Ko Jum

Guesthouses, hotels and resorts

Budget accommodation is found all over Ko Jum, with only a handful of mid- to upper-range options available. We felt that the best backpacker scene was found at isolated Lubo Beach to the far north, followed by Southern Andaman Beach in the far south. Northern Andaman Beach and Golden Pearl Beach blend together to offer a good range of options, including a few places that are geared to families. Ao Si and Ao Ting Rai will both do the trick for those who prefer smaller beaches. On the north coast, Banyan Bay's lone midrange place to stay is a comfy and secluded option.

Lubo Beach

Reachable only by sea or a long and bumpy road that winds around Mt Pu, Lubo Beach has an ultra-relaxed atmosphere that's rivalled only by Ko Jum's far southern beach. If you're looking to get away from it all and are fine with basic accommodation, this is a great choice.

    In an idyllic setting where North Beach juts out slightly into the sea, the only thing that's not creative about Sunset Beach is the name. Perched right over the sand, a recently refurbished swinging ... Read the full review of Sunset Beach Bungalows.

Banyan Bay

There's only one place to stay on Banyan Bay's small and isolated beach that's a bit grainier than the others but still very beautiful.

Ao Ting Rai

Though it's not too far from the traveller services in Baan Ting Rai, the same-named beach has an isolated feel thanks to the somewhat treacherous dirt road that links it to the village. Don't forget that mosquito repellent.

Ao Si

Ao Si beach retains a secluded atmosphere despite being so close to the restaurants and services of Baan Ting Rai.

Golden Pearl Beach

Centrally located Golden Pearl Beach is named after amber-hued rocks that collect under the beach pines. There's no break between Golden Pearl and Andaman beaches, making very long walks on the sand possible from here.

Northern Andaman Beach

The wide northern stretch of Andaman Beach has accommodation to suit all budgets.

Southern Andaman Beach

The far south of Ko Jum's west coast has an ultra-laid-back atmosphere that can only be matched by Lubo Beach at the opposite end of the island. It was Ko Jum's first area to see bungalows rented out to travellers, with a couple of the originals still open for business. Most of the resorts here shut down during the rainy season.
