Double Treat at Koh Ngam Island

Koh Ngam Island is just a few hundred meters (approximately between 400-500 meters) off the southern coast of Koh Chang and can be reached by boat or by paddling a kayak. It is a small island with a very narrow sand dune that forms a gorgeous contour holding the northeast and southwest section of the island together. The almost kidney-shaped island of Koh Ngam would look like two separate islands from afar. Besides holding the island in one piece, the sand dune created two crescent-shaped lagoons which are only 50 meters apart.

 

The two lagoons in the island of Koh Ngam are excellent for swimming, snorkeling, diving, or fishing. Corals and fishes of different sizes, colors and kinds are abundant. Occasionally, you may see dolphins in the area. For the more adventurous, a hike up the rocks to a 100 meter-tall hill on the southwest side of Koh Ngam Island is both challenging and rewarding. Ropes are provided to guide you. Over the hill is a white sand beach where you will also see plenty of corals and other marine life. Lying your back at the surface of the white sandy beach creates a soothing effect as the ebbs along the shore make some free flows. The crystal clear water is just too hard to resist for fun diving and swimming. With the sea breeze at its purest state, doing inhaling and exhaling exercise along the beach is totally refreshing to the lungs.

 

The beach serves as an excellent point for beautiful island sights. It is also a great place to watch the sunset. The island of Koh Ngam is ideal for a family vacation. There is only one resort in Koh Ngam, the Twin Island Resort, which offers only full board packages. You can take lunch or dinner at the resort in case you forget to bring your own food provision or you simply like to experience dining at the resort.  Fresh-water ponds are found on the island. A waterfall flows across the island during the rainy season.
