Koh Mak is a relatively small island covering an area of 16sqkm.
Activities include scuba diving and snorkeling – there are two dive shops on the island. You can enjoy a traditional Thai massage on the beach or at the Good Time Resort, visit the Koh Mak Museum and discover the history of the island, or learn Thai cooking with "Smile Cooking School". Boats are easily hired to take you to some of the many other unspoiled islands nearby. In the high season, there is a regular speedboat service to the neighbouring island of Koh Chang, the second biggest in Thailand.
It has far more tropical desert island feel to it than other islands nearby ( Koh Chang, Koh Kood) as no matter where you are you are never more than a few minutes from a palm fringed beach.
No wonder that the “Sunday Times” newspaper named Koh Mak as one of the its “World’s Top Secret Beaches in late 2006.
Away from the two main beaches on the northwest and northeast coasts, the scenery mainly compromises rubber and coconut plantations.
Most visitiors opt to see the island by foot, bicycle or on a rental motorbike – there are very few cars on the island as there are very few roads. The island has 24 hour electricity.
No matter where you stay -you are usally within walking or cycling distance of wherever you want to go.
The message is clear: You are here to relax and not be disturbed by the masses. Visit our romantic serene hillside restaurant and our small romantic pool. The Good Time Resort includes a little library with a communal office available along with free WIFI.
Guests have access to the romantic pool, the library, office-room and generous tropical garden.

Hello, my name is Yodying,
The island of Koh Mak is still very peaceful and has not been overwhelmed by tourists like other Thai islands. We wish to maintain this peace for our guests and give them a quiet and relaxing experience while still providing as many amenities as possible.
The guests that best enjoy Koh Mak and our properties are those that are looking for true tranquility. The beaches are beautiful and isolated, there are typically very few people on the island, and the beaches are always empty. There is plenty of time and peace to enjoy good food, do work if you wish at our open office space, and relax on the beach.
We look forward to welcoming you to Thailand and wish you a great time on Koh Mak. We are happy to assist you with your transportation to Koh Mak and to answer any other questions.
PS: We receive often questions like: "how will the weather be in August"... sorry- we really don't know. But what we know is that the past years we had many hours of sunshine - even in rainy season. And normally rainy season is not as bad as some imagine. From my experience, rainy season in Thailand is has more sun-shine days then summer in Berlin.
