Koh Mak is a relatively small island covering an area of 16sqkm.
It has far more tropical desert island feel to it than other islands nearby ( Koh Chang, Koh Kood) as no matter where you are you are never more than a few minutes from a palm fringed beach.
No wonder that the “Sunday Times” newspaper named Koh Mak as one of the its “World’s Top Secret Beaches in late 2006.
Away from the two main beaches on the northwest and northeast coasts, the scenery mainly compromises rubber and coconut plantations.
Most visitiors opt to see the island by foot, bicycle or on a rental motorbike – there are very few cars on the island as there are very few roads. The island has 24 hour electricity.
No matter where you stay -you are usally within walking or cycling distance of wherever you want to go.

Weather:
June-September
The south-west monsoon usually blows in from the Indian Ocean from June-September, but it can sometimes start early in May. The intensity and duration varies from year to year, but in Thailand it is the Andaman Coast (Phuket, Krabi etc.) that feels the effects the most. In simplistic terms, the heat of March-May brings about a significant difference between land and sea temperatures. This causes hot air to rise creating low pressure which in turn causes the monsoon wind to blow towards land. As the wind blows it attracts moisture from over the oceans which may fall as rainfall on the mainland. Coming in from a south-westerly direction, it is the Andaman Coast of Thailand which is hit the hardest. Downpours can be torrential and may be accompanied by gusty winds and high waves. Some boat services are temporarily suspended during May-October on the Andaman Coast, but it should be noted that it doesn’t rain all day, every day. There is still plenty of sunshine and temperatures remain high.
Although the period from June-September sees more rain on the Andaman Coast, the Gulf Coast (Ko Samui, Ko Pha Ngan etc.) and the East Coast (Pattaya, Ko Chang etc.) don’t escape completely, but there is still less rainfall here than the Andaman Coast.

Guest Access

Library, tropical park, small pool and restaurant a few hundred meters away.

Interaction with Guests

We receive often questions like: "how will the weather be next month or next August"... sorry- we really don't know. But what we know is that the past years we had many hours of sunshine - even in rainy season. And normally rainy season is not as bad as some imagine (but it could be).
