CHUMPORN PAK NAM
The best approach is from the southeast, inshore of Koh Samet. Anchor in 4-5 metres on a muddy bottom, clear of the traffic at the harbour entrance.
Unless you are going to the yard, mooring inside this busy port is inadvisable.
The lighthouse on Koh Mattaphon has several red sectors marking the entrance, but it is always advisable to follow a local boat in the channel in daylight.
The harbour has all the amenities you would expect of a local fishing port, but better provisioning is found at the main town, which is 20 km from the harbour.
