“best soul searching beach”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

I came here alone and i can say that i fell in love with this small island! its nothing compared to the other crowded beaches.. in this island only couples come here and why not as ive read reviews online that this is where they go for those underwater marriages.. Cool isnt it? But what i appreciated the most is that there are no beach vendors to bother you, the beach itself is almost deserted (even on high season that i went) so you'll have more time to relax on the beach and not worry about anything else. I especially love the sunset beach.. got drunk and passed out alone when i woke up everything was fine with my belongings beside me.. there were some couples bathing nearby which couldnt care about you coz they were preoccupied with themselves maybe on a honey moon. So all in all if you wanted to escape the hustle and bustle of a city like and just be with yourself, then this is the best island for you to go on the weekends..

“Fall in love with Andaman”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

The beach is so beautiful with white sand and blue sky. We stayed for 3days 2 nights at Sevensea resort. Eventhough We expect for five-stars service as we pay for all as package but not. The most disappoint but important to improve for them is their reception , they look unfriendly and lazy.
However the beach and the sea is very beautiful until make us ignore their service. The good things for this resort is good bed to sleep. We spent almost time on the boat trip to Koh Rok , Koh Mook than stay only at the resort then it's fine for us.
We stayed at beachfront villa. The sea is so clear until we can see many fish from the beach. I already fall in love with Andaman. Hope to back again.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Really enjoyed our daytrip to the island. Good food and excellent snorkling. Only minus was all the day tourists that came from Trang and Koh Lanta.

“Beautiful island but boring and overpriced”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

This island could have it all but have issues with trash on the far end of the main beach. The sunset beach is also trashy. It is very little to do on this island so I don't recommend more than 4-5 days to stay.

Expect to pay three times more than the mainland, and double the prices of Koh Lanta and other places around.

“Nice nothing-to-do island..”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

We chose this island for a quiet time. But beware you might get bored if you are restless! We enjoyed walks on the beach and thai massage, but there is not much else to do. All restaurants close down between breakie/lunch and lunch/dinner. I dont think i would have travelled here with kids if they get bored easily, but for relaxing as a couple or alone its perfect! Ok snorkling of the beach, but the tide is untrusty.
