Wang Sai Waterfall Koh Phangan is located in the north of the island and is a great spot consisting of multiple layers and rock pools. If you visit in the right season, you’ll have an amazing time exploring and relaxing by these falls. If you visit in the dry season like we did, then you unfortunately might not get to see much water!

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 Wang Sai Waterfall Koh Phangan
When you first arrive at Wang Sai Waterfall you might be confused as you arrive at a very quiet adventure park. The falls are located to the left of the adventure park through some dirt trails and forest. Once you walk through the adventure park and follow the dirt trail for 5 minutes, you’ll come to the start of the falls. Although, if you visit during dry season like we did then there will be minimal water. The falls were still very cool to explore the different layers but there was no clean spot to swim as the water wasn’t flowing. During wet season this waterfall would be an incredible spot to hang out.
The adventure park also offers a large unique swimming hole which is right in front of the carpark. This spot did have a running stream of water so it might be a better option for swimming. However, it isn’t as natural as the Wang Sai Falls due to the cemented pool below. The adventure park was incredibly quiet with not even a single staff member around.
Be sure to check out Paradise Waterfall for some rope swinging if there’s no water at this one!
