The quiet island of Ko Kood is situated to the southeast of Ko Chang, and boasts an incredibly appealing atmosphere for holidaying. The sparkling clear waters of the Thai gulf gently lap against gorgeous white sands, making this island a renowned site for couples and honeymooners. Families too will also find the island to be satisfying beyond their expectations.Don’t Miss
Despite its small size, Ko Kood has quite a large number of landmarks and attractions that will entertain the entire family.
The beaches are the island’s most important tourism treasures. The prettiest beaches in Ko Kood are along its western edge, including the lake-like waters of Bang Bao Bay. Most beaches are almost empty, so visitors can really get a sense of rejuvenation when holidaying here.
Swimming doesn’t have to always be at the beach. Klong Chao is the largest waterfall on the island. It contains the biggest swim pool too, which gets relatively busy in the afternoons, especially in the high season. Another quieter option when it comes to waterfalls is Klong Yai Ki Falls. Not far from Bann Makok, this waterfall remains peaceful year round, and is naturally breath-taking.
Ko Kood’s underwater treasures cannot be overlooked either. Diving off the island’s coastline will take tourists into turtle, sting ray and even barracuda habitats, not to mention schools of brilliant reef fish. Most months of the year provide clear diving conditions on the island.Restaurants and Bars
There are not many bars on the island, and the night life is pretty laid-back. Ko Kood is not a party island, although many restaurants and bars do provide visitors with a very friendly and social atmosphere. Many of Ko Kood’s restaurants are operated inside the resorts. Some of these options are well worth sampling. Western food has also become more popular in recent years. The most renowned dining spot on the island is the View Point Café, which operates above Klong Chao.Shopping
Modern development, aside from resorts, is largely absent at Ko Kood, so there are not many options when it comes to shopping. The village of Ao Salat contains a souvenir shop. Many of the resorts also feature a store where guests can purchase souvenir-style items.
