Chaloklum Beach is easy to get to and best reached by scooter. We drove ourselves from Thong Sala Pier which took roughly 20 minutes. If you’re not confident on a scooter, there are also many places where you can rent a cool jeep. The jeeps are roughly 1000 Baht per day. We managed to rent our scooter for 180 Baht per day.
Where to stay
There are plenty of budget and luxury accommodation options all around Koh Phangan. We decided to stay near Thong Sala pier as it was close to the popular night markets and food markets. A nice budget accommodation option in this area is Tranquil Bungalows by Beck’s. You’ll have your own little bungalow close to everything that you need. A luxury option close by is also the popular Kupu Kupu Phangan Beach Villas which has an infinity pool overlooking the beautiful blue ocean.

What to expect at Chaloklum Beach Koh Phangan
Chaloklum Beach Koh Phangan is the perfect beach to spend your whole day at. This beach was one of our favourites as it looked and felt so perfect. If you’re looking to spend hours relaxing and cooling down in the clear blue water and sitting on thin white sand, then Chaloklum Beach is for you! The beach also has beautiful hills covered in palm trees and greenery. Chaloklum Beach is very relaxing and laid back due to the very small number of people that we saw. There are barely any spots for shade on this beach so be sure not to roast in the sun like we did.
Close to shore you’ll also notice some local fisherman boats which you can walk up to and take some cool photos with. The traditional Thai boats are also awesome to admire as they are a symbol of the Thai lifestyle and culture. You won’t have to go far to find food or drinks. There are a few small locally owned restaurants, as well as one bigger bar where you can sit and relax for a few hours.
