8 miles from Ao Chalong
During the northeast monsoon season, a very small bay in the middle of the west coast offers good overnight holding, for one or two boats, in 10-12 metres on a sand and rock bottom. Schooling bottlenose dolphins are often found off this bay. Day trip catamarans often raft up during the day in this anchorage.
There’s a 15-minute walk across the island on a carved track to its east coast. This anchorage is rumoured to be a great spot for catching red snapper at night. Try hand lines with fresh bait.
