Ports: Koh Kut

Koh kut or Koh kood

Located just to the south of Koh Chang in the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Kut is that laid-back island paradise that dreams are made of. Unlike some of its more popular neighbors, Koh Kut has remained refreshingly undeveloped, retaining its laid-back, island vibe charms.

You can swim or snorkel in its crystal clear waters, with a myriad of fish species to discover on its surrounding coral reefs, or grab a kayak and explore its pristine beaches and coastline. But most visitors to Koh Kut come to sunbathe on its powdery sands, wile away the hours in a hammock, and just soak up the serenity.

If you’re looking for a little more action, its jungle-clad interior offers some fantastic trekking opportunities through towering coconut palms and rubber plantations. There are hidden waterfalls with pools to swim in, as well as the magnificent Klong Jao River where you can slowly paddle along its tranquil waters.

Despite being Thailand’s fourth largest island, there are no ATM’s, 7Elevens, traffic or nightlife on Koh Kut, and the tranquility is absolute bliss! For a more authentic and peaceful glimpse into Thai island living, this unspoiled gem may be just what you are looking for.
