Summary of the Beach Inspectors
The beach of Phak Nam Bay is also appropriately known as Relax Beach. You will find here an oasis of calm, ideal for relaxing. Most tourists stay in the small houses of the hotel complex directly at the beach, where they can settle down on loungers under the palm-trees and other trees here. A nice restaurant and beach bar belong to the hotel, but these are also open to day visitors. Just off the beach in the crystal clear, turquoise-blue water is a coral reef which is fantastic for diving and snorkelling.

Phak Nam Bay - Idyllic bay with lots of luxury and a lovely coral reef

You can reach the beach of Phak Nam Bay on the island of Koh Phi Phi Don either in comfort by taxi-boat or by taking the more strenuous hiking trail, from which you can enjoy a lovely view. This passes the Phi Phi viewing points which really are a must for any holidaymaker on the island.

Phak Nam Bay is also called Relax Beach after the hotel complex of the same name which dominates the rear of the bay. The name is very suitable, as the atmosphere at the beach is indeed very relaxed. Most holidaymakers stay in the pretty wooden huts of the complex which are spread out along the hills. Only a few day trippers come to this bay and hardly any tour groups. It is therefore comparatively quiet here and the sound of the engines of the boats can only be heard intermittently.

The beautiful, shimmering, turquoise water is ideal for swimming and splashing about. The sand is beige in colour and is in parts mixed with shells, small colourful stones and corals. The corals are from the reef which is not far from the beach and which provides an exciting underwater world. It is great for snorkelling and there is also a local diving school which will take you to the wonderful diving locations of the national park nearby. In addition, you can also hire kayaks here and explore the coast like this.

Many visitors to the beach simply relax on the loungers in the shade of the palm-trees and other trees here. There is also a restaurant with a big terraced area offering a large variety of dishes. Next to it is a beach bar where you can enjoy freshly made juices and delicious cocktails. Phak Nam Bay is ideal for anybody who wants to spend a few days relaxing at a dream beach with a breath-taking underwater world.
