Mae Haad on Koh Phangan, Thailand is growing fast and going through a lot of changes as a village is quickly building up behind it. Even with several existing resorts, there's still secluded sections of the beach. It’ a great spot to enjoy the sunset view over Koh Ma. The beach has a sand bar that you can walk across to reach Koh Ma. The sandbar is exposed during low tide and during high tide is still shallow enough to wade across.
The coral reef that surrounds Koh Ma is designated as a Marine Park. It’s rich in sea life, with turtles and other marine life and is a great place for snorkeling. There are plenty of places to eat, rent a kayak, mask, and snorkel or hire a boat. Nearby is 360 Bar with amazing views. When you turn off of the main road to go to Mae Haad, just head up the road towards Utopia Resort and look for the signs for 360 Bar.
