Baracuda Koh Chang, Dining In A Family Type Setting

Baracuda Koh Chang

Baracuda Koh Chang

With somewhat of a concealed location, Baracuda is somewhat of a Koh Chang Restaurant waiting to be discovered and, once you are lucky enough to locate it, your local dining on the island of Koh Chang will be taken care of.


This is definitely not the place to come if you’re looking for some fast food – you come here for an intimate, cosy family oriented dining experience, with the owners presenting a united family front, the father and daughter out and about, serving the guests and mingling with them and the mother cooking away in the kitchen to produce dishes that have that special ingredient called love.


You simply don’t get more personal than the Baracuda Koh Chang Restaurant with a lot of little extras offered that’ll add to the authenticity of your overall Thailand experience.


While the menu makes for some of the widest variety of Thai cuisine, prepared the traditional way with a special touch that reeks of family recipe secrets, the Baracuda dining experience goes beyond the simple arrangement of ordering food and waiting for it to get ready. A lot of culture goes into the entire process with the owner’s personal touch spewed all over the show.


Fancy some locally produced art with your dish? Well, the owner is quite an avid artist, with an extensive collection of some of his best works lining the walls of the restaurant, giving it a unique look, but you can also buy one or two for yourself, if any of the pieces speak to you.


As if in a bid to consolidate his personal touch, the owner actually goes out and catches the produce himself which is a good indication of someone who strongly believes in the saying “If you want something done properly, do it yourself”.


Disappointment is not on the menu at Baracuda Koh Chang Restaurant and this is backed up by the tight family clique that runs the place to perfection.

White Sand Beach is good for:

night live

sandy beach

variety of restaurants

Koh Chang's most famous stretch of sand, at over 2km long there's certainly room for everyone! Lined with bungalows, food stalls and shops this is one of the best beaches in all of Thailand.

tranquil surroundings

gorgeous rocky landscape

all sorts of activities

quiet and peaceful

Short description:

Situated on the somewhat less glamorous, northern side of the Koh Chang Island, Klong Prao isn’t all that much of tourist destination, especially for those who are in need of a true holiday experience of the exotic kind.

Lonely Beach is good for:

great sunset

cheap and peaceful retreat

all sorts of beach activities

perfect for family

Short description:

Also known as Kai Bae Beach, this is the spot to catch a great sunset! A few small shops and food stalls are along the beach, a good spot to chill out away from the crowds at White Sands Beach.

Bangbao Bay is good for:


seafood restaurants



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.

Salak Khok Bay is good for:

pretty, unspoiled area

traditional Thai community


quiet and peaceful

Short description:

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.
