Description of the Island
Koh Mak is an island predominantly flat, with internal hills 150 mts above sea level. These characteristic make the island easy to explore by walking or bicycle.
The island belongs to the archipelago of Koh Chang, the second largest island in Thailand after Phuket. The archipelago incorporates more than a hundred islands varying in shape and size. Many of these are uninhabited and include the Koh Chang National Marine Park.
The 360 inhabitants of Koh Mak are involved in fishing activities and also in the coconut and rubber plantations. Tourism had only just started.
With several kilometers of white sandy beaches and a crystal clear sea rich with marine life, a fantastic rain forest and tropical vegetation that cover the 90% of the island, Koh Mak can be considered one of the Last Paradise in Thailand.

The fortune of Koh Mak
Luckily the island has been saved from uncontrollable development because 300 years ago it was sold by the King Rama V to an aristocratic family that used Koh Mak only for coconut and rubber production. This has allowed Koh Mak to remain uncontaminated, retaining all its natural beauty.
Economic develop in Koh Mak: The economic development of the island started a few year ago with the construction of the first resorts and immediately gained favor with the new inhabitance, not only for his beauty, but also for the following reasons:
1) Proximity to Bangkok: Safe, double lane roads connect Bangkok to Trat making access to the connecting boat services to the island simple and easy. The trip, only 280 km traveling at an average speed of 100 km an hour, takes three and a half hours.
2) Trat Airport: The new airport of Trat, 40 minutes flight from Bangkok, is only 10 minutes away from the pier.
c) New Speed Boat: The new speed boat allow you to reach the island in only 45 minutes. The alternative is the romantic slow boat that take 3 hours and ambles through the marine wonderland.

Koh Mak - A controlled development : The families that owns 90% of the Island are resolute to support a controlled and gradual development, preserving the natural beauty of Koh Mak. An official regulation controls building design on the island (no more than 3 floor allowed). Go Go Bar, the use of the dangerous jetsky and other activities opposed to the ideology of the island are been enforced. These rules are designed to preserve the natural heritage of the island and to develop in the direction of the "Ecoturism" .
The idea is to create a small paradise where it is possible to visit or live with the entire family, enjoying a pleasant holiday in harmony with nature.
Government engineers had already developed a trekking and bicycle route that allow exploration of the entire island.
The absence of traffic (only the resorts and a few residents own cars ) and Jetsky, and the characteristics of the coast line, with its beautiful shallow beaches make Koh Mak an ideal place for people and families to enjoy their holidays in a relax and safe environment.
