Ko Samae San is a small island with many sandy beaches providing excellent swimming opportunities and access to good snorkeling spots. You can bike around the island or trek through the lush forest, as well as visit a small natural history museum housing a whale skeleton. Because of the proximity of a Thai naval base, you need to book a tour through a local operator to visit this destination.

  • Secluded and peaceful island with clear blue water! Island is controlled by Thai navy and only ~500 people are allowed on the island per day so you have to get to the pier quite early in the day to secure a place on the shuttle boat to the island. The downside is the toilets on the island which could be improved. Oh and bikinis are not allowed on the island
  • It was really beautiful island. It was a place where a very safe and clean sea was maintained because it was under the control of the Thai Navy. Not so many tourists, it was a pleasant and relaxing trip. You can enjoy snorkeling on the island, and you can see countless fish in clear waters.
  • Beautiful & quiet island that nearest Bangkok. Recommend.
  • Beautiful, secluded island with not too many tourists. A good beach to relax, swim, and snorkel for a day trip from Bangkok. However, the transportation is very inconvenient to get here, so I had to hire a private taxi, which cost quite a bit. The cost of entering the island and the food and drinks that you can get in the island adds up. There were some garbage floating around the beach in the morning, but the current took them away in the afternoon. Public washroom was there, but I didn't think was being treated before being sent to the shore, so not sure if the good quality of the beach and water will last long. Recommended for those who are looking for a good day on the beach near Bangkok.
  • Well preserved island by Royal project, greenery and clear water
