Koh Suwan – An Island of Many Surprises

Koh Suwan which is also known as Goh Suvan ang Kau Suwan belongs to the 52 islands of Koh Chang which is wholly declared as Marine National Park. It is estimated 3 kilometers from Ban Phai Bae beach and 4.2 kilometers from Ban Klong Prao. Starting from any of the two near points it can be reached by a paddle boat especially when the weather is good and the sea is calm.


The island of Koh Suwan is frequently visited by tourists coming from the different surrounding beaches and hotels. It is becoming a favorite destination for some island hopping adventures.  From the exterior look of it one cannot see a great deal out of it.  But Koh Suwan has considerable features to boast about.


It has a small beach which is ideal for private swimming and camping. Its shoreline offers avenue for short walks and great sea viewing. If you prefer snorkeling, a sheltered cove is the best place to do it. Its seabed is bedecked with protected corals of different kinds, colors and forms. Fishes of many varieties in stripes, colors and sizes as they swayed along with the rhythm of green seaweeds are just perfect snapshot subjects. Locals fishing from the rocks of the northern tip of the island are a common sight to behold. You can go around the island by kayak and experience the natural beauty of the green crown of Koh Suwan and its crystal blue water.


You can also join bobbing around at the rocky western side of the island to do bird watching and numerous small crabs creeping around on rocks formation. At the island’s  southern tip stands a little rock archway with white sand floor where you can lay down and enjoy the sun and  feel the cool sea breeze of the surroundings. Then you can go back to your hotel refreshed and relaxed.
