    Koh Nang Yuan

    flag Thailand

    Koh Nang Yuan is a unique paradise that is both a haven for marine life and an Eco-resort, allowing visitors to stay on one of three islands that make the place one of the wonders...

Koh Nang Yuan, while considered to be one island, is actually a set of three islands, or rocky outcrops, connected by two strips of white coral-sand that serve as beach during low tide, and that disappear under the clear water when it rises.

While it looks like a paradisiac place secluded in the middle of nowhere, the truth is completely the opposite.  Koh Nang Yuan is located just a 15 minutes long tail boat ride from Koh Tao – in fact, you could almost swim from the closest point of Koh Tao to Koh Nang Yuag… but don’t try it as there are strong currents!

There are many ways to get to Koh Tao, but the most common one is by taking the overnight train/bus to Chumphon and from there the morning ferry to Koh Tao.

I knew I wanted to experience Koh Nang Yuan properly, so I chose to stay there instead of taking a day trip.  Best decision I made and I recommend you to do the same!

There is only one resort at Koh Nang Yuan –since it is a private island– but the price for a budget cabin is not that bad, considering the location. (My friend and I paid 1,600 Bahts for a night).  One of the reasons I think staying there outweighs the accommodation price is the fact that you can enjoy the island ALL day.
