Itinerary

Day 1: Off to a remote island

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 and an off-the-beaten-track destination that avoids the hordes of tourists found in the more popular Thai provinces.   

Meet your guide at 13:00 at the Beach Resort & Residence, who will accompany you to Koh Kye Island for your amazing island camping experience. Your guide will give you a basic briefing on safety and the dos & don’ts of this pristine island and bring you to a fishermen’s village, from where you will receive your complete camping equipment package including a tent, sleeping bags, pillow, head lamps and some beach games.

At the fishermen’s village, you will get your last chance to purchase snacks and drinks to bring with you to the island. Then follow your guide through the local 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 many 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 hit 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 peaceful sanctuary surrounded by coral reefs and home to a dense jungle. This is where we will set-up our camp for the night. Don’t worry, there are plenty of activities that await you, including snorkeling in the coral reef among hundreds of colorful fish, and 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 Chumphon’s farming community. Enjoy the rest of the evening in good company under the stars while listening to campfire stories. 

Meal: Dinner 
Accommodation: 1 night in Koh Kye Camping Tent (2 travelers per tent)
Transportation: Chumphon Mainland to Koh Kye by Fisherman's longtail boat


Day 2: Enjoy the pristine island

Wake up any time you want and enjoy a delicious morning breakfast.

Today you are free to enjoy all the activities like snorkeling, beach volleyball or just let your spirit wander and read a good book in a hammock. Lunch will be served around noon. Depending on the season, you can take a hike on the island’s dense jungle with one of the guides where you can discover a breathtaking cave in the middle of the island. 

The dinner will again be a tasty BBQ of fresh seafood and vegetables. Fishermen often make an unannounced stop on the island and invite campers to join them in some night-time fishing squid on their boat. A unique experience if you’re lucky...

You will receive a bag to collect plastic waste that you may find around the camp. We make sure not to leave any trace of our passage so please do your utmost to help keep this island the way you found it!

Meal: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 
Accommodation: 1 night in Koh Kye Camping Tent (2 travelers per tent)


Day 3: Back to the mainland

Time to wake, it's 7:30! Join the rest of the group for a tasty breakfast and then embark on our fisherman's longtail boat and head back to the mainland. On arrival at the village, enjoy a refreshing shower and then head to your next destination. Please let us know in advance if you’d like assistance for your onward travel.
