Koh Mak Thailand is a picture perfect paradisaical island in the Gulf of Thailand. The island is covered with coconut trees, white sands and surrounded by magnificent clear blue water. It’s the ideal location for anyone looking to enjoy a relaxing break away in Southeast Asia. Koh Mak Thailand is located just outside the Mu Ko Chang Marine National Park in Eastern Thailand. It is the biggest privately owned island in the whole of Thailand.
The island spans just 16km² making it possible for anyone to explore every part of Koh Mak, even if you are limited on time. Situated off the beaten track and not frequently by many tourists, Koh Mak Thailand is the perfect holiday destination for those looking to escape and unwind.
The island has not been developed like many other islands in the Gulf, such as Samui and Koh Phangan. There are only a small selection of restaurants and resorts. Most of the bars and places to eat are within the resorts themselves, overlooking one of the beaches.
When it comes to nightlife on Koh Mak… there is none. If you are someone who enjoys a late night drinking the local rum, Sangsom, and dancing until the early hours, then you’ve come to the wrong island. Koh Mak is all about quiet, peaceful evenings chilling in a hammock whilst catching up with friends or reading a book.
Koh Mak Thailand is home to over 10,000 coconut trees, nearly 30 fantastic resorts, a primary school, Buddhist temple, health centre, fishing village, diving centre, a few shops and a handful of restaurants. It’s easy to see why the island occasionally even attracts film crews from around the world, who are in search of a place that is naturally beautiful and unspoiled.
Whether you like to explore the underwater world, or prefer to keep your feet dry, there are various activities and things to do on Koh Mak Thailand. For those who love the sea, you can experience diving on the reefs surrounding Koh Mak or book a snorkelling trip.
The nearby Marine Park has the best selection of marine life Thailand has to offer. Other watersports include windsurfing, Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) or swimming. Back on dry land, you can explore the island on foot or using two wheels.
There are also a number of organised daily tours that will take you to other neighbouring islands. You can of course, opt to simple sit back in your hammock for the entire day, moving only to sample a Thai massage on the beach front.
