As far as Thai islands go, most everyone has heard of Phuket, Ko Samui and Ko Tao….but we take the opportunity to get in depth with the lesser known gems…where there are still far more locals than tourists.
Heading ashore to Koh Mak after arriving, we find out we basically are the only tourists there! This super chill island is all set up for the laid back traveler…but we must have come ashore while they were all sleeping off their sun soaked antics of the afternoon. We did get in contact with our new friends Maria and Phillip, who happened to be staying there. The next day we brought them out for a day of fun on Island Breeze where we got in a sail, attempted a little snorkeling, did deck jumps into the water, and then enjoyed a sunset on the trampoline with rum & cokes in hand.
The next morning we haul anchor and set our sights on Koh Kood…much more focused to the resort visitors, but with plenty of pristine beaches. We make our first stop in front of the 6 star resort, Sonevea Kiri, where we’re not allowed to go ashore, but we can take in the beautiful views from our cockpit. And an extra bonus for us, wanting to keep their guests as happy as possible, the resort built an amazing reef in front of their beach. Which also happens to be in our boat’s back yard. And this trip is all about enjoying the water anyway.
Much love from Thailand!
