Koh Phayam, Thailand; the less touchable island in Andaman Sea

Have you ever heard of an island called “Koh Phayam”, one of the last remaining unspoilt islands in Thailand? Do you know where it’s located? Let me share with you guys some details about this hidden gem.

 

Koh Phayam is the second largest island in the Andaman Sea in Ranong Province. What makes this island is a must place to visit once in your life? The answer is down below :)

How did I get there?

I took an overnight bus from the Southern Bus Terminal (Sai Tai Mai) in Bangkok to Ranong province at 8.30 PM, arriving around 6 AM then I stayed over night in Ranong to chillax before heading to Koh Phayam by the slow boat at 9 AM. That takes about 2 hours and costs 150 baht ($5). There are also speedboats, which cost 400 baht ($13) and takes 45 minutes. As I couldn’t get into the room until midday so there was no rush for me to take the speedboat.

Where did I stay?

I have stayed at “The Blue Sky Resort” known as the “Maldives of Thailand”. It’s located so close to the Koh Phayam pier. Easy to access. Why is The Blue Sky Resort is called the Maldives of Thailand? Because whenever it’s filled with water at high tide, it will give the Maldives’ atmosphere. I recommend that if you want to stay there, choose zone R. You can jump in to the water from your room. Cool isn’t it? Anyways the villas itself is new and very nice and well equipped by good facilities and amenities. So why not come here?

How to explore the island?

Renting a motorbike (250 baht/$8.5 per day) might be only way to allow you to get places on this island.

 

What beaches I fell for?

Ao Yai (meaning “big bay”)

The beach is about 2 km long and is known as the most famous beach destination on Koh Phayam’s west coast and is still a laid back place with breath-taking view. The beach itself is a fine white sandy beach lined by pine trees. The best of the best was I didn’t really find lots of sunbeds and umbrellas here. Loved it!

Ao Khao-Kwai

The beach’s name is from being shaped like a buffalo’s head and horns, it’s located on northwest of Koh Phayam. The sea is clear, the sand is so fine, such a good place for swimming or snorkeling. I didn’t get bored of spending hours and hours on the beach at all. The reason was not only the view in front of me was so perfect, but also someone I was spending time with is so amazing. Lucky me. Anyways I guarantee that watching the sunset there could become one of unforgettable moments for you guys.

It’s a secret spot of Koh Phayam. How to get there? Follow a dirt track through the jungle from Ao Khao-Kwai until you reach this beach at the northern tip of Koh Phayam. It’s a peaceful beautiful beach that you shouldn’t miss.

  2. Looks like my kinda beach :)

  3. This island sounds awesome – and those bungalows are sweet! I’m definitely going to have to check it out. The closest I’ve seen was visiting Koh Pu, just off of Krabi. It was a great find, and there was only 3 other travellers who had found our beach while we were there in almost a whole week! Thanks for the tip, Ja!
