Haad Than Sadet is a small, secluded beach located about 16 kilometers east of Thong Sala, following the road that first leading to Than Sadet Waterfall. Hidden by steep hills roughly in the center of the eastern coast of Koh Pha Ngan, the beach has quite challenging access, so it's a perfect choice for an escape from the crowd and attracts the adventurous. Less than 200 meters long but quite wide, Haad Than Sadet is a tiny tropical paradise for a stress-free holiday in a stunning setting. Surrounded by crystalline water, it offers beautiful white sand, amazing sunsets and great snorkeling opportunities in the deep-blue waters of the bay. You will find some sun-beds in the beachfront restaurants and bars, where kayaks can also be rented. Some restaurants are set right on the sandy beach with breathtaking sea views and serves traditional Thai and Western dishes in a relaxed atmosphere. As for accommodation, the beach has some resorts with bungalows in Thai style scattered on the granite hillside and on the often deserted beach. There are not ATMs at Haad Than Sadet, and the electricity comes from generators that are switched off at the night time. Haad Than Sadet is part of Than Sadet Koh Phangan National Park which also includes the valley enclosed between high green hills where the Than Sadet river forms the Than Sadet Waterfall, which is the largest waterfall of the island. The park, free of charge, is a great place for trekking and discovering the flora and fauna of Koh Phangan. Besides being popular for its natural beauty and abundant wildlife, Than Sadet, meaning Royal River in Thai, is an important sacred place which also has historical significance. Than Sadet owes its reputation to King Churalongkorn, the Great Rama V, who came here many times to bathe in the pool at the base of the waterfalls. King Prajadhipok, the Great Rama VII, and the late King Bumipol Aduldej, the Great Rama IX, have also come to visit the place.
