Koh Kham: the well-kept gems off Sattahip

 

A few miles off the coast of Sattahip in the Gulf of Thailand, a small island named Koh Kham is a gem awaiting your visits.

Under the protection by Naval Coast Guard, Koh Kham is declared as a marine national park and now becomes a part of the tropical paradise of the eastern coast.

While other islands in the area are facing development, Koh Kham is left untouched in wilderness and becomes a haven with crystal clear water and neglected sandy beaches where you can enjoy your day trip. One of the highlights, which is especially loved by kayakers and swimmers, is the south beach with a calm sea and nice sand dunes. Moreover, you can explore the tiny islet on a hiking trail which leads to a scenic viewpoint.

With an abundance of shallow water coral reefs and beautiful diverse marine life, tourists can enjoy the underwater sightseeing either by glass-bottom boat or snorkeling.

Recently, the island opened for visits during weekdays to relief the congestion of weekend travelers. Koh Kham can welcome 400 visitors at a time.

Located some 40 kilometers south of the bustling Pattaya, Sattahip is much quieter and offers many beaches. Most of them are in the compound of the Sattahip Naval Base. Public visits are welcomed.

How to get there: Sattahip is 175 kilometers southeast of Bangkok accessible via highway 7. For Koh Kham, booking in advance is necessary via the website https://www.kohkham.com/.
