Koh Chang Beaches

Everything you Need to Know about Koh Chang

Located in the Gulf of Thailand off Trat, the southernmost province on the Thai east coast bordering Cambodia, Koh Chang (Elephant Island) is part of Koh Chang Marine National Park, an archipelago consisting of two other major islands (Koh Kood and Koh Mak) and 50 smaller islands. Koh Chang is a mountainous island which covers a total area of 429 square kilometers, making it Thailand’s second largest island after Phuket. Abundant in natural resources and home to beautiful beaches, bays and waterfalls, the island’s attractions are distinctively divided into two large groups, the western and the eastern side.

Most of the popular attractions are located on the western side, stretching from the north to the south. These include White Sand Beach, Klong Prao Beach, Klong Plu Waterfall, Kai Bae Beach, Klong Son Bay (Chang Noi Beach), Lonely Beach (Hat Tha Nam) and a fishing community of Bangbao Beach. This is because the beaches on this side are wide and less stony, making them more appealing to the beachgoers. Each beach offers different feel and vibe, depending on your preference. While the well-developed beach like White Sand Beach is ideal for visitors who can’t live without all the life’s comforts, further off areas like Kai Bae and Lonely beaches are excellent for those who seek peace and privacy. The eastern side, on the other hand, is still largely unexplored, and contains less popular places like Than Mayom Waterfall, Klong Nonsi Waterfall, Wai Chek Beach, Salakphet Bay, Long Beach, Salakkok Bay, fruit and rubber plantations as well as a few fishing villages.
