Pang Ka is geographically as far from the frenetic hustle and bustle of Samui's main tourist beaches as one can get. This is a deep bay and beach in the island's far southwest corner. This corner of Samui is one vast coconut plantation, with small villages scattered here and there. There are no shops or facilities what-so-ever on the peninsula and beaches of Phang Ka, and very little local community in this area. It only takes a short drive, however, to bring one to small villages along both south and west coasts, and a scattering of local restaurants. Visitors staying in this part of Samui are certainly going to find tranquility - so much of it that anyone contemplating this corner of the island should be sure that a total cut-off from entertainment, shopping and outside dining experiences.
