Koh Kradan is a nature lover’s dream island. Located in the Andaman Sea to the south of the mainland, this 4 km long paradise is surrounded by an untouched coral reef. Almost 90% of the land is protected for conservation, so visitors can benefit from a peek into an almost unsullied natural landscape. Koh Kradan is the most spectacular of all the islands in the Trang archipelago, and the long white powder beach on the east side of the island will be the ideal spot for an uninterrupted snooze. Kayaking around the entire island only takes three hours, and is the best way to enjoy the scenery. Where to stay: Reef Resort is a welcoming collection of bungalows right next to the beach. With easy access to the coral reef, it is unlikely that much time will be spent in the rooms, but the hotel facilities are friendly and charming.
