You’ll find restaurants, a hotel, and a few typical boutiques. The island is about 3500m long and 1500m wide and has five magnificent beaches (Patok Bay, Siam Bay, Lh Bay, Ter Bay and Kon Kare Bay) that you will discover as you adventure the small paths filled with coconut trees and tropical vegetation.
As you roam around, you will even be able to sight buffalos and other animals that occupy the island.

The most frequented beach is “Patok Bay”(Batok), a beautiful and long beach of white sand where you will be able to sip delicious cocktails as you tan or swim in crystal clear waters.
