Home » Koh Mak » Islands off Koh Mak

5 islands lie offshore from Koh Mak – Koh Kham, Koh Kradat, Koh Rayang Nok, its adjoining sister Koh Rayang Nai and the tiny Koh Pii.

Koh Rayang Nok is home to a small resort, while Koh Kradat’s basic accommodation is used by Thai weekenders. Koh Kham has an unfinished luxury resort. The final two, Koh Rayang Nai and Koh Pii are uninhabited.

There are entrance fees at Koh Kham (200bt), Koh Rayang Nok (150bt) and Koh Kradat (150bt) and they can be visited on boat trips scheduled through your resort. The energetic can also kayak across to these islands without too much bother.

We can organise a terrific speedboat day tour (minimum 5 persons) around the islands, with all park fees, lunch and transfers to and from your resort included. Please Contact Us and we will come back to you with prices and more details.

Koh Rayang Nok – Koh Mak Islands

Koh Rayang Nok is a gem of a little island, with a single resort and a beautiful white sandy beach. A small wooden bridge connects it to a rocky outcrop at its northern end and from the island’s western shore, Koh Rang dominates the far horizon.

You can kayak across in about 45 minutes from Ao Kao with a half day hire from one of the resorts opposite at 300bt.

The island charges a 150bt entrance fee, payable on arrival, with a cold drink as one of its perks. Small boats ply back and forth from the resorts on Ao Kao, with the sister resort, Rayang Nature, the best place to ask. They also do a day trip at 350bt including the fee.

Koh Kham

Situated off Ao Suan Yai on the the north west coast of Koh Mak, this is a very pretty private island with entry of fee of 200bt. Boats leave every 2 hours from the pier at Koh Mak Resort for 350bt with the fee included, returning 3 hours later. You can book this at Koh Mak Information Point behind the pier or Prompakdee, just down the beach, also has a boat for charter and kayaks at 150bt an hour, 500bt a day – it’s a very gentle paddle.

On the island, a shack serves drinks and snacks, the 1st drink free with the entrance fee. Boat trips from Koh Chang tend to arrive mid morning.

Koh Kham Resort (Ananta Hideaway)

Koh Kham’s solitary resort, Ananya Hideaway, is around 70% complete. Construction ceased a few years back due to a dispute between owner and architect and depending on who you listen to, there are also legal disputes with the government. There’s no question it could be one of the Koh Chang Islands’ most exclusive resorts but for now Mother Nature is working her way slowly but surely through what’s standing.

Once you’ve paid the entrance fee, you can wander around the semi-ruins as you please. The beach is stunning by the way and the whole island is up for sale at 1.5 billion baht.

Koh Kradat – Koh Mak Islands

Off the north east tip of Koh Mak, Koh Kradat is a very flat low lying island, thought to resemble a sheet of paper floating on the waves, hence the name, Koh meaning island and Kradat = paper. It is very much a working environment with a population of about 20, who farm the coconuts and go out fishing. There is a Thai style package resort, a restaurant, small inlet for the boats and most curiously, a thriving herd of deer.

The entrance fee is 150bt which is payable as part of the boat fee, itself normally around 350bt per person return and bookable at the usual spots on Ao Suan Yai and Ao Kao or at Villa Allure at Ao Pai. You can also just turn up at Laem Son in the very north east of the island and negotiate with one of the locals.

Once on the island, there is a tractor which will take you round in a loop to see both the deer and the general topography. If the tide is low (May to June), you can also walk across to the two tiny islands at its northern tip – Koh Nok Nok and Koh Nok Nai.

koh pii

Koh Pii

Koh Pii is a tiny uninhabited island, (rock in truth), off Ao Lom bay at the north western end of the island.

Its claim to fame is the reef which encirles it, ideal for snorkeling. Half day boat trips will take you out there and the surrounding area at around 1,000bt for a few hours.

Mira Montra Resort and Cococape Resort are the nearest resorts, with kayaks also available at the usual day rates of 500bt.

For details on how to get to Ao Lom by feet or wheels, check out our trails page here.

koh rayang nai

Koh Rayang Nai – Koh Mak Islands

Off Ao Kao or Ao Kra Tueng beach on the south west side of the island, this is an uninhabited island with just a small shrine at its northern end.

You can kayak across in no time and even walk over on the sand ridge at low tide. Art of Ocean, an abandoned project of underwater elephant sculptures, lies submerged at 7 metres down just nearby.

For kayaks, try any of the resorts at that end of the beach or have a day down at Laem Tookata in the far south west and go across from there.
