Koh Kood

Koh Kood, also reported as Koh Kuut or Koh Koot, is an amazing island in the Koh Chang Archipelago, the second largest after the main island. The landscape of island is characterized by a mountainous terrain with lush tropical vegetation, which covers more than 80% of island and is rich in streams that give rise to several waterfalls. The coastline is dotted of stunning white sand beaches with pristine turquoise waters and shallow reefs. Ao Salad, the village on the north-western coast built on stilts, is the biggest fishing center of the island. Koh Kood does not have a coastal road that covers the entire perimeter as Koh Chang, the few and narrow roads, just over 2 meters in wide, are limited to two main roads, only partially paved, which connects the pier in Ao Salad Bay in the north-eastern to Laem Hin Dam and Ao Taphao on the west coast, and other one which connects Ao Taphao to Ao Yai on the south eastern coast. Public transport is almost non-existent; there are scooters and bikes to rent to visit the island, but never forget to be careful because the roads are narrow and often with slopes and dangerous curves. In the early 2000s, with the great tourist development of nearly Koh Chang, Koh Kood has begun to be an exciting destination for hikers from nearby main island. Only in the last decade investors have started to build hotels and village resorts on island. Koh Kood thanks to its wonderful beaches, the crystal clear waters and unspoiled nature has become a great opportunity for the most prestigious hotel chains. However the island still escapes the mass tourism, like the nearby Koh Mak, offering itself to a market focused on Eco and VIP tourism. Hotels and facilities are limited in number, few exclusive structures for an exclusive clientele so as not to overcrowd the island, and they were also built in search of maximum respect for the environment, this also thanks to the will of government authorities and residents who are working to ensure peace and serenity to the few and lucky tourists coming into this pristine island. Ultimately Koh Kood is an exclusive destination for a relaxing holiday in a corner of paradise.
Getting there - During high season Koh Kood is easily accessible from Koh Chang and Koh Mak. Bag Bao Speedboats and Kai Bae Huts Nor Nou Speedboats provide the link service between the three islands. The fast boats depart from their piers in Bang Bao and Kai Bae, first the boats moor at the nearest Koh Mak and then reach Koh Kood. Journey time from Koh Chang is around 2 hours and ticket costs 900 THB per person for one way, 500 THB and 1 hour trip from Koh Mak. Both companies operate just a round trip in the morning; hence the excursions to Koh Kood must include at last one overnight stay. The speedboat services operate only eight months in the year, during the rainy season is out of service, so if you need to reach Koh Kood from Koh Chang or Koh Mak in this period you have to go back first to Laem Ngop on mainland, and then reach the Laem Sok Pier from where leave the speedboats to Kod Kood about 35 km to south.
