Haad Yao in Thai is called long beach - it is nearly one kilometre in length making it one of the largest beaches and bays on the island - and one of the most beautiful and popular. There is plenty to do here from beach activities through to bars and restaurants that pop up across the bay and on the road into Haad Yao.
Haad Yao is also a magnet for divers and the diving schools teach courses and offer PADI qualifications. There are other places on Koh Phangan such as Chalok Lam that also offer diving training.
