Koh Samet, off the coast of Rayong, is a tiny island with green hills and cliffs rising from its centre and pockets of sparkling white sandy beaches shining in the sun.
By comparison to the somewhat notorious party-beach town of Pattaya, the island of Koh Samui, the full-moon parties of Koh Phangan or internationally famous Phuket island, Koh Samet can be considered somewhat of a well-kept secret, to all but a select few.
If you are fortunate enough to have discovered this emerald isle, find your own spot of heaven on the sand, lie down, and relax.
You'll soon find that the tide will carry your cares away. The worries of the world can wait another day.
Look out for the gorgeous sunsets. This picture was taken at about 6.30 pm. Not among the best sunsets that I have ever seen, but not too bad, considering it was the rainy season and had rained just an hour earlier.
- Pros:Beautiful, crystal clear waters, warm enough to swim in year round
- Cons:Some of the coral has been destroyed and damaged
- In a nutshell:A well-kept secret, just yours and mine!
