Appreciating the Beauty of Koh Krabung through Creative Ways

Koh Krabung is one of the small islands situated along the southeastern coast of Koh Chang. The nearest island to its western side is Ao Luek which is approximately 1100 meters away. At its southwestern side of 1.5 kilometers distance are Ban Ao Luek and Koh Ngam. Koh Lom which is at its southern side is more or less 1.7 kilometers away.  The island of Koh Krabung is covered by green vegetation mostly of small hard trees and wild bushes. It is under Koh Chang Marine National Park and its natural and unspoiled state is well preserved and taken care of.


The physical appearance of Koh Krabung Island is often misjudged. It has no white sandy beach and even no area to sit back and relax. Its coastal lines are generally made of rocks. But Koh Krabung is surrounded by clear and pristine water which is good for fun swimming dives and snorkeling. Tourists can enjoy the good views of its nearby islands and gulf by dropping the boat’s anchor closer the island’s rocky coastal side. You can still enjoy your favorite book at the sway of your boat ride and the stillness of the sea. The idea of island trekking or mountain climbing in Koh Krabung Island is not remote. You need to inquire and ask permission from the authority.


Its unchartered surface will surely make some fun and adventure experiences for tourists looking for real actions. You can also take some wacky or serious island photo snaps for memory safekeeping, social media posting or souvenir purposes.  One can enjoy the wonders of underwater adventure by scuba diving. You can have an exciting encounter underneath with the different marine life including corals, sea plants, fish and others sea creatures of varying sizes, colors and kinds. The seabed of the island of Koh Krabung is a showcase of underwater world of natural gems which are unseen from the island’s surface.
