This corner of paradise is lined with tall palm trees and has been deemed as one of the best spots to experience the sun set in Koh Chang. Feel the soft sand under your feet as you relax in the shade and watch the sky merge into a mixture of red and orange.
This beach has such an entrancing atmosphere that you will never feel alone here, despite the name! The water here is deep enough for swimming and there are often live gigs and fire shows to attend.

This waterfall on the west coast can be found down a winding forest path. Revel at the water cascading or dive from one of the small cliffs in the plunge pool.
Khlong Nonsi Waterfall
This waterfall is located in the southern part of the island and is known for its natural beauty. The waterfall is surrounded by dense forest and has several levels, making it an ideal spot for trekking and exploring.
The first of the small neighbouring islands of Koh Wai is renowned for its skorkelling spots. Koh Wai is the ideal haven to escape the business of modern life and is the epitome of peace. In addition, Koh Kood and Koh Mak are another two islands located on the eastern side of the gulf of Thailand that are not to be missed! Koh Kut, also known as Koh Kood, is a secret that Thailand has been reluctant to share! After your Ko Chang boat rental, you should head straight for Koh Kut.

Absolutely! On our Click&Boat platform, you have the option to choose from a skipper and/or crewed yacht charter. A skippered yacht is highly recommended as it allows you to discover Ko Chang in a completely different way. Not only are our skippers navigation experts and will take charge of the technical aspects such as docking, anchoring etc. but they are usually members of the local community. They will know the area like the back of their hand and will possibly show you some hidden gems!
However, if you do have the requisite sailing knowledge, and are interested in searching for a “bareboat charter near me”, the filter “without skipper” can be applied to find the yacht to suit you!
The vessel that you and your passengers decide to charter will depend on your need and specifications. Your Ko Chang boat rental can be filtered according to size, duration of your trip and party size. If you are aiming to book a week-long charter, we highly recommend catamarans, yachts and sailboats. Should you wish to book a day-long charter, Motorboats, Jet Skis and RIBs are the optimal choice. As you browse through the Click&Boat website, you can apply the available filters such as price, capacity and superowner to help you find the perfect yacht rental.
Ko Chang pier is an option to dock your yacht rental. Koh Ngam anchorage is also another choice should you wish to visit the National Park during your yacht rental in Koh Chang.
