The best way to travel to get to Koh Phangan is by ferry although many private speed boats also can be hired to make the journey. This can be an expensive option, and does not really save enough time to justify the expense.
Ferry services to Koh Phangan depart from the mainland at Surat Thani and the nearby islands of Koh Samui and Kao Tao. Thousands of party goers make this trip every month for the world-famous Full Moon parties that have made the island so famous.
During these times the ferries tend to be full to capacity and therefore it is wise to pre-book your ticket in advance. The pier at Koh Phangan is a short trip to the main beach Ban Had Rin which makes it easy for visitors to get there.
The boats that the ferry companies use are well maintained and have capacity around 200-300 hundred depending on the vessel.
We advise passengers that have a ticket to arrive about 30 minutes before sailing and KohLife wish you a pleasant and happy trip.
So don’t delay book your ticket today, simply use our booking platfrom.
