Just South of the Tong Nai Pan Bays, the much more isolated, small double bays of Had Sadet and Had Thong Reng are intersected by a river flowing from the island's most famous waterfall, Than Sadet. The sand is white, the sea is deep and crystal clear, while the dense surrounding jungle combines to create a picture perfect setting. There's little to do but kick back and unwind. The beach is accessible by dirt-road, or boat.
The amazing landscape surrounding the river and waterfall, and the fact that it has been a favorite visiting place of Thai Kings, mean this stretch of coast has protected status.
