I’ve always dreamt of being in a place that looks like a wallpaper for the monitor, with palm trees leaning over the sea, blue sky, turquoise waters. I think Koh Wai Island in Thailand is almost close to perfection. What do you think?
Koh Wai Island
The Island was not crowded (compared to the European Beaches) and the tourists vacationing on the island were mostly (if not only) Russians. There are wooden bungalows directly on the beach, in between the palm trees, very basic, built on high wooden pillars in the air, with holes between the wooden walls, no insect nets and with shared toilets and showers.
We came here as a one day trip from Koh Chang island (a bigger sister of Koh Wai).
Things to do on Koh Wai Island
Koh Wai Island it’s a great spot for snorkeling.
Roast in the sun, enjoy the quiet atmosphere and the relaxing views over the clear blue sea.
Have a fruit cocktail or eat spicy Thai food at one of the two restaurants on Koh Wai (the one on the main beach lends books).
Walk along the main beach and find a path which will take you further to a small, quiet and private beach.
Enjoy the sound of nature!
I couldn’t help but wonder, if I were alone on an empty island, would I make it to survive? There are bananas and coconuts growing on trees, so maybe I wouldn’t starve…but it’s quite scary to be alone in the middle of the nature, even in a gorgeous place like this :).
