Koh Phayam

Ranong Province
A Vacation in Koh Phayam

Hello Unregistered,

This gorgeous little island is truly the undiscovered pearl of the Andaman Sea with long white sandy beaches, clear blue sea, coral reefs, itís the perfect place to really get away from it all- from lying in a hammock doing absolutely nothing except watch the amazing sunsets to snorkeling fishing (big of small game) , boat trips around the island to the many neighbouring islands including Koh Surin, swimming in the warm waters or even body-boarding.

The two main bays are Aow Yai Ė the sunset bay, and Aow Khao Kwai. Both bays have long curving white sandy beaches.

If you get bored of the beachlife then thereís always the inland experience. Koh Phayam has lots of good mini hikes into the hills, forests and jungle.There are tidal mangrove forests and lots of wildlife including monkeys, boars, and some beautiful and rare birds.

A small track runs around the island making everything accessible by foot, bike or motor-scooters which are available for hire, there arenít any cars.

There are several resorts offering bungalow accommodation, all of which are exceptionally good, clean and comfortable, including the charming Bamboo Bungalows on Aow Yai beach.

A boat taxi to the island leaves at 2 pm every day from the pier at Sapan Plaa, the trip costs 100 baht per person and takes about an hour and a half. The boat back leaves Koh Phayam at 8 am.
