18 miles from Ao Khlong Son
This is a beautiful island, one favoured by local sailors and fishermen seeking shelter. The bay on the northeast side offers good protection in the southwest season and makes for a great overnight anchorage. Anchor in 8-10 metres off the Paradise Resort. Good for a lunchtime stop in northeast season, but does get busy with day trippers at peak times – but they leave late afternoon.
During the northeast season the bay on the south side of the island (F) offers good protection for overnight mooring and there is a pathway through to the northeast coast, which is an easy 20-minute walk through dense jungle − so take a torch.
East of Koh Wai is Koh Bai Dang with a small beach on the southeast. A good day stopover for snorkelling there is an abandoned National Park hut and short easy track over to the west coast cove where the island is narrowest.
