In the country’s easternmost province of Trat, the Mu Koh Chang Marine National Park comprises 52 islands scattered along the coastline close to the Cambodian border.
The islands' amenities mainly focus around the perimeter, particularly the larger beaches which are all easily accessed by road. Getting around the island is simple as there are plenty of pickup trucks and taxis, as well as minibuses travelling to and from Trat airport. There are also tourist amenities and accommodation on the island of Koh Mak.
Koh Chang Dive Sites
Diving around Koh Chang
The diving here still has an exciting exploratory feel to it and, as they’re spread over a large area, the sites are uncrowded. Mu Koh Chang Marine National Park has a large selection of healthy fringing reefs, pinnacles and walls, as well as several very enjoyable snorkelling sites.
In general, visibility averages around 10m, although it can be in excess of 20m, especially at the sites further south. Marine life is also more prolific in these areas. There are plenty of colourful reef-dwellers, from minute invertebrates up to giant clams. The waters also attract many large pelagics, rays and – quite regularly – whale sharks.
