Like many other coastal destinations in Southern Thailand, Koh Ngai is renowned for its diving and long white beaches. The port is found on the southwest coast and is part of the Krabi Province, though it can be difficult to reach from Krabi and is much more accessible from Trang on the South Andaman Coast. Despite its incredible beaches and crystal clear waters, Koh Ngai isn’t a mass hotbed of tourism, primarily because of its small land area. It measures to 4 km in length only 2 km wide, and much of the island is covered by mountains and a tropical forest; as a result there is no indigenous population meaning visitors often feel like they have the whole island to themselves. Due to the 100% foreign clientele, the Thai flags and the warm climate are the only hint that the island belongs to Thailand.
Unsurprisingly, due to the mountainous landscapes, there are no roads on the island, therefore the only way to get around is by foot. The island’s small size and the close proximity of the resorts allow tourists to get around easily, as well as getting a chance to admire the beautiful surroundings. The island itself lacks many major attractions, so visitors could be excused for longing to hop on the ferry and make the crossing to some of Thailand’s neighbouring islands. Ferry routes run frequently throughout the day to nearby islands, though crossing frequencies can vary depending on weather conditions.
Fortunately most resorts accept credit cards, but it is worth noting that there are no ATM’s on the island so bringing some extra cash may be worthwhile. Most resorts provide WiFi, and local sim cards can obtain a fairly good 3G internet connection whilst at the beach.
