Chaloklam (sometimes spelt Chaloklum) is an amazing place for people wanting to get back to a more natural environment. The bay is about 3 km in length with sandy stretches and bungalows spread thoughout.

Chaloklam itself is a former fishing village with a very laid back atmosphere. There is a dive center in the village and many small shops and restaurants. There is a temple in the village and a Chinese Temple on the way back to the port of Thongsala.

An elephant training camp on the outskirts of the village is a great attraction - in fact there are two.

In general the bay is filled with trees and meadowland rather than development which lends it a rural feel. The people are very chilled out and accomodating. There are some bars in the village and then most of the bungalows along the beach also offer drinking and dining.

A great place to visit and use as your base to visit the many beaches and bays on the island.

Sri Thanu Bay is on the western coast of Koh Phangan - a sheltered volcanic outcrop that pushes out into the coral reef that runs from Haad Yao into Sri Thanu.

Sri Thanu Bay is a very laid back place that has traditional Thai style bungalows on the shores of the area. The resorts are intergated into the hillsides that rise quickly from the ocean allowing great views from each veranda that overlooks the bay

Swimming is easy and the reef is almost on the shore allowing the more inexperienced to enjoy the marine world. Sri Thanu is just 10 minutes from Thonsala by taxi allowing easy shopping and banking.
