Accessed by two separate tracks leading off the main road, Klong Hin Beach is the second of the beaches which line Koh Kood’s south west coast.
It’s a charming horseshoe bay, with clear blue waters and a nice sweep of sand, though the sea does retreat a long way into the distance at low tide.
There are just three places to stay, Klong Hin Beach Resort, Montana and A La Kood. Beyond them, there’s very little else happening, with no other shops or restaurants.
At the northern end, on the adjoining cove, the boutique resort Hideout Resort Koh Kood sits on its own private beach.
On the Beach
Turning in off the main road at the turning signed for Klong Hin Beach Resort and Cham’s House, you take the left fork, This takes you past the track down to Hideout and eventually brings you out at the northern end of the beach.
Used almost exclusively by Thai tour groups, Klong Hin Beach Resort’s bungalows are laid out in rows just back from sand.
If you walk down to the southern end, you can cross the inlet to the southern headland, where Montana has its restaurant. Their cottages are behind along one side of the lagoon.
Opposite, on the same lagoon, A La Kood, offers up ten rooms in two converted wooden fisherman houses, which perch on stilts over the water, joined by walkways.
Getting to the Southern End by Vehicle
To reach these two resorts by vehicle, you need to ignore the initial turning as described above and instead continue on down the main road for another couple of kilometres, passing restaurants Koh Kood Bistro and Kuba Lounge along the way.
Shortly afterwards, you will spot a signed separate turning by Happy Time (now closed), which takes you on a tortously bumpy track for two to three kilomtres through the forest until you emerge out at the back of turn in A La Kood.
