Practical guide to go and visit Koh Sukorn

The small island of Koh Sukorn is one of the least known among Trang islands but I must say that this is perhaps the one I like the most. With very few tourists, it has a real local life, rural and agricultural. Here the population does not live from tourism but from the culture of rubber, watermelons (they are delicious), rice or fishing. Foreign tourists are not numerous, they prefer the white sand beaches of Koh Ngai or Koh Kradan, other Trang islands with a lot more tourists. It is true that in Koh Sukhorn, the beaches are less postcards beaches but Koh Sukorn has more to offer than beaches !

Personally, I fell in love with its scenery which reminds of a small Isan (the most rural part of Thailand) concentrated on island. By strolling around by bike or scooter, you cross rubberwood forests, rice fields, watermelons plants, you meet buffalos, inhabitants who walk with their goats ... and of course beaches. If you are looking for a Thai island preserved from mass tourism, you will probably love Koh Sukorn !

Accommodations in Koh Sukorn

There is only a few resorts in Koh Sukorn which are located on Ao Lo Yai, the most beautiful beach on the West Coast of the island. There are no luxury hotels or backpackers chaep bungalows, just modest mid-range accommodations where the price for a night price is between 700 and 1500 THB including breakfast. The big booking websites like, Agoda and others only list very few, when I got there I have spotted other accommodations that I added to my list with the phone numbers when I have them. But I advise you to book your accommodation in Koh Sukorn through a travel agency in Trang.

Practical information about Koh Sukorn

There is no ATM in Koh Sukorn, so come with enough cash to cover your expenses. There are no 7 Eleven or other Family Mart either but a few small grocery stores and the Riskee minimart on the main road Baan Samai village less than 1 km from the pier. There are no cars on Koh Sukorn, only two wheels sometimes transformed to carry more things or passengers. It is not a touristy island. In high season, all the resort are not open all the time so I think in low season (May to November), all resort may be closed.

How to go to Koh Sukorn ?

Boats to Koh Sukorn depart from Baan Ta-Seh pier about forty kilometers from Trang. The most convenient way to come is to come from Trang. All local agencies and most hotels and guesthouses offer an all inclusive ticket with local bus + boat to the island + motorcycle to your resort. You will find many agencies and hotels near Trang Railway Station. The total journey takes about 2h30. I would like to point out that the local bus is a songthaew (a pick-up truck with benches in the back) where you will travel with the locals, so if you need mort comfort, you may better opt for private transport (much more expensive). Knowing that the boat to Sukorn island will be a longtail boat anyway.

How to get around in Koh Sukorn ?

To get around Koh Sukorn, you can choose between renting a bicycle or a scooter. All the resorts onthe island rent them for the day. As the island is pretty flat, you can opt for cycling without fearing of having to make too much effort. Alternatively, you can rent a motorcycle taxi for a specific race or for the day (ask your resort).

Weather & climate in Koh Sukorn

Koh Sukorn a tropical climate. Temperatures don't vary a lot throughout the year although the pre-monsoon months from February to April are a little hotter. The year is divided into a dry season, from January to March and a long wet season from April to December, with the strongest rains in September.

The best time to come to Koh Sukorn is from December to March knowing that during the low season from May to the end of October, when it rains the most, tourism activity is very limited and most of the resorts on Koh Sukorn and other Trang islands are closed.
