Koh Kood, which is also often spelled as Koh Kut , is a great island to visit and probably the best in Thailand for lovers of beaches, jungles and waterfalls. Plus the roads are almost deserted, making it an ideal island for exploring by scooter. As with Koh Mak there isn’t a vehicle ferry to the island. So, along with the stunning scenery and crystal clear water, expect it to be quiet, even during High Season.
It’s appearance is that of a smaller, less developed Koh Chang. With jungle clad mountains inland and beaches dotted along the west coast. Koh Kood is far too large for you to be able to walk from beach to beach easily. It’s around 25 Kms long and 12 Kms wide, making it the fifth largest island in Thailand.
But despite the size, there isn’t much in the way of public transport. Many resorts are located down dirt tracks, well off the main road, in the middle of nowhere. So if you leave your resort and walk as far as the road, you’ll find there are very few shops, bars or restaurants anywhere. You won’t find any 7-eleven mini-marts, beer bars, tailors shops or other trappings of mass tourism here.
