Located in Trat Province, Koh Kood is the easternmost island on the Gulf of Thailand, near Cambodia.
The best way to get into Koh Kood is via a ferry to Nam Luek Pier
. Since this island is popular among vacation package deals, it sees a large number of visitors throughout the year and is therefore fairly easy to access.
The main attraction in Koh Kood are the beaches. People come to this island with the main goal of relaxing at the beach, and perhaps going out to the waterfalls to do more swimming or relaxing. It’s an ideal destination for honeymooners and easy vacation-goers who are not looking for the excitement of nightlife, but rather quiet days and evenings spent watching the waves or the sunset over the sea. Neverland Beach
is one of the popular beaches on this island, attracting a large number of visitors to its shores. There are also a large concentration of hotels and resorts near this beach, which makes it even more convenient for those visiting on a short weekend trip.
Besides beaches and a couple of waterfalls, there isn’t much else to this town so there’s really nothing by way of sightseeing. However, those who get antsy for something slightly more cultural do make their way to the nearby fishing villages like Ao Yai, which is home to a large number of Cambodian and Vietnamese fishermen who will be happy to show tourists around their village.
Koh Kood is the perfect destination not for a busy vacation filled with activities and sightseeing, but the exact opposite of that. Find out where the rest of the hotels and beaches of Koh Kood are located by exploring the interactive map on this page.
