Nang Yuan Island

A serene trio of tiny isles off Thailand's southeastern coast, connected by a sandy isthmus and renowned for snorkeling and diving spots.

Tips from the community

It’s undeniable that the Gulf of Thailand is stunning. Dotted with wonderful islands like Koh Tao and Koh Samui, its beaches are postcard perfect in every way possible. But most tourists don’t make it to Koh Nangyuan, which is as close to heaven as you can get. It is privately owned with no roads. The tiny island is home to exactly one resort, meaning at times, the island will feel like it’s all yours. Day trippers will be coming over to snorkel the pristine waters, but early mornings and evenings will be your own paradise. This will be some of the best snorkeling or diving you’ll do in the tropical paradise of Thailand. Especially cool note: the island is environmentally friendly and strictly upholds a ban on single-use plastic water bottles.
