Having an island with long golden beaches almost all to yourself is a rare thing in a country like Thailand. But it is possible. One example is Koh Kho Khao north of Khao Lak in Phang Nga Province being peaceful all year and almost abandoned after the end of the high season.
April is the end of the high season meaning higher temperatures but not being the rainy season quite yet. While some restaurants and hotels shut down, some remain open with very few guests.
The island, which was totally wiped out by the 2004 tsunami has literally no shopping or entertainment, and there is not much to see more than grazing buffalo and some mangroves. But if you’re looking for a deserted beach destination, peace, and tranquility — this is the best thing ever!
