Sunbathe and snorkel at Mae Haad Beach, a pristine white-sand shoreline. This long beach is serviced by several resorts and set in an area designated as a marine reserve. Just steps into the calm water, you will find yourself floating over a lively coral reef. Keep your eyes peeled for creatures like reef sharks and sea turtles. At low tide, walk across the sandbar to the small island of Koh Ma. Top off your visit with a relaxing massage right on the beach, or order a fresh seafood meal in one of the beachside restaurants. PutMae Haad Beach into our Ko Pha Ngan route planning site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
