Destinations: Koh Khao & Pak Bara

06.48 N 99.41 E

Just outside Pak Bara on the manland lie Kho Khao Yai & Koh Bulan. The space between the two islands is a safe and very attractive anchorage which is rarely visited. Both islands have numerous caves and creeks and offer good opportunities for exploring by kayak.

The channel between the two islands can be approached from the North with care. From the South there are no obstacles. Anchoring in the South end of the channel offers good holding and protection in all seasons.

Village of Pak Bara on the mainland

Pak Bara is a ramshackle small town at the mouth of a shallow river. Entrance of the river is marked by stakes. Main reason to go to Pak Bara is the easy availability of water and fuel. Limited provisions also available. Good road connections with Satun and Had Yai, so if you plan to take or drop off crew Pak Bara is a good place.
