Hotels in Koh Mak are dotted all over the third largest island in the Koh Chang archipelago after Koh Chang and Koh Kood. Koh Mak is located 35 kilometers from the mainland. The island boasts 27 kilometres of flat terrain and a long stretch of pristine beaches. The island is home to two major villages, Ban Aow Nid and Ban Laem Son. Koh Mak has a ‘tambon’ (sub-district) status, and is dependent on Koh Kood district.
Shaped like a cross, Koh Mak’s best beaches are at Khao Bay (on the southwest coast), and the Suan Yai Bay (northwest coast). Attractions on the island include a variety of plantations like coconut and rubber trees. Infrastructure here is still somewhat limited. Although Ko Mak is not connected to the power supply at the mainland, there is a big generator that supplies 24-hour electricity to the whole island and Koh Mak hotels.
