Tonsai West

Everything you need to know about Tonsai West

Tonsai West is the quieter, more contemplative sister of brash and bold Tonsai East and the village itself.

If you pass the pier and keep walking past the hospital and towards the limestone hills you’ll notice that things get a lot quieter and peaceful in this section of the island.

Several large resorts line the path, serving late afternoon cocktails, some feeding the many day tours that arrive en masse late morning but you won’t find original stand-alone restaurants here – only a few sandwich vendors and snack peddlers where you can buy fruit shakes and pancakes.  However towards the end of the beachside path you'll come across a small bar called the Deaf Gecko - this is a friendly place to stop off for a beer. Right at the end of the path is Mama Beach Residence - a resort with a classy restaurant and bar, named Mama Resto, that is worth the walk.

However, you can rent kayaks to explore along the island’s sensational western promontory and several intrepid visitors have even paddled out to Phi Phi Leh! The area is great for snorkeling too and a lot less busy than Loh Dalum.

As for nightlife, Tonsai West hasn’t much, unless you count sitting on the beach counting the stars and listening to the distant boom-boom-boom bass lines coming across the bay from Tonsai East. There are just the Deaf Gecko and The Cliff bar at Mama's Beach Residence.

As for shopping, halfway along the path, just past the hospital there is a convenience store with pretty inconvenient, that’s to say, elevated prices.
