Pirate Beach

Ultimate guide (July 2024)
Pirate Beach is a beach in the west of Phangan island, Thailand. This is one of the best beaches on the island. There are many trees and palms along the coastline, as well as bars and restaurants. Swimming is comfortable despite the problems of strong low tides. However, strong tides are everywhere in Koh Phangan. There is also 7eleven shop near the beach. And you can enjoy beautiful sunsets in the evenings! Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
This beach ranks #11 of the "Best beaches in Phangan"

Hotels [edit]

Near Pirate Beach, there is a good choice of hotels with room's fares ranging from US$40 to US$150 per night. Please note that the cheapest accommodation options don't have air conditioning. In the Thai climate, it can be very hard for most of tourists.

How to get there [edit]

You may get from Bangkok to Phangan island by Lomprayah high-speed catamaran. But the best is to fly to Samui island, and next get by ferry from Maenam beach to Phangan island.

There are two options to fly from Bangkok to Samui:

1. Direct flight to Samui Airport (USM). This way is most convenient, but also the most expensive.

2. Fly to Surat Thani airport (URT) by AirAsia low-coster. Then get by taxi (1200 bahts) to Donsak Pier. Then get to Samui by any ferry (Raja ferry is the best, but other services are also good). It is the best value for money way of getting to Koh Samui, but takes a little longer time, as the road from Suratthani airport to Samui takes a few hours.

When to go [edit]

The best time for a beach holiday in Pha-ngan island is a dry season from January to April, as well as second dry season from June to September.
