  The water and the sand...
by yen_2

The most popular pier in Samet Island or it's where usually the boat will drop off the visitors is in <B>"Na Dan"</B> which envolves into a small village which is the Koh Samet Village but mind you there were lot's of 7-Eleven stores to the area. Quite a little island that the roads are very bad! Well, it's the closest point from Ban Phe, Rayong Province. Though, there are also other available piers in the island such as the Vongdern and the Ao Prao Beach Resort.

In Na Dan, as said earlier in my tips that are several pick-up trucks that are ready fro transporting visitors to the diffrent beaches around. The cost varies the distance but when we got there as we arrived around 7pm.Not much of visitors so, we paid 200baht/ride. It was alot but can't complain as it was getting dark and the road is as bad as it gets! Iwonder why didn't work that one...

Anyhow, the closest beach from "Na Dan" is the Saikaew Beach Resort which about 10 minutes ride to the rocky road. There are quite alot of beautiful beaches around the island...It depends on your budget and of course the availability of the place. When we went we didn't prepare of bookings so, we stayed in a small though a bit okey guest house!
