Koh Adang is part of the marine national park Tarutao in the southernmost part of Thailand near the border to Malaysia. The island is the second biggest and reaches a maximum hight of 689m. Adang is surrounded by only few sandy beaches, but a lot of coral reefs and excellent snorkeling and diving sites. The same as the neighbouring islands of Koh Rawi and Koh Butang. Some mountain trails can be used for hiking though the dense jungle. View points offer excellent views over the marine park and the nearby island of Koh Lipe. At the east coast lays a small village of Chaoleh, who are mainly fishermen. No other people live on Adang and no infrastructure is provided. The island is very natural and covered with rainforest. From Koh Lipe one can do daytrips to Adang or the other islands of the Tarutao national park.
How to get there
By boat from Koh Lipe.
