Pasai Beach - Koh Yao Noi
Koh Yao Noi’s main beach runs 2 kilometers along the east coast. Take a swim, grab a beach side massage, or enjoy the views over Phang Nga bay from a restaurant or bar.
Fringed by palm trees and jungle covered mountains, Pasai Beach is long, narrow and has the largest number of hotels and restaurants on the island. Swimming is good here at high tide. You can also rent a Kayak or take a boat/snorkelling tour to neighbouring islands.
There is a good range of restaurants and bars to suit all budgets. Try simple local dishes from the Thai restaurants and street food carts gathered at the southern end of the beach, or dine at one of the upmarket resorts.
Pasai Beach is quiet at night, though there is a small wooden hut at the northern end of the beach serving cold beer and good food.
Massage centres are located in most hotels, with independent (and often cheaper) places near the restaurants at the southern end of the beach.
Resorts dot the beach and the surrounding jungle, varying from mid range to five star luxury. The road running parallel to the beach has a small collection of shops and cheaper resorts.
