Ao Saunyai, Ko Mak

Ao Saunyai is a beautiful bay with views over the island Ko Kham, in our opinion one of the most beautiful bays on Ko Mak. The bay is surrounded by palm trees, and has pearly white fine sand and clear blue water.

This bay is ideal for swimming, stand-up paddle boarding or relaxing but beware of sand fleas. Be sure to protect yourself against these sand fleas with the special oil and spray sold nearby. We recommend planning a day trip to Ko Kham, for which you can arrange the tickets at many hotels or alternatively at the Koh Mak Info Point.

We love the upper range Seavana Beach Resort on the western end of the beach. They offer lovely bungalows, a well-kept garden and a good swimming pool. In the backyard you will find some bungalows along the small river. If you like an upper range stay, this is the place to be.

An alternative is the Koh Mak Resort, some of the bungalows are close to each other but the family bungalows are spacious. Happy Days Resort is a relaxed, mid-range stay in the northeastern end of the bay, however a little overpriced in our opinion. You can choose between fan or airco bungalows.

You will find some small restaurants along the bay. We recommend I Talay Beach Bar near the pier to grab some food or drinks.
