While Koh Phangan is renowned for its famous party scene, it doesn’t take visitors long to realize there’s a lot more to this island than the Full Moon Party. Not only does it have a certain vibe that lowkey traps you (in a good way, of course), but it has so many things to do and places to see. Waterfalls, hikes, water sports, epic views — these are all in surplus on Koh Phangan. One of our favorite parts about this island is sunset time. People often make “sunset plans” which the rest of their day revolves around. So to make it easy on you, we’ve rounded up the best Koh Phangan sunset spots so you can enjoy the best time of day with ease!

This hilltop bar has expansive views of the lush greenery and coast of Koh Phangan, and even Koh Samui and Angthong!
