The island is small. Along the western beach you have some resorts and B&B's. That's it. On the rest of the island there are some rural villages with rubber trees around. Really relaxing!

Historical story is on this islands, just taking the long tails boat 10-15 minutes then you get on Koh Kho Khao Island. The local people is very friendly.

We took a motorbike over to the island on a long tail boat, that was the best part of the trip. I had to laugh at the sign that says something like "Welcome to beautiful Koh Kho Khao" there is absolutely nothing beautiful about this island it is run down and dirty and in some parts absolutely deserted. We rode... More

Go to this island for one day or more. We went her for a day on the beach and it was wonderful. Not so much people, lovely beach and restaurant. You will miss something if you dont go here. It's only 40 min from the central of Khao Lak to reach this wonderful island and beaches.

We stayed in Khao Lak and went to the island with a rented scooter. No crowds, friendly people, amazing beaches. We spent half a day at Hoopla Beach - lovely place with plenty of shade, good food and a sweet little library. A very relaxing day.
