The southern part of thebeach is separated from the touristic main beach. It is a nice, quiet bay with a stunning view of a small island in the Upper Gulf region. Most people do not make it to this bay because you have to cross a small river or drive around the golf course.
Tourism is just starting in Ko Phra Thong. There are more than 15 km of pleasant beaches and less than 10 places to stay, mostly in the northwest. The bulk of stays are clustered in 2 small bays on the northwest side of the island.
