Koh Mak island

      

Koh Mak Island (watch the film) is located on the East side of Taj Bay between two islands: Koh Chang and Koh Kood, approximately 350 km away from the capital city – Bangkok. It is a small, tropical island with the area of 16 km2. The island is dominated by coconut and para rubber trees plantations. Islanders mostly work in agriculture and tourism business which still is not as commercialized as in other popular resorts in Thailand. Nowadays Koh Mak has something for everyone, from cheap bamboo backpacker huts to a variety of mid range bungalow resorts and upmarket boutique establishments. No wonder that because of beautiful beaches and crystal clear water in October 2006 the Sunday Times newspaper included Koh Mak in its list of the world’s ‘Top 10 Secret Beaches’. For people who want to relax in tranquil environment unspoiled by mass tourism and really get away from it all Koh Mak is a perfect place.

 

 

 

Attractions on the island mostly includes relax on the beach, swimming, snorkeling, diving on the nearby located coral reef and National Park, fishing, trekking, bike cycling, kayaking and boat excursions to other islands around (Koh Wai - watch the film, Koh Kood, Koh Kam, Koh Rayang and many others). Scuba diving trips can be arranged by three Diving Centers located on the Island.
