Swimming is easy and safe in high season. The light slope of the beaches on Koh Chang is ideal for children. Water is warm, clean and calm.
In Bailan, there are two little beaches inviting to swim. One is located at the north at Bailan Beach Resort near Orchid Resort, the other lies more to the south, a 50 meters from the Herbal Sauna and Bailan Inn.
Also, you can find a long beach at 2 km to the north and another very quiet one 5 km to the south (our recommendation). Both are easily reachable per Taxi or motorbike.
You will find swimming and beach equipement like swim suits, beach towels, inflatable toys, sun and insect protection, balls, frisbees, hammocks and more at the various shops on Koh Chang.
In green season, the sea may sometimes be dangerous because of rip tides. Red banners, flyers and the local people on the beaches will warn you.
As people drown every year, we urgently recommend to take this warnings for serious!
Snorkeling is very popular on Koh Chang, as The National Marine Park preserves the many coral reefs and their inhabitants. This leads to big fish populations and a great variety of species.
Every snorkeling tour includes free snorkel set, lunch, drinkink water and the transfer from and back to your hotel/resort.
The sea of the Koh Chang Archipelago offers a great number of excellent diving sites. The reefs are full of all sort of corals and fishes. From time to time, you can even spot Sea Turtles and Wale Sharks.
As some reefs are located at 5 to 10 meters, there are ideal for beginners. Other, deeper ones are reserved for experienced divers.
We only operate with full certified PADI Dive Centers.
