A by-product of the threatened development of the island is a very rough and rocky road which connects Koh Touch village with the Sangkat village and Seven-kilometre beach.
Adventurous souls can hire mountain bikes or motorbikes to explore the island, but we only recommend this for those with experience. The road is generally deserted, there are big rocks and very skiddable loose stones, and there will not be someone immediately to hand if you come off.
Quality secondhand Japanese mountain bikes are available from Paradise Bungalows for $15 a day, while Kylie at the Sangkat village hires out 110cc motorbikes for $10 per four-hour session, plus fuel costs. He'll deliver them to the road up the hill behind Monkey Republic.
