Koh Phangan Gay Guide

A guide to help you find the best hotels & places in Koh Phangan for Gay travellers


Gay Holidays in Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan is a beautiful island located in the southeastern part of Thailand. It is particularly popular for its Full Moon Parties that take place every month at the Haad Rin Beach attracting among others many gay travellers from all over the world.

During the time of the Full Moon Parties the gay scene gets busier as the Bansabai district, which is a 3km long area packed with clubs and pubs, provides the best entertainment when it comes to ladyboys. Beyond the largest beach party event, Koh Phangan does not have a big and organised scene like Koh Samui. 

There are only 2 exclusively gay venues on the island, the L'Alcove winery and the 4You bar. The L'Alcove is famous for organising live music events and having the best wine, while 4You bar is known for being the only gay cocktail bar in the area. 

Another gay scene worth mentioning is the gay secluded beach located South of the Secret Beach on the west coast of Koh Phangan. The only exclusively gay shore, popular for its nudist character and its beach Bar attracting young gay crowds. 

In Koh Phangan you will find friendly people to meet, picturesque beaches and stunning views to relish. The destination has a fast growing gay scene and many available gay-friendly bars at the moment to explore. It's a great haven for island hopping between the Koh Samui Island for the weekend.
