Ko Libong

The Thai food offered by Ko Libong's resorts is of a relatively high standard, with seafood not surprisingly being consistently fresh.

While there are a handful of hole-in-the-wall local restaurants on the east side of the island near the pier and along the main road, most foreign visitors will eat only at the resorts, and fortunately these offer some pretty good Thai food.

Libong Sunset Resort has an exclusively Thai food menu, with nearly all of its options being seafood. We tried a simple pad prik khung (shrimp chilli stir-fry) and found it to be tasty, although the portion could have been larger. That said, Sunset has the cheapest prices of all the resorts.

Le Dugong's food was a step up as far as flavour and portion size, but they seem to never have more than half their menu on offer.

Libong Beach Resort's menu has an unimpressive appearance and it seems expensive at first glance with most dishes running around 200 baht. The portions are large, however, and the flavour and general quality of the food is exceptional. We tried a green curry with seafood that featured huge chunks of fresh and delicious crab meat along with squid, fish, shrimp and veggies, and the dish was perfectly seasoned with kaffir lime and chillies. The som tam was also fresh and very well balanced in seasoning. Libong Beach Resort also offers Western breakfasts, burgers, and some very refreshing and yummy fruit shakes.

Finally, if you're hungry for something to munch on other than resort food, there are a couple small storefronts on the main road just past the turn for Libong Beach Resort and Le Dugong where you can pick up chips, cookies and basic necessities, but go early -- the stores close up by 14:00.
