Kai Bae beach

If you want to rest with family and children comfortably, but the White Sand seems to be too crowded, and Klong Prao is too quiet and far from the road with infrastructure, then Kai Bae beach is the choice for you, because it combines family hotels with proximity to civilization.

Beach description

Kai Bae is one of the first places, where locals in the mid-eighties opened their homes for adventurous Chinese and American tourists. Since then, this part of the island has developed a lot and has been built up with numerous shops and hotels, bars and restaurants. They say, that most of the land on the beach still belongs to one large family, that providently refused to sell it, when more and more vacationers began to arrive on the island.

Located in the very middle of the west coastline, Kai Bae is situated between the calm Klong Prao and the noisy and youthful Lonly, thereby absorbing the best of both beaches - the rich infrastructure and the relative calm, necessary for a family rest. South of a small bay, the highway bends, becoming much closer to the coastline.

During high tide, almost the entire coastline on the beach is hidden by water, there is absolutely no place to lie on the sand. However, if you get to low tide, in order to swim normally, you have to walk a couple of tens of meters into the sea - the coast here, like everywhere on the island of Koh Chang, is shallow.

When is the best time to go?

The period from November to March is considered the high season in Thailand. Comfortable air temperature, as well as minimal rainfall create optimal conditions for a beach holiday.

Luxury Gajapuri Resort & Spa offers luxurious bungalows, which are more like villas, almost by the sea. This is the most elite, 4-star hotel on the beach, wooden houses equipped with private pools and bathtubs with a jacuzzi. Dewa Koh Chang is located on the coast of a small picturesque lagoon, that flows into the sea, for swimming in which it is posible to rent a canoe. Two star Magic Resort Koh Chang provides simple bungalows, not at all luxurious, but equipped with everything necessary for living and a comfortable stay. 

At the southern top end of the beach there is a whole cluster of bars, in which it is possible to drop in on a hot afternoon between goes into the sea. They will delight you with low prices and cold cocktails. Vegetarians will also not stay hungry: at their service - a vegetarian snack-bar just a few tens of meters from the coast.

Useful information

At the northern top end of the beach there is the Koh Chang Medical Center - in case of an unpleasant surprise in the form of illness or injury, it is possible to contact here. The staff speaks English well (sometimes even Russian), so you will be provided with the necessary and urgent help.

Lovers of exotic entertainment can find the Meechai elephant camp on the opposite end of the beach - here it is possible to ride an elephant with an instructor. A couple of young elephants sometimes even go to the beach to splash in the sea water. You will have to pay for a individual photo with young elephants.
