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
Paradise Waterfall Koh Phangan is an awesome spot to hang out with locals and spend a day chilling in the cold water. There isn’t really a beautiful waterfall but there are a few streams of water trickling down the side of a rock and into the small pool below. The water doesn’t appear to be very enticing as it is slightly brown, however if it’s a hot day then it’s a nice spot to relax in the shallow pool. The waterfall is also less than a 1 minute walk from the carpark.
You’ll also notice many tourists and locals of all ages having a go on the rope swing. We saw lots of locals doing backflips and even climbing up the tree and jumping into the water below. The vibes of this spot are very fun while being laid back. Everyone is there to have a good time and enjoy the water.
This waterfall might not be the most beautiful or best spot for photos. However, it’s still an awesome place if you want to hang out for the day amongst the bunch of locals having fun!
