KOH ADANG WEST. 6°32.600N, 99°16.550E

There are now upwards of 15 national park moorings all along the west coast of Koh Adang. All are laid in outside the reefs in deeper than 12 metres areas. Anchoring is also allowable in 10 metres on the sandy shelf off the small village toward the southern end of the island.

In strong northeast winds this coast is the best anchorage in the entire Butang Group. The numerous beaches and reefs here mean it’s still possible to find a quiet spot away from the many longtails and speedboats. A warning for social media addicts; no cell coverage on this coast.
