Paradise on Earth- Koh Rang

Moo Koh Rang is a group of 12 islands to the west of Koh Mak in the National Park of Thailand. Of these islands Koh Rang is the biggest of all. The islands of Koh Kara, Thong Lang and Koh Thian are on the northeast of Koh Rang. The best thing about the island is that it is inhabited. Near to a spectacular sheltered bay, on the northeast of the island is the National Park Ranger station.


The island is covered with alluring virgin rainforests and is surrounded by the beautiful and longest beach in the area, they Had San Chao or San Chao Beach. The sand on the coastline is powdery white and the water is sparkling crystal clear which makes it safe for swimmers. Divers can go 25 meter deep into the water to enjoy the underwater picturesque beauty. Numerous small and large hills give a beautiful landscape to Koh Rang Island. As the water is not very deep, so it’s not appropriate to bring a speed boat except when there is a high tide. Snorkeling can be done too!


Camping at the Koh Rang Island is allowed after taking permission from National Park Ranger Station on a small fee. Tourists can prepare their own food and the facility of a small restaurant is also present which serves exotic foods in comfortable environment. Good news for tourists is that new bungalows are constructed at the Ranger station, so it will soon be possible for tourists to stay on this heavenly place. Although the accommodation is not provided yet at the Island, facility of public toilet is present.    


As Koh Rang Island is a small island so many speed boats do not stop there. They may anchor at southernmost beach or the smaller northwest beach. If tourists are staying at National Park restaurant he has to rent a boat privately to reach the island.

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.
