On the north coast of Koh Hae there are two sandy bays, still with live coral fringing the beaches. In the southwest monsoon season, sheltered anchorage is available on a sandy bottom in 8-10 metres.
Beware coral heads on the fringe of the reef rising from depths of up to 6 metres.
Ashore restaurants cater to day visitors, with many tour operators bring their customers for snorkelling. In recent years this anchorage has become a bit of a zoo from 10.00 to 17.00
Both bays are busy with tourist day trippers, but the easternmost (Banana Beach) is usually more frantic with a combination of speed boats and heavily loaded sailing catamarans.
While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this book is accurate, the charts of anchorages are based on personal experience and satellite imagery and are intended as a guide only.
