Family friendly beach with a wide range of shops and restaurants. A cluster of 4-star resorts plus plenty of beachfront bungalow accommodation.
The far north is probably he best beach on the island. The central area is the busiest. Expect crowds in High Season.
Mid-price bungalow resorts lining a long beach that rarely gets busy. Variety of touristy shops and restaurants on the roadside close by.
You'll find cheaper accommodation at this end of the beach. And all manner of shops, bars and Western restaurants.
The best location if you want a cheap hut or luxury resort on a long beach. You'll find plenty of great Thai food in the village near the south end of the beach.
Koh Chang's party place. A great beach and all the nightlife you need. Was a backpacker haven but now moving more upmarket.
A bit of a tourist trap. But you'll love the views from the pier and also across the bay from the nearby peninsula.
A couple of the island's best small resorts, the chance to see the local way of life, no traffic and a world away from the busy west coast.
Popular with day trippers. Check out the ever growing, bohemian scene on the island's southernmost beach.
An overlooked area near the ferry pier. But there's a fishing community and the valley is well worth exploring.
Visit for glimpse of a traditional fishing community. Follow a walkway or rent a canoe and paddle through the mangrove forest.
