Okay for stopping off and adding another island to the list. Probably not one you would return to but it's perfectly fine for a couple of nights to explore. Beach is so so but perfectly spotless but doesn't have the wow factor and not the best for swimming. Has a remoteness that some may love but not for everyone. Take... More

we stayed twice at the Ko Jum Beach Villas. Villas are very nice. Food at the restaurant is delicious and not expensive. Dive Center at the Beach Villas is excellent. But there is not a lot to do on this island besides going on dive trips or relax at the beach

This island is really laid back and under developed. Nothing lake the other big islands, this place is clean and low key. Sometimes you are the only one on the beach. We stayed here 5 years ago and this year we decided to do Koh Lanta, had no idea Lanta was so developed and crowded. If you want a nice... More

This is a great little beach, smallish cove, tree lined beach with the odd monkey playing around. A cosy restaurant nestles on the beach, a massage bure and a few palm roofed shelters line up on the sand. So easy to spend the day here, and with a bit of shade on offer is even easier.

It was too silent, even we selfs were not looking for parties at all. The... More

this is the island you want to visit to decompress from society. it's peaceful, friendly, and relaxed. but you can still meet interesting backpacker types from all over the world, and the island residents are lovely folks who seem to be the happiest people around. accommodations are basic, but clean. food is excellent. If you know what you are getting... More
