Koh Pak Bia is another small island of the idyllic Koh Hong archipelago that is working hard to ensure the area retains such a dream. Located between Koh Yao Noi and the Krabi coast, Koh Pak Bia is a top-rated destination for day trips or tourists looking for a quiet and paradisiacal place to relax and snorkel. Even though tourists will troop in from these areas to see what the small island is about, Koh Pak Bia has been able to stay true to its unspoiled nature while offering the exotic experience to those who seek to visit.
An approach to Koh Pak Bia is punctuated with a breathtaking sighting of the island’s unique shape. It enjoys this from the sister island, which has been shaped to look like a hall, and Koh Pak Bia serves as a befitting room in this hall. With its dome-shaped structure, the beauty of the island strikes harder with the presence of foliage and the linkage to a small rocky crop. The sandy beach which connects Koh Pak Bia with an offshore island is spectacular. The sand here is not like anywhere in the vicinity too. That can be chalked down to its unique location, allowing it to enjoy the small, yellowish, and slightly coarse features that it brings to the table. We would not advise that you go running barefoot on Koh Pak Bia, but you can have some fun on the sands near the waters anyways.
The location of Koh Pak Bia towards the southern part of Phang Nga Bay makes the waters around the island more emerald than turquoise. The bay with the rocks always whispers visitors to snorkel. The sea is shallow, which is only two or three-meters depth on average. Untouched and undisturbed, the island’s underwater scene has one of the most extensive coral reefs in the region, and that supports life to hundreds of fishes. Snorkelers and divers are soon to get in touch with some colorfully unusual fish species to make the whole experience worthwhile. The shallow waters in Koh Pak Bia also make the island an ideal place for swimmers.
While anyone would love to stay on Koh Pak Bia for the night and maybe watch the sun go down too, the island does not take overnight visitors. This is why we also recommend booking an early enough tour so that you make the most of this picturesque location. It is also a good idea to visit the island after Koh Hong since it is only about 4 km north. On the boat trip back, soak in all the warmth and naturality of the environment one last time again. Because, if there is one small island with a big heart, it would be Koh Pak Bia.
