taxi boat, but other than a couple of small resorts dotted around, the beach is really quiet.
How do I get there?
The beach is pretttyyyy hard to access. You’ve got 2 options on how to get there – so take your pic.
By taxi boat – I travelled to the beach by boat. You hop on at Chaloklum Beach and the journey takes you about 10 mins. It costs 150 baht each, minimum 4 people.
By hiking – You can get to the beach by hiking from the next bay over (Haad Khom beach). However, this option will take you about 2 hours and I can imagine it is a pretty hard trek.
By 4×4 taxi – If you’re staying at Bottle Beach 2 bungalows you can request that they drive you through the jungle. I think this was 150 baht each too. Other resorts on the beach may offer this service too, so check when you book if you’re planning on staying.

If you’re going to take the journey to Bottle Beach, I cannot encourage you enough to stay over at the Bottle Beach 2 bungalows.
The collection of bungalows are set right on the beach – you literally open your window and all you can see is sand and sea. They are part of a little family-ran resort that also has a lovely restaurant/cafe – also set right on the beach.
The bungalows are very very simple, very shed-like but such an experience to stay in – I mean you only really sleep in them because you’re on the beach alllll day!
Travelling to Thailand? You can find my Thailand bucket list here to see what else to see and do.
We had 2 nights booked here, but as soon as we arrived – literally within 5 mins of being there – we extended out stay an extra 3 nights.
It’s such an experience and so so cheap, it would be silly not to stay here a little while. I would have loved to stay here forever, but a week would be ideal if you have other places to go.
Double room bungalow (as pictured) – £14 / £7 each if there is 2 of you
Quadruple family room – £33
There are also ‘nicer’ double rooms that cost a little more.
