White sand beach, some wooden chairs under coconut trees a small place that sell drinks..that's it. Is a small island that can get crowed as soon as speed boats arrive from differents places. There is an unfinished and abandoned hotel project, what a shame because i did like the modern architecture, although nature is growing over the numerous almost finished hotel units, it spoil the natural beauty of the island.
The island is private, as soon as you step on, the land lord will collect 200 baht a person. They do keep the place clean and tidy and you can exchange the 200 baht ticket for a soft drinks. Personally i did enjoy more the 30min kayake trip to get there from kho Mak

The island was once a natural paradise and now it is a construction site and a decaying unfinished hotel left to one side. There is nothing to do on the island apart from a small beach shack selling canned drinks and beer. Swimming and beach wise there are not really enough space as one side of the beach is for docking boats and the other side is under construction.

Please do yourself a favour and not disturb this island and let nature be nature. There are many things to do on Koh Mak that is equivalent to this island.

10 min small-boat ride over to the small island. A not finished ruined nice resort on site, island for sale for 50 Mio USD, would think about it if I would have the money. Spot to see for sure.

We anchored offshore in our charter sailboat and spent a good part of the day swimming, snorkeling and picnicking on this interesting island. There is also a trail leading to high vantage point at the northern end of the island - well worth the 20 minute hike. The unfinished resort buildings are unobtrusive and covered with jungle vines.

Just come from Thailand few days agou. We went from Koh Chang for snorkeling trip to koh Mak and Koh Kham and few other islands. Koh Kham is absolutely beautiful little island , great for snorkeling to see lots of fish. There is even little bar. Nive beach and warm,shallow water. I would go there again.

We took the boat service arranged by Koh Mak Resort. Takes like 5 minutes to reach. The island has a nice and very clean beach. The view is breathtaking. Worth the 200 baht fee. DO NOT MISS IT!

koh kahm is a beautiful small island in the northwest of koh mak. we arrived there with the kajak in the later morning time and we had the spectacular white fine sanday beach nearly for us alone. the vegetation on the beach is reduced, only some coconut palms and trees are growing, the rest of the island consists of a lush djungle vegetation. it is very easy to go there. it takes only 30 minutes with the kajak. it was a windless day and the sea was flat like a mirror. the water there is crystalclear and snorkelers will find nice areas for observing the underwater wildlife. the beach gets very interesting when the low tide arrives, because there is a beautiful rockformation in front of the beach and when the water is low it is very easy to reach them per feet. a big sandbank comes very close to the water surface and it is possible to walk into the sea very far. families with small children will find a perfect beach for splashing in the tupwarm water and everybody will have a lot of fun.
a small kiosk which offers cold drinks and snacks is located, a toilet in western style also.
we stayed on koh kham the whole day and it never gets crowded.
in the afternoon...during low tide there were a little bit more tourists, who came with kajaks or other boats, but it was always enough space to find a shady place under the palms.
we can recomment koh kham very much. when we are back on koh mak will go there again without question. we had a perfect day in the sunshine and it was a pleasure to swim and splash between this spectacular rock formation which is the mainmagnet of this tiny island. a must for every visitor of koh mak.

Koh Kham is an uninhabited island making up a part of the Kham Archipelago in South Eastern Thailand. This tiny island is an (almost) unspoiled paradise and only accessible via boat from Koh Mak or as part of an Island Tour.

The island feature shallow clear waters and a white sand beach. There is a small hut that will sell you a beer or soft drink and perhaps a snack.

I would suggest unless you're a tanning addict that a few hours is sufficient on the island.

Perhaps the most interesting and weird part of the island is the abandoned, unfinished high end resort. I spoke with a friend on neighbouring Koh Mak and he explained that the resort was constructed outside of regulations for the island so construction was stopped a few years back and seemingly the resort has just been left to be taken back by nature. He's convinced it will one day side step the planning restrictions and get finished but for now it is an eery almost apocalyptic contrast to the beautiful beach and interesting to wander round and check out - be aware, I'm not sure you should be wandering around it but no one stopped me taking some brilliant, creepy pics.

We got a long-tail boat from Koh Mak for 300baht and that gave you a free soft drink from the little shack on the island. We stayed until the last boat home and there were perhaps maybe a max of 10 visitors on the island when we were there so there is plenty of space.

Worth the money? Worth a visit? Of course it is - Places like this are getting more and more rare and I suspect if that weird creepy resort is ever finished and open then the charm of the island will be lost so go and see it now before its too late.

Only 6-7 minutes from Koh Mak, and the sand is super white! The island is beautiful, you can get a soft drink for your “entrance” fee. Next to the big rocks you can snorkel, we saw a lot of fish, they are super curious! Then you can lie and enjoy the quiet place!
