The only way to get around the island is by walking. The island has three kilometer long main beach. Most of the coastline is indented with rocky headlands, while the eastern part has beautiful sand beaches. There are several resorts lined up along the east coast. White sandy beach can be found in the middle and the south of the main beach. While in the north part, the beach is a rocky beach where CoCo COttage is located, but the fifty meters offshore coral reefs are definitely worth exploring.

Good time to visit Koh Ngai
Influenced by the global climate changing problem, there is nothing to guarantee for the weather on Koh Ngai. So you might consider about the transportation when planning to visit.
As same as most part of the Andaman Sea. The travel season is between October – April. To travel around Andaman coast route in this period is very easy with many public boats. Beside, most of National marine parks open to visit in this period. The island is livelier with resorts, restaurants, bars, massage places, tour and diving shops.
Out of Season
During May - September, visiting Koh Ngai during these months is still possible. Even there is no daily/public boats running. But a longtail boat from Pakmeng pier or the Old town pier (Koh Lanta) to Koh Ngai is easy to rent.
During this time, most of National marine parks are closed. Most of water activities are not allowed. But snorkeling in front of the beach yourself is still able to do. Massage places, tour & diving shops are mostly shut down.
Some resorts and restaurants are on and off in different month. So the island is a bit quiet. For anyone who is a thirst to peace, it’s your Time!

Welcome to CoCo Cottage
Chic Chill Charm
In the past, Koh Ngai was a coconut plantations owned by people from Koh Lanta. Influenced by this history and the atmosphere surrounded, we’ve named the place “COCO COTTAGE”.
CoCo Cottage had been built up on this beautiful island since 2004 when there was no electricity, no water supply. Our first idea was that we gonna create a small, safe and clean place on the virgin island. And what couldn’t be forgotten! If we want to enjoy the place for a long time, we need to look after it and the environment around.
To reaches the purpose – we’ve decided to built an eco-chic resort where rustic and design is combined. We believe that when people escape from the concrete forests of their everyday life and come to a remote island of Thailand. Nothing is better than a simply living in a small coconut trunk bungalow that gives a relaxed and chilled out feeling. And be surrounded by the charm of nature at the same time.
In the last decade, hotel and tourism industry in Thailand is growing up very fast. Luckily, Koh Ngai is still an unspoiled island. That might because 70% of the area is a forest that belongs to a national park. We don’t know the future. But we always challenge ourselves to keep balancing between Koh Ngai's environment and tourism development. Wish us luck!!
With our kindly staffs, you will be treated as good as we can.
CoCo Team is a team that always stays to take care of you with Thai hospitality. Even we are not the professional but we are willing and intending to do our best to make your holiday special and being one of the meaningful memories to you.
