This bay has an artificial reef; please pick up a mooring. Ao Hin Wong offers the best protection in the southwest season and given the relatively short distances to other parts of the island, it’s a good spot to make your base.

The walk over the hill to town takes around half an hour and is enjoyable exercise with great views. It’s easy to grab a taxi back if you’re provisioning at the well-stocked markets in Saree Village.

There’s a floating pontoon for dinghies in the northwest corner of the bay, close to the small resort and restaurant. This is a deep anchorage where long term yachts prefer to stay; the diving and snorkelling is excellent.
