Surrounded by the sparkling Gulf of Thailand, Koh Kood is a laid-back island ringed by beautiful beaches and coral reefs. Its interior is home to jungle-draped waterfalls and banyan trees.
Things to do in Ko Kut
Spend a day beach-hopping around Koh Kood, stopping to relax on the picture-perfect white sands of Ao Noi or the coconut palm-lined Ngamkho Beach. If you’re looking for something livelier, head to the main beach hub of Klong Chao, which is clustered with waterfront restaurants and souvenir shops.
Stroll through the jungle to Klong Chao Waterfall, which cascades over three tiers to a plunge pool where you can swim. Those feeling adventurous can tackle the trail leading to stunning Huang Nam Keaw Waterfall or swim at the base of Klong Yai Kee Waterfall.
After visiting Klong Chao, stop by the two “Makka” banyan trees believed to be more than 200 years old. Don’t miss the Khao Ruearab rock formation nestled in the forest behind Ngamkho Beach, named after its resemblance to a battleship.
Want to explore below the water’s surface? Join one of the local scuba diving operators to experience the underwater wonders of Koh Range Marine Park. Beginner divers can enjoy the shallow coral off Bang Bao Beach, while experienced divers can venture to the HTMS Chang wreck.
