Ko Kut is a peaceful island of tranquil beaches, crystal waters and friendly villagers. With more palm trees than buildings, and resorts named Peter Pan and Neverland, it will make you feel like you’ve stepped into a fairy tale.
Unlike its party-town neighbour Ko Chang, this is where you come to do nothing but relax. The perfect place to spend sunny afternoons dozing in a hammock and listening to the gentle waves, Ko Kut lets you press pause and forget your cares completely.CHECK AVAILABILITY
The fourth-largest island in Thailand, Ko Kut (also known as Koh Kood) receives surprisingly few visitors. It’s still underdeveloped and there are only around 20 small resorts, each featuring a private beach. While ideal for simply kicking back and watching the sun go down, the island also offers plenty of opportunities for hiking, diving, snorkelling and exploring the beauty of nature.
In Ko Kut, the ocean is your playground. While away the hours riding the waves on a surfboard or navigating the scenic coastline of caves and cliffs in a kayak. The local fishermen will be happy to show you the best fishing spots. Below the surface, you can immerse yourself in the underwater world of colourful coral and curious sea creatures. Koh Rang’s marine park, located on the west of the island, has some of the best coral in the area. If you are feeling extra adventurous, dive to the depths and explore the wreck of the HTMS Chang.
The island is covered by ancient tropical rainforest and some trees are more than 200 years old. After a long hike, Klong Chao waterfall is perfect for a refreshing swim. The waterfall was originally named Nam Tok Anam Kok by King Rama VI in 1911 to commemorate Ong Chiang Su, a Vietnamese king who sought refuge in Thailand in the late 18th century.
Ko Kut is not your typical Thai island crammed with tourist services. On the contrary, it is an escape from the traffic and the noise. That means, however, that you may not always have a convenience store nearby. Remember to bring plenty of drinking water when you go off for an adventure, whether it is in the forest or the ocean.
