Long Beach (Haad Sai Yao)

This is one of the more secluded beaches on Koh Chang. It is set on the far south eastern end of the island and it is just over 400 meter (1300 foot) long. The road leading towards this narrow natural beach is very curvy and one of the islands best viewpoints is just north from the beach.

Continuing about half a km (1700 foot) south from Long Beach you reach the end of the island and you are only about 200 meters (650 foot) away from the small beautiful island Koh Ngam which rises 100 meters (325 foot) above the water.
