Hat Wai Nam

Beach in Ko Pha-Ngan

A small white-sand beach slung out between Hat Thian and Hat Yao on the more remote east coast, titchy Hat Wai Nam can be reached on foot from Hat Rin along the path up the mountain, but that's the long way round (you'll need four hours or more), and getting here by long-tail boat is advised. Expect a secluded beach with ravishing waters.
