Ao Si, Ko Jum

In our opinion, Ao Si is the best beach on Ko Jum. It is an intimate beach with only a few simple overnight accommodations. Ao Si is one of the picturesque bays of the island. The beach is known for its soft, golden sands and quietness, making it an ideal destination to enjoy the natural beauty of the island. Dream away for a moment while enjoying the view of the palm trees.

Most accommodations can be found on the south side of the beach. The north side of the bay is quiet, although here you can find monkeys on the beach. Climb the small hill for a panoramic view and take some nice holiday pictures.

The sea at Ao Si is usually calm and tranquil, especially during the high season (November to April). Pay attention to the swimming conditions at low tide since the coast is rocky. Nonetheless, there are still places where you are able to jump into the water safely.

Sun Smile Beach Bungalow and Cha Cha Bungalows are good budget options which offer simple but clean bungalows located at a good swimming section of the beach. At the northern part of the beach, Ao Si Bungalows is just reopening (March 2023) although some repairs are still needed.

Koh Jum Seafront and Jungle Hill Bungalows are located on the south part of the beach, where the wooden bungalows are built on the hillside. Please note that at low tide swimming, is not possible near Koh Jum Seafront and Jungle Hill Bungalows, you have to walk 100 meters to Sun Smile Beach Bungalow.

All stays have restaurants and there is a beach bar. Another option would be to walk 10 minutes to the main road where you will find some alternative places to eat.
