About Koh Wai
Koh Wai is a paradise island with a coral reef and small sandy beaches. It is part of the Koh Chang marine national park. Snorkeling and diving is excellent, as relaxing or swimming in the bay is. It is good for relaxing a few days and as a stopover from Koh Chang to other islands. There is only little space on Koh Wai, just the northern bay has enough space for laying in the sun or in the shadow of the palm trees. The water in the bay is crystal clear with plenty of small fishes to feed. The island is covered by forest and the southern coast is rocky, but if you rent a kayak, a trip around the island or to Koh Khlum is a nice activity. There is a small beach with coconut trees north of the main beach, where you can be Robinson for a day, all alone with yourself (see big photo).
