6 miles from Koh Maisi Lek

AO KHLONG CHAO. 11°37.727N, 102°32.492E

Sufficient protection here during the northeast season. The best spot is in 5 metres on sand off the mouth of the khlong in the centre of the bay. One of Koh Kut’s larger rivers enters the ocean here.

Up river beyond the bridge is a small wooden jetty with a 20-minute walking track to a jungle waterfall and plunge pool. The falls run best from November to March and comes with toe-nibbling-fish and a rope swing.

Both banks of the khlong have small resorts. The Peter Pan Resort on the southern bank is interesting in that it’s entirely built on a sand spit no more than 30 metres wide.

There’s a supermarket at the top of the steep hill behind the Away Resort. If the Peter Pan looks to be hosting one of its frequent weekend parties, it’s best to move down to the southern end of the bay near to the Na Talay resort for a quiet night.
