Satellite Islands

The pyramid of Koh Chan Noi

Mu koh chang national park is the abode of some wonderfully exotic islands, over forty in number. With the vast ocean all around, all these islands offer a wide variety of experiences for any type of tourist. When some of these islands are large and popular with their splendid beaches and beach resorts, there are quite a few islands which most of the times go unnoticed except on voyages towards some other islands. A very typical example of one such inconspicuous island is Koh Chan Noi. It forms part of the group of islands on the south-east of the Mu koh chang national park and offers a very different perspective of the island panorama than the usual beach-and-shore islands.


The most salient feature of Koh Chan Noi is its appearance itself.  Shaped in the form of a pyramid, the island looks like a prehistoric piece of rock having its own myriad world of life and death.  Most tourists who pass by the island seldom give it much thought.  This is due to the fact that the island does not have to offer any type of entertainment activity as its very structure is not suited for that.  This island would rather stand as a unique piece of the earth’s architectural wonders than lend its arms to the world to be exploited for its resources.  Lying off Koh Mai See Yai’s eastern tip, the island stands as a lone pyramid, and is often a gathering station for local fishermen. 


It is a typical thing to find groups of fishermen on your way around Koh Chan Noi towards Koh Mai See Yai. However, the island is not a safe place to engage in snorkeling because of the proximity of the rock pieces all around it.  The best way to approach Koh Chan Noi would be in kayaks, if you want to explore the island directly.

Short description:

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.

There aren’t so much attraction in Salak Kok, but tourists can Kayak among the mangroves. Salak Kok Bay still has a fishing community that doesn’t change so much in many years, a great place to see the real traditional Thai community.
