The Island Less Traveled – Koh Nang Yuan

Compare hotel prices and find the best deal - www.hotelscombined.com
Koh Nang Yuan

Some places on Earth seem just too beautiful to be real. Koh Nang Yuan is one of those places.

The small island (actually three petite islands connected by a beach) often gets overshadowed by nearby Koh Tao, but those interested in taking a road less traveled are advised to listen up. If you’re looking for an escape to one of Thailand’s most pristine destinations, put Koh Nang Yuan on your to-do list immediately.

To reach the paradise that is Koh Nang Yuan, first you have to make your way to Koh Tao which is, fortunately, very easy. Ferries will take you to Koh Tao from a number of different places like Chumphon, Surat Thani, Koh Samui, and more. From Koh Tao, you have a simple 15 minute long tail boat ride to Koh Nang Yuan.

Let’s be honest, no matter how many times you ride a longtail boat, it never gets old. The humming of the motor, the sea breeze in your hair — it’s a classic Thai experience. Another option is to take the Lomphraya high speed ferry. Choose from high speed catamarans and speed boats, as well as snorkeling trips complete with buffet lunch on the island and a climb to a scenic viewpoint.

Koh Nang Yuan 1

Once you reach Koh Nang Yuan, it can be hard to find words to describe its splendor, so here are a few to get you started: breathtaking, magical, unreal. The glassy clear water shines radiantly alongside white sand beaches and grey stone boulders. It’s no secret how Koh Nang Yuan has been able to stay so stunning over the years.

The island’s dedication to environmental conservation has protected its natural beauty from the usual drawbacks of tourism. Plastic isn’t allowed on the island, and visitors are fined for bringing any. The result of this strict policy is a beautiful thing: the island has remained one of the cleanest in the country for generations.

Koh Samet: Thailand’s most underrated island

Samet
Koh Samet is a popular weekend destination for many people of Bangkok.

JUST 200 kilometres southeast of Bangkok in the Gulf of Thailand, the small island of Koh Samet is fast becoming famous for its quaint, white sandy beaches bathed in crystal-clear waters and exotic corals.

Ko Samet

Most of the island is a national park, a thick jungle interior crouching beside the low-rise hotels. Unlike other popular Thai islands such as Koh Samui or Koh Phangan, Koh Samet has not yet been the victim of major development and construction, and its tourism industry is only beginning to emerge.

Ko samet 2

The interior road around the island remains rutted and largely unpaved, and checking out the island’s gorgeous beaches — most of which hide in small bays and stretch some 200m — is done by foot, by using the wooded trails skirting the coastline.

Ko samet 3

According to Philip Cornwel-Smith, a British expatriate expert on Thailand and author of Very Thai: Everyday Popular Culture, Koh Samet is a popular weekend escape from Bangkok — it only takes three hours by land to get there, without any need of flying.

Samet 2

“Samet is the closest truly gorgeous tropical island to Bangkok, so it’s a favourite weekend break for urbanites, especially gays, many on return visits.”

Ko samet beach 1

Ao Phrao is also one of the quietest beaches of Koh Samet, and an upmarket beach with no budget options and incredible sunsets.

“[They have] lots of couples and groups promenading on the fine white beach and swimming to the pontoon.”

“The beachside Silver Sands disco in Ao Phai is heaving on weekends, when you can spot so many gays from the Bangkok scene.”

Ko samet beach 2


There are various other things to do on the island apart from lazing on the beach or beach-hopping by foot. Scuba diving is fast becoming a popular activity, as well as boat trips around the island.

The small size of Koh Samet means it’s also easy to explore by bike riding or by hiring a motorbike/ATV, and it’s a great option to take advantage of in order to visit a few of the smaller more secluded beaches or the more naturally-forested areas further south of the island.

There are also several dining options, as well as a lots of bars and clubs to keep tourists occupied when the sun goes down.

Cambodia, Sihanoukville Beaches

Cambodia, Sihanoukville Beaches

Sihanoukville town sits in the center of a small peninsula that juts into the warm waters of the Gulf of Thailand. Several beaches of fine pearl-white sand line the shore around the peninsula, most easily accessible from town, each separated as much by character as the rocky headlands between. The main beaches are lined with thatch roofed seafood shacks and bars offering cold drinks, umbrellas and chairs, BBQ and more. Ochheuteal and Serendipity Beaches are the most popular and the busiest with plenty of nearby hotels, guesthouses, bars and restaurants.
A bit farther from town, Sihanoukville’s out-of-the-way beach Otres continues to grow in popularity, but is still maintaining its relaxed, laid-back vibe.
On the other side of town, Independence Beach, though small, offers a pleasantly tranquil atmosphere and beachside bbq shacks.

Cambodia - Ochheuteal beach
Ochheuteal and Serendipity Beach
Ochheuteal Beach is by far the most popular and touristed beach in town. Ochheuteal is long, sandy and comparatively narrow, with ‘Serendipity Beach’ at the arcing northern end, most of the southern half closed to the public, and a small cluster of beach restaurants at the pleasantly quiet far end. Most of the hotels, guesthouses and restaurants are on and around the northern half of the beach.

Sihanoukville,_Otres_Beach
Otres Beach
Otres Beach is the next beach south of Ochheuteal and is similar in many ways. Like Ochh-euteal, Otres is a three kilometer cre-scent of white sand facing southwest. But Otres is somewhat more thinly touristed, offering a more relaxed, chill-out atmosphere. Beach shacks and guesthouses/bungalows line the near and far ends of Otres with the central section now public pack and open beach without any businesses.

Cambodia - Independence Beach
Independence Beach

Independence is the quieter, more relaxed near-town beach.
The beach is better than a kilometer long, but more than half is closed for a development project. A long slice at the north end remains open to the public – a lightly touristed 500 meter strip of sandy beach, sporting a dozen beach front BBQ huts, restaurants and bars including one of my favorites, The Small Beach Bar, from the same people as The Small Hotel in town, serving very good western food and Swedish specialties in addition to the usual seafood BBQ and such. A good place to escape the crowds of Ochheuteal Beach.

Cambodia - Victoria Beach
Victoria Beach
Victory Beach sits at the base of the popular Victory Hill. Victory Beach offers one of the best sunset views in town but unfortunately the beach is partially closed and there are no longer any bbq shacks or other vendors. Farther north along Victory the beach narrows and a few upscale seafood restaurants hug the water’s edge and a couple of casinos can be found on the beach road.
Above Victory Beach, Victory Hill offers a variety of guesthouses, restaurants and bars. Several places, both budget and mid-range dot the side of the Hill overlooking the ocean, some offering excellent sunset views.

Cambodia - Sokha Beach
Sokha Beach
Occupying all of Sokha Beach, the Sokha Beach Resort offers luxury accommodation and fine dining. Sokha Beach is a beautiful beach, a crescent of sand about one kilometer long and comparatively wide. The fine pearl white sand is perfectly groomed these days but the beach is fairly quiet, frequented primarily by resort guests. There aren’t any little seafood shacks, but dining gazebos and an up-market beach bar / restaurant run by the Sokha Beach Resort.

Cambodia - Ream Beach
Ream Beach
A distant beach, 27 kilometers north of town, Ream Beach is long and narrow, sitting at the edge of Preah Sihanouk (‘Ream’) National Park. The beach is largely untouristed and of very average quality. Long but very narrow with a mix of fine and coarse light tan sand.

Cambodia - Prek treng Beach
Preng treng Beach
Another distant beach, Prek Treng is a long, wide crescent of brilliant white sand a few kilometers north of town, offering comparatively warm shallow waters. The beach is in good shape, groomed and landscaped, but is usually all but deserted. Picnickers do show up on the weekends and sometimes during the week, but there are rarely more than a few groups there. Sometimes a couple of food shacks stand open at the near end. To get there follow Hun Sen Beach Drive north a few kilometers past the port area.Best to bring along some of your own drinks and snacks.
