Koh Mak FAQs – Hospitals, Police, Money, Internet, Shops, Sandflies

To help you with those practical requirements of your holiday, we have put together so common Koh Mak FAQs – information on hospitals, police, post, phones, money, internet and shopping.

Is there a hospital on Koh Mak?

Koh Mak has one public clinic, which is on the road leading down to Ao Nid Pier. It can deal adequately with the usual day to day problems.

More serious cases will involve transfer to Trat on the mainland, where there are two options, the public hospital or the private one run by the Bangkok Trat Group. For the transfer, there are (paid) speedboats if needed which can go out of normal hours.

Operated by the Bangkok Hospital Group, there was a private clinic on the strip behind Ao Kao Beach opposite By The Sea. It closed at the start of Covid in 2020 and has not re-opened since.

You are strongly advised to take out health insurance before travelling. Although the area has not 100% eradicated malaria, cases are extremely rare and anti-malarials should not be required.
