Koh Chang Islands

UPDATED for 2018-19 Season

koh-chang-islands The Koh Chang islands come in all shapes and sizes either just off the coast or further out to sea.

Koh Ngam and Koh Laoya, near to the south east corner of Koh Chang have very pretty beaches and some accommodation, with Koh Laoya featuring on the radar of a few boat trips.

Off Koh Chang’s north west and west coast, as well as in Salak Phet bay in the south, there are clusters of tiny uninhabited islands, great for visiting in a kayak, but perhaps the best known of all is Koh Rang, about an hour out from Bang Bao, with Koh Mak to its west. This is the centre of the Marine Park with three distinct sets of tiny isles off its shores, a snorkeling and diving paradise.

As to how many islands make up the Koh Chang Islands, 52 to 54 is the figure that the various surveys settle on, with other scattered rocks and pinnacles, such as the dive sites at Hin Rap and Hin Luk Bat, not included in that total. 43 of this figure are given Marine Park designation, principally all those around Koh Chang, Koh Wai and Koh Rang, with the islands off Koh Mak and Koh Kood not falling into that classification.
