Middle of nowhere...

Koh Phangan, the place for full/half moon partying, sex, drugs and drink. Well Hat Rin is anyway. So as soon as I got of the speedboat after 4 hours lounging in the sun on the deck I found the first taxi I could to take me as far away as possible to Hat Thong Pan Yai. Don't get me wrong I like to drink and have fun, but I can do that at home with all my friends. Whereas I'm on the other side of the world, where I don't know if I'll ever be here again and want to make the most of my 3 days here.
Hat Thong Pan Yai, is lovely, picture perfect with sandy beaches enclosed in hills and rocky shores on the corners, quiet, with crystal clear water and tiny beach huts alongside! Perfect for a quiet nights rest in the middle of nowhere. So much so that internet access is really expensive and when the hotel rings a tour company on the other side of the island they refuse to come get me because it's so far away! Only half an hour by truck! Thats far away! The middle of nowhere!
I stayed in one of the beach huts owned by Cosy Cottages, which also have available to guests it's own restaurant, swimming pool, kayaks and bar.
