In Ko Phra Thong (North Andaman), tourism is only just emerging. There are more than 15 km of pleasant beaches and about 10 places to stay. Most lodgings are clustered in 2 small bays on the northwest side of the island. The island is perfect for nature lovers who want to get off the beaten track.

Ko Phra Thong also places a strong emphasis on eco-tourism and sustainability. Efforts are made to protect the island’s fragile ecosystems and support local communities. Visitors are encouraged to respect and preserve the island’s beauty.

This remote island is a haven for diverse animals such as barking deer, gibbons, snakes, wild boars and pangolins. It is an ideal spot for birdwatching, with more than 100 species of birds such as the white-bellied sea eagle and the hornbill.

The island is flat and on the east side are several swamps. Enjoy the sand dune landscape, which Thais call the savannah of Ko Phra Thong. There are no ATMs, so make sure to bring cash!

Ko Phra Thong is a bit further from the airports. Fly to Phuket or Ranong and take the bus to Kuraburi. The bus between Ranong and Phuket stops at Kuraburi station. At the pier you can arrange a longtail boat that will drop you off at the island (1500 – 1700 baht).

At some stays it is possible to rent scooters, but keep in mind that there are only a few concrete roads on the island.
