An idealic little blink-and-you'll-miss-it island barely a kilometre from Ko Maak, Ko Kham was once the perfect spot to really get away from it all.

Crystal-clear waters and a number of coral reefs made the island popular with the snorkelling crowd and many boat outings from Ko Chang stopped here for an hour or two to have a look into the not-so-deep.

A series of black volcanic rocks jut out of the snow-white sand on the island's eastern beach, and for those on the island they made for quite a scenic backdrop on a sunny day.

However in 2008 this all changed and the island was sold to an individual who is now busy redeveloping the island -- the long running Ko Kham Resort has closed down.

It's unclear if daytrips to the island will remain possible once the construction is complete, but in the meantime you'll need to recalibrate your travel plans accordingly.


In the past, the island was most easily reached by boat from Ko Maak, but given the number of boat operators in the area, there were any number of other possibilities for ending up here.
