We went there in the afternoon.
It was my first hiking experience, so it's challenging for me and i took longer to reach the viewpoint 3 ( like around 90mins? ) but the view is definitely worth it.

We traveled from Koh Lipe to Koh Adang staying 2 nights at the Adang Resort. Koh Lipe is so over run. I think there were 10 tourists on Adang while we were there. You will definitely have privacy.
The Adang Resort was great. Food amazing....More
Get a water taxi from the Sunrise beach, Ko Lipe. The journey to Ko Adang was just 20 minutes. Upon arrival, the tourist centre is easily to spot, take a look at the map inside, follow the trail to the hill side. You will pass...More
We visited the west side of Koh Adang on a long tail boat snorkelling tour from Koh Lipe.
It was really nice. The beach was empty and quiet. We had the entire place to ourselves (at least until a couple boats of Chinese tourists arrived)....More
If you do NOT like to party, and would like to have a more peaceful place, try to get accomodation in the 'ranger bungalows'. The island is just 5 minutes boat-ride away.
You can swim, walk, snorkel . there are also tents for rent or...More
I read somewhere online that someone had recommended catching the sunset and having a picnic from the Viewpoint on Koh Adang. So we did, and the views were stunning, however...

Leave the place as you found it.The beaches and the clear water is wonderful on Koh Adang. Koh Adang is a virtually undeveloped island located just 700 meters north of Koh Lipe and has lush greenery .It is lucky that it requires a bit of...More
Just go, one of my favorite spots in all of southern thailand. also, do the private snorkel boat with some other campers on the island, better reefs than ive seen in most places! move your tent for a ocean view and a much needed breeze....More
Koh Adang is like Koh Lipe without the tourists and without the bars.
You can visit here for the day or stay in a National Park bungalow, use a National Park tent or bring your equipment (which I did).
The island is fantastic for hiking...More

Adang is very nice, but I prefer to camp. You will probably fly into Hat Yai and transfer for two hours to Pak Bara, where you will probably overnight. Then you can ferry or speedboat to Adang, The National Park... More
Adang is very nice, but I prefer to camp. You will probably fly into Hat Yai and transfer for two hours to Pak Bara, where you will probably overnight. Then you can ferry or speedboat to Adang, The National Park maintains basic lodging and restaurant. I beach camp and bring my own food so I don't have experience with the restaurant.
If you want to see the island group be sure to hire a Moken local fisherman rather than a speedboat, Support the original aboriginal locals, learn and experience their wisdom. Don't take Speedboats once you are there - notorious for dropping anchor on the coral gardens and I've actually photographed the coral breaking experience.
The Moken consider their neighborhood sacred and it is.
Avoid Rawi's tourist mill and be sure to spend some time at Tarutao NP, Lots to see on Tarutao and the bungalows are OK. A few month's ago I watched Dusky Langurs cavort in the trees at the Park store. (No, they are not fed by people.)
Take that Moken longtail to the outer beaches and you won't forget the entire Tarutao experience.
