Is a beautiful white sand beach in Thailand, shared with quite literally no one else just the ticket? Well, let us tell you about Koh Kradan. It’s quite possibly one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever seen. This is a picture-postcard island just off the coast of Trang, no villages, no shops and no vehicles; part of the Hat Chao Mai National Park, considered by marine biologists to be the most unspoilt in the country.
If you’re looking for something to go and do while here, then you’re in the wrong place. It’s basically you, a hammock and a book, or the opportunity to spend the day taking in the horizon. There are a few places to sleep scattered along the beach, simple bamboo bungalows, nowhere near in the same class as Thailand’s southern island luxury resorts, but you’ll remember your time here for a completely different reason. Koh Kradan aside, Thailand is home to dozens of islands like these, some are very accessible by day-trips for the popular resort islands by luxury yacht charter.
