Overview

On Ko Kut you'll find beaches mostly along the western side, at Hat Tapho, Hat Khlong Chao and Hat Khlong Yai Ki. The water off some of these beaches is the most amazing shade of turquoise.

In recent years, Ko Kut has experienced a small flurry of development, including the construction of a high-end resort on the island's northwestern coast. Soneva Kiri, the new luxury property by Six Senses, has even built its own private airstrip for shuttling passengers between Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi and the island. Nonetheless, much of the island retains a sleepy, undiscovered feel.
