About Travel to Koh Kood

Measuring 22 km by 10 km, Koh Kood is Thailand’s fifth largest island, with a tiny population estimated to be in the region of 2.000 to 2,500.

Koh Kood is Underdeveloped

It’s a long journey to reach Koh Kood and other upper west coast islands, such as Koh Chang, which are easier to reach tend to attract more tourists. From Bangkok the journey to Koh Kood on a direct bus and ferry service takes around 9 hours. Travelling in the other direction, from Cambodia, the final stage of the journey is a sea crossing that takes 2 hours 20 minutes in a high speed catamaran ferry.

A lot of the visitors Koh Kood attracts go there to stay in a luxury resort. What is possibly Thailand’s most luxurious beach front resort, Soneva Kiri Resort & Residences, is located in Koh Kood. When staying on Koh Kood many tourists choose to spend their time in their resort making the most of the amenities and the beach immediately adjacent to their accommodation. There are more cheaply priced places to stay on Koh Kood, but in general food and accommodation in Koh Kood is more expensive than islands such as Koh Lanta and Koh Chang and this puts off a lot of younger travellers.

Beaches and Villages in Koh Kood

Koh Kood is generally considered to have 7 beaches, all of which feature white sand and clear waters safe for swimming during the tourist season from November through to May each year. The beaches are all located on the western side of the island. Possibly the best beach on the island is Klong Hin Beach, although Klong Chao Beach is also very nice, and the other beaches are not far behind in terms of natural beauty. There aren’t any bad beaches in Koh Kood.

The largest settlement in the island, Ao Salut where the main ferry pier is located, is very small with around 300 residents. Ao Salut has a temple, some restaurants, some shops and one of Koh Kood’s 3 ATM machines. Ao Salut, however, doesn’t have a beach and few visitors choose to stay there overnight.

Waterfalls in Koh Kood

Koh Kood has three significant waterfalls located in the interior of the island: Khlong Yai Kee, Huang Nam Khiao and Khlong Chao. Khlong Chao is the largest of these three waterfalls with a large pool underneath the falls which you can swim in. You need your own transport to reach any of the three falls. From the place where need to park your vehicle it’s then a walk of 20 minutes to over an hour to reach the falls depending upon which of the three waterfalls you are planning to visit.
