An absolute fantasic remote island. Fantasic beaches everywhere and noone(!) there. North part with Sunrise beach was great. We rented moped and it was very safe traffic. Very kind and helpful residents.

This is a great island to explore, get the ferry across with your scooter and just ride.
The ferry is an experience, good, and terrific value. The two of us went across and I asked how much, 60 baht we were told. 120 baht for the two of us I thought was exceptional value. However, when I give him 120 baht he gave me a strange look, and gave us 60 baht back!!

Took a day trip with a guide around the island, spent most of the time traveling in the sidecar. We were taken first to the Ban Thung Tuek ancient city site which was the highlight of the tour. Clearly the island was a major stop off point for traders coming from India and the Middle East and on to China and the Far East. Unfortunately the info centre has suffered from lack of tourists and is in a sad state with the ceilings fallen down. The excavated sites are in good shape so worth a visit if you can find it. After a very bumpy ride across country on farm tracks a short stop at a pond to see water lilies which are rare and only found here and one other island locally in the world.
On the rest of the tour round the island we saw water buffaloes 🐃, a beautiful beach 🏖 a ferry port and shrimp farm at the north of the island. Lunch at Sunee restaurant was great, Tom Yum Goong with huge Prawns from the Shrimp Farm and a couple of beers delicious.

You can catch a small ferry or the car ferry across, if you are on foot it’s not worth going as the ferry port has nothing to offer, the trip across is about 10 minutes.

Took a fast boat for a magical day at Hapla Beach. A real Robinson Crusoe experience. Peaceful retreat far from the madding crown. Had a lovely meal and plenty of refreshments. Highly recommended.

It was our second time on Ko Kho Khao. And again we were not disappointed. Wonderful empty beach, stunning sunsets. Peaceful holiday. A place to visit again.

If you are looking for a holiday with just the sun, sand and sea, this is the island to go to. This island is still very under developed. Most of the roads/streets are not lit at night. Almost all of the resorts on the island are beach facing on the west coast. The beaches are long and picturesque. You have to take a ferry from Baan Namkhem (Takua Pa) to cross over to the island. There are also ferries to take your car across to the island. The crossing takes only 5 minutes. The cost for taking your car and its passengers is only 150THB each way.

A wonderful thai island, a very long and beautiful beach. Instead of people, you will see animals, like buffalo and a lot of different birds on the beach.

Very quiet and beautiful island. Long and picturesque beaches. Getting to the island is very easy. It is only a short boat ride of about 5 minutes in a longtail boat. Most hotels make pick up at the pier.

LOVED Koh Kho Khao Island - quiet, relaxing - good swimming beaches - I stayed at DreamZ Ocean Pearl Resort - it has recently re-opened (December 2018) and I got a great deal. So good to get our of the madness of Patong and just chill out - I did nothing, other than swim and sunbake - exactly what I was looking for. Mama's restaurant, up the beach from the resort is definately worth walking along the beach to - beautiful family and great food - Pirates Bar, at Dreamz Ocean Pearl resort is excellent - brilliant staff, great nightly BBQ and the owner Ko, is very entertaining. Definately will be visiting again:)
