Koh Ma is a tiny island northwest of Koh Phangan which connected to Phangan island by a sand bank at low tide. The island and this sandy path are emblematic images of Koh Phangan. On one side you have Mae Haad beach and on the right, Koh Ma, more wild, more preserved. Surrounded by reefs, Koh Ma is also a good site for snorkeling.
Koh Ma itself is a small island with a very small beach on the southern side of the island which is connected by a sand beach to the larger adjacent Mae Haad beach. Other than some small structures on the tiny beach the island is uninhabited. This is small sided island with no proper paths and we do not recommend trying to climb up it or around it as you are likely to have an accident.
What is special about Koh Ma is that the waters around it are protected; fishing is not permitted in the waters around Koh Ma and this means that there are lots of fish around the rocks and corals.
