Bottle Beach (also known as Haad Kruat, Haad Kruad and Haad Khuat)
Bottle Beach was once the most inaccesible beach on Koh Phangan. The only way to Bottle Beach used to be via a boat from either Thong Nai Pan or Chaloklum. Nowadays, Bottle Beach is still hard to get to, but there is a steep road linking Bottle Beach with Thong Nai Pan.
Bottle Beach is famous for its beautiful beach and lush mountain scenery. Swimming is good all year round. There is also an excellent trek from Bottle Beach through the jungle and out onto a big rock that overlooks the entire bay. At one time there was only basic bamboo thatch bungalows with communal showers on Bottle Beach. Now the choice of accommodation is much better.
There are four major accommodation providers on Bottle Beach but only two have joined the r24.org reservation system. Bottle Beach 1 Resort is located beachfront in the center of the beach. It has fan and air-con rooms and also boasts a communal swimming pool. Haad Khuad Resort (formerly known as Bottle Beach III) has both wooden fan bungalows and concrete air-con bungalows on the beach.
