One of the reasons for Ao Bang Charu's great popularity is its easy accessibility and proximity the main towns. Ao Bang Charu is located on the south coast of Koh Phangan and is a popular place for folk who want to get away from the hubbub of Haad Rin and Thong Sala, whist still being near everything; whether you fancy a big night out or want to use the services in the islands capital. Its proximity to town and open sandy beach has made it a popular destination in Koh Phangan for over twenty years. It is a peaceful beach with sunset views over Koh Samui; well away from the main road and big enough to really get away from it all.
