KOH SAM. 8° 02.308N, 98° 47.797E

Anchor in sand just south of the four islets in around 4-5 metres. The water is very clear, and the shallows are easy to spot. This is an excellent overnight stop in the northeast monsoon.

Dinghy excursions up the river are possible keeping close to the western shore at the entrance. Once over the bar, the water is deeper and the inlet is bounded by sandy beaches. The entrance is also suitable for speedboats and shallow draft vessels.

Inside the river are two jetties used by small local boats. On the west bank is a bungalow resort development and on the east bank, a road with many local food stalls alongside provides access to the main road to Krabi and Ao Nang. The east side jetty is the transit point for all guest and staff vessels to Centara Grand Beach Resort on the east side of the Ao Nang headland.
