Ultimate Koh Chang Relaxation on Bailan Beach

In the south western part of Thailand's island of Koh Chang, lies a quiet little Eden within a paradise, which operates as somewhat of a hidden treasure to the unsuspecting Koh Chang holiday makers.


This part of the island is less known to many because it is part of the bigger area of the National Marine Park, making it ideal for those who want to get away from the big crowds, the noisy party animals and constant bother of large tourist groups.


Bailan Beach is great for ultimate Koh Chang relaxation, with a number of nearby guesthouses and resorts, catering almost exclusively to this part of the beautiful island of Koh Chang.


This part of the island is almost exclusively designed for those who have a different view of what entertainment is, away from the razzmatazz of the drinking and dancing, clubbing crowds, but more towards enjoying a nice, quiet relaxed environment.


Bailan Beach is very nice and quiet, very compact too and in the unlikely event that you bump into other tourists here, there are not likely to be many of them and it can almost be guaranteed that they will be like-minded, in that they also like to enjoy a relaxed environment in peace and quiet.


You can have a nice lay about in the sun, constantly looking over at the surroundings to complete your picture perfect moment, or enjoy a nice, quiet barbeque nearby.


If you really don't want to get any activity done, a number of nearby restaurants are available, where you can get some nice food or drinks, but expect nothing to the tune of the mainstream part of the island.


A lot of people who stay in and around Bailan Beach, who are not really into the quiet, serene environment, choose to join the rest of the crowds by day and only come back to get in some sleep later.

Klong Son Beach is good for:

peace and quiet

sandy beach



Short description:

Klong Son beach (or Had Klong Son) is located on the north of Koh Chang. Nice bay at the very top of the island. Pure white sand stretch of beach, shaded with coconut trees. Klong Son gets very low numbers of visitors with the bulk of the backpackers and tourists alike speeding south enroute to Koh Chang's finer and more popular stretches of sand.

White Sand Beach is good for:

night live

sandy beach

variety of restaurants


Short description:

Koh Chang's most famous stretch of sand, at over 2km long there's certainly room for everyone! Lined with bungalows, food stalls and shops this is one of the best beaches in all of Thailand.

Klong Phrao Beach is good for:

tranquil surroundings

gorgeous rocky landscape

all sorts of activities

quiet and peaceful

Short description:

Situated on the somewhat less glamorous, northern side of the Koh Chang Island, Klong Prao isn’t all that much of tourist destination, especially for those who are in need of a true holiday experience of the exotic kind.

Lonely Beach is good for:

great sunset

cheap and peaceful retreat

all sorts of beach activities

perfect for family

Short description:

Also known as Kai Bae Beach, this is the spot to catch a great sunset! A few small shops and food stalls are along the beach, a good spot to chill out away from the crowds at White Sands Beach.

Bangbao Bay is good for:


seafood restaurants



Short description:

A well-sheltered bay with a small and quiet beach. It is a fishing community where residents still live in houses built on stilts and are connected by wooden bridges. There are a growing number of tourist shops, scuba dive outlets and seafood restaurants offering a good selection of seafood.

Salak Khok Bay is good for:

pretty, unspoiled area

traditional Thai community


quiet and peaceful

Short description:

There aren’t so much attraction in Salak Kok, but tourists can Kayak among the mangroves. Salak Kok Bay still has a fishing community that doesn’t change so much in many years, a great place to see the real traditional Thai community.
