Tawan Bar & Bungalows

Tawan Bar and Bungalows sits directly on the sand facing the Andaman Sea and surrounding islands. Consisting of 3 tents, 2 wooden bungalows professionally built by Pi Sak himself and a full service restuarant/bar, it is ideal for both budget backpackers looking for paradise and couples seeking a relaxing get-away.

The tents are the cheapest option on the island for accommodation and are simply tents (2.5m x 2.5m) with a futon sitting on a pagoda which provides a porch like area and protection from the sun. It is a true beach camping experience.

The resort is run by Pi Sak who speaks decent English and is consistently a fantastic host. With his extensive knowledge of the island and local areas he can also provided trekking, fishing, kayaking, snorkeling and savannah tours that are a great way to exploring this little gem of an island.
