Golden Bay, Ko Phra Thong

Our favorite beach in Ko Phra Thong is Golden Bay, overlooking the island of Ko Pho Ta. The beach is very widespread most of the day and even at high tide there is a broad strip of sand. It owes its name to the golden sands and the crystal-clear waters of the Andaman Sea. The beach offers a tranquil and serene setting, making it an ideal destination for relaxation and enjoying nature.

The transparent water is usually calm and lovely to swim in. Go snorkeling with a free kayak to one of the 2 islands close to the beach! It is a short walk to both Gray Bay and Long Beach.

TreasureBeaches list 3 stays on Golden Bay, they are all good places to stay. If you like more comfort, go to Moken Eco Village, they offer nicely decorated bungalows. These bungalows are spread between Golden Bay and Gray Bay.

On the southern part of the Golden Bay are 2 more basic stays. Rakkan Resort has simple bungalows and is not directly on the beach, but only 100 meters away. Horizon Eco Resort has a nice garden and a good restaurant on the beach. Electricity in these 2 stays is available in the evening and at night.

All accommodations have their own restaurant and there are a few alternative places to eat.
