General Information

Than Sadet Highlights

Than Sadet is located on the relatively undeveloped east coast of Koh Phangan and draws all kinds of people from all walks of life and from all over the world to enjoy the pleasures that this laid back corner of the world offers.The atmosphere is still simple, rustic, and slightly bohemian, with the emphasis on keeping in touch with the roots of nature around.

Than Sadet is translated "river of visited by Royals" as for more than a century Thai Kings would visit the area many times to walk up the waterfalls and bathe in the pools, they have even carved their initials on the granite rocks that grace the river. The area has since been declared a National Park due to it's historical importance and the abundant wildlife.

The sandy Than Sadet beach is perfect for relaxing and soaking up the sun, however you will find very little shade on the beach itself. The clear water and reasonable depth make it a popular snorkelling and swimming destination.

You can swim round to the neighbouring Thong Reng beach, which is smaller, but just as beautifu,l fringed with swaying palms and soft white sand. You can also walk back to Than Sadet via a bridge.
