Koh Kood (also known as Koh Kut) is the second largest island in the province of Trat, after Koh Chang, and is located very close to the border with Cambodia. The island covers 65 square miles and can best be described as a nature lover's destination. Compared to its more illustrious neighbour Koh Chang, Koh Kood is rather flat with the highest mountain on the island, Khao Phaenth, only about 300m high.
Inland the island is very wild with a lot of coconut and rubber tree plantations which provide many of the locals with a living. However tourism is slowly coming to the island as it has a number of good beaches with crystal clear water (Ta Pho Beach, Khlong Chao Beach, Thakian Beach, Phrao Beach etc.) and with the opening of the Soneva Kiri, the island even has its very own luxurious resort now.
The best time to visit Koh Kood is from November through to April. However even during monsoon season, a stay on Koh Kood is worth considering as it doesn't rain every day or all day long. Activities on Koh Kood are simple - lazing on the beach, snorkelling off the beautiful coral reefs or just watching the stars at night.
