We went to Ko Poda on the last day of the long Songkran holiday period. What a mistake. The island was the destination of everyone from high school students to foreign tourists. You could barely get a space to lay down your mat and just relax.
Having said that, Ko Poda is indeed a beautiful place. Shady trees on the beach shield you from the sun. Snorkeling is good here, with clear waters and assorted tropical fish. The beachfront is not wide but long enough for some R&R.

Went there during 13-16 April (Songkran holiday, Thai new year). The corals were nice but the fish were really attractive. The guide constantly threw bread crumbs into the sea (where we were snorkelling) so the fish kept swimming towards us. They were really small fish, lots of plankton bit us but its just part of the experience. Amazing fun. Beware of the sharp corals and sea urchins.

Great for Snorkelling! Water was clear and you could see lots of fish! Amazing site for snorkelling! Make sure you go to somewhere hidden from wave though.

Had sunset barbecue dinner (the dinner was average) but the place was great.

Always keep towels with you.... (large ones) and in case you don't want to get sand every time you take a sit... you can keep small plastic sheet (don't burden yourself with a lot of baggage you will miss the relaxed walk..)
