This is the first port of entry on the west coast of Thailand. Vessels wishing to enter the Satun River will find a buoyed channel, which leads all the way to the concrete government jetty.

Here you will find police, customs, harbour department and immigration as well as easy access to supplies, ice, workshops etc. The provincial city of Songkla province, Had Yai, has an airport and is about one hour road journey from Satun.

Most yachts prefer to anchor in the entrance to the channel and go ashore by dinghy. We suggest you leave one crewmember aboard as river traffic is heavy. Ferries regularly ply between Satun and Langkawi.
