About Travel to Koh Kradan

Koh Kradan is a small island, 3 km long and 1 km wide, which is located in the centre of a cluster of four popular islands off the coast of Trang. The other 3 islands are Koh Muk, Koh Libong and Koh Ngai. In terms of the best facilities, of the 4 islands Koh Muk is the most comfortable place to stay.

Beautiful beaches in Koh Kradan

However, in respect of the beaches and the quality of the swimming and snorkelling, Koh Kradan is far better than Koh Muk, Koh Libong or Koh Ngai. Koh Kradan is a tropical paradise except, that is, in high season between 10:00 and 16:00 when the island fills up with day trippers. Koh Kradan is relatively expensive for food and accommodation and lots of people who visit Koh Kradan are staying in a more developed and better value place overnight.

Facilities on Koh Kradan

Koh Kradan, described most simply, is an island forest with a beach around most of the outside. The island has no ATM machine, medical facilities or mains electric. Koh Kradan also no settlements of kind, just resorts.

Accommodation in Koh Kradan

Even at their most basic fan bungalows cost upwards of 1,000 THB a night. For modern air-conditioned rooms expect to pay upward of 4,000 THB a night particularly on the main beach on the East side of the island.

The reason the accommodation is expensive is partly because of the remoteness of the island – they need to use generators and import everything else from the mainland on small boats – but mostly because the beaches are perfect and people are prepared to pay high prices to enjoy that. The sand is white, the seas are sheltered and calm and, on the eastern and southern coasts, there is a reef just off the beach which is great for snorkelling.
