The small island of Koh Lom is part of the group of islands in the district of Koh Chang. It is part of Mu Koh Chang National Park and Koh Chang Marine National Park. Koh Lom Island is situated at the southeast coast of Koh Chang Island near the entrance of the bay at the south of Koh Ngam Island. Its physical land mass looks like a large conical rock rising out from the sea with its apex pointing to the sky.
Many travelers considered Koh Lom Island as no good site to visit because it lacks many features like white sand beachfront or flat area to take some comfort to relax or unwind compared to other islands nearby. Though small and exteriorly not pleasing to the eyes, Koh Lom is naturally a virgin island since its existence. It has no traces of human activities. Its unspoiled condition offers a natural habitat for small wild trees, bushes, insects, small birds, ants and other unknown crawling living creatures. Its exterior look gives the impression of sturdiness due to the rocky foundation the island sits on.
Paddling around the island is a fun thing to do. Its exposed rugged, rocky terrain tickles one’s imagination and curiosity through questions like, “What’s inside from those exposed cracks?” and “Are there big snakes inside those open cracks?” But for adventurers questions are part of the driving elements to real adventures. Another natural sight when you go around the island of Koh Lom near its rocky coastline is some small bird’s nests hanging from branches of the trees which have some nestlings chirping for food. The surrounding water is pristine and clear and inviting. You can practically do swimming by dropping the boat’s anchor near the coastline of Koh Lom.
The clear view of the island’s seabed is excellent for snorkeling. Scuba diving is also a good underwater adventure where marine life is at best state as under protection of Koh Chang Marine National Park.
