Underneath Encounters at Koh Yuak

The island of Koh Yuak’s natural setting offers an easy access to tourists who want to visit it. It is one of the small islands which are regarded as excellent spots for scuba diving and snorkeling. The island is covered with lush green vegetation. Its land mass is generally rocky and course with a considerable portion of white beach coastline. It is inhabited by wild plants including bushes, vines, insects, small birds and other wildlife. It is under Koh Chang’s Maritime Protected Park and Mu Koh Chang National Park.


Koh Yuak Island possesses distinct and alluring natural features. It has a narrow white sand beach along its east coast side. Though narrow but the beach is enticing and excellent venue for small group beach escapade. You can take time relaxing by laying your back on the white sand or have a little body toning under the sun. Koh Yuak’s beach clear pristine water is excellent for swimming and some fun dips especially for children because it is shallow but parental guidance is advised. If you want line fishing at the edge of rock cliffs, you need to inform the authority so that you are properly informed how to go with it. Just a few meters off from the beachfront, you can have an enjoyable snorkeling experience where you find variety of fishes getting close to you as if they are tamed naturally to accompany you while bracing through the depths of the island’s sea floor.


If you love the natural scenery of the island from your boat ride you can pull down the anchor within a distance off from the seashore and voila, you can have the best view of it while taking your refreshments or snacks. Koh Yuak Island is truly an excellent place for a quiet and relaxing escapade from pressures of work and demands of city life.  Going around the island of Koh Yuak by kayak takes less time but experience-wise the memory lasts a lifetime.
