31 miles from Ao Khlong Son
This island protects the bay on the NW end of Koh Kut. Beware the rock in the northern channel between Koh Maisi Lek and Koh Kut and anchor in 10-13 metres in the centre of the bay.
This makes for excellent year-round holding with spectacular views and beaches. There is a small bungalow resort and minimart ashore.
The top of the hill that forms the island of Koh Maisi Lek has been levelled to provide a private airstrip servicing the luxury Soneva resort to the south on Koh Kut. This is unlikely to increase inbound traffic as it is only suitable for light aircraft. The Soneva resort is now open but does not welcome visiting yachtsmen.
