Be part of a unique expedition to a remote island in the bay of Chumphon, one of the most preserved beach provinces in South Thailand.
At 13:00 at the Lobby of The Beach Resort & Residence, meet with your guide who will accompany you to Kye Island for an amazing camping experience. He will first give you a basic briefing on safety and dos & don’ts on this fragile island and bring you to the fisherman village, then you will receive a complete camping equipment package including a tent, sleeping bags, pillow, front head lamps and some beach games.
At the fisherman village, you will get your last chance to purchase snacks and drinks to bring with you to the island. Follow your guide to a local fishermen's community and hop on a traditional longtail boat for a 30-minute cruise to Koh Kye.
Koh Kye has a unique feature which is different from other islands. It is actually a “coral graveyard”, which takes the form of a white sand dune and is as white as an egg! A large amount of dead corals has been gathering on this dune island since Typhoon Gay attacked Chumphon in 1989. As time passes, rainwater changes the color of the dead corals to white, creating the natural beauty of this unique island.
Koh Kye is a sanctuary of peace surrounded with coral reefs and home to a thick jungle. This is where we will set-up our camp for the night. Don’t worry, there are plenty of activities waiting for you, including snorkeling in the coral reef among hundreds of colorful fish, or participating in a fun beach volleyball tournament while the sun sets in the background.
Just after sunset, join the rest of the group for a delicious BBQ prepared with freshly caught seafood and vegetables grown by the farming community of Chumphon. Enjoy the rest of the evening in good company under the stars while listening to campfire stories. By night, fishermen often make a stop on the island and invite campers to join them fishing squid. A unique experience!
