This large double bay boasts two of the best beaches on the island, with fine white sand backed by lush green mountains. The southern bay is the most protected while the northern one can be subject to swell.

Anchor on a sandy bottom in 6-8 metres in front of the big tree on the beach, or in the northen bay in 4 metres on sand. Both bays are quite developed now and the new paved road gives access to the entire Island if you rent a motorbike.

The Panviman Resort has a great infinity edge pool and superb views over the bays from the rocky headland that separates them. A short trek will take you to the Thaanprawet waterfall.
