Koh Chang offers great beaches, coral reefs and lush underwater life. The island is full of vegetation and gorgeous waterfalls. It is a pleasure to have a plunge in the natural swimming pools after a few hours trekking. On the island there are orchards and rubber plantations which are important economic activities for residents. Koh Chang has a rich wildlife. Here are various species of monkeys, some species of aquatic turtles and the tiny Koh Chang frog can be found only on the island. You can see it in our villa Manipura gallery.
Most people and most beautiful beaches are located on the western side of Koh Chang. In the far northwest lies Chang Noi Beach, perhaps the most beautiful and undisturbed beach of all. A popular beach is White Sand Beach which is also the island’s most visited city. Here are the best opportunities to shop or visit restaurants, bars and discos. In southwest you will find Bang Bao with a 100-meter-long bridge, where you find a lot of fishing boats, dive boats and tour boats. On the bridge are countless restaurants and shops. In the southeastern part of Koh Chang you will find Salak Peth, a genuine fishing village which tourism has hardly reached. At the east there is Long Beach which you can reach by boat or a adventurous drive.
