The restaurant, hosted by local resident Ben Green, serves an excellent selection of Thai and International cuisine, including steaks, English roast, pizza and steak and kidney pies with mash potato.
Ao Chao Phao is one of Koh Phangan's most celebrated beaches and is part of the sunset chain of beautiful coves that populate the west coast of the island. The broad white sand beach is nearly one kilometre long, flanked by lush forest and smooth boulders presenting the perfect image of paradise. The bay is deep enough to swim in year round, and the rich coral reef is a haven for marine life; where shoals of tropical Queenfish swim between mesmerising fluorescent corals, making it amongst the best dive and snorkeling spots on the island. The pace of development has been slow and tasteful on Ao Chao Phao, and it retains the peaceful beauty and laid back vibe that drew the first island explorers here, then made them return year after year.
