KOH SAK

This small horseshoe-shaped island has a well-sheltered bay in the southerly season. Anchor in about 4-6 metres on a sandy bottom in clear water off the fringing coral reef.

Swim ashore on Koh Sak to a basic seafood restaurant. The island used to be an exclusive resort for Thailand’s rich and famous, though it is now rather rundown. On the footpath leading south from the beach you’ll see the foot and hand prints of many famous visitors, including some old Hollywood legends.

NOTE: On the passage from this group of islands to Pattaya, avoid the area around Hin Koh Larn, about 1.5 miles east of Koh Krok. Do not rely on the marker buoy, which is frequently washed away or which drags during rough weather. Anchoring at Koh Krok, a private island, is not permitted.
