Klong Prao Beach is the longest beach on Koh Chang. It is crescent shaped and extends for around five kilometres. It is divided only where a couple of streams flow out via lagoons and these are all shallow enough to wade through.
There are several offshore islands that add to the attractiveness of the view and, as you would expect, the obligatory palm trees are all over the place. The group of hotels, restaurants and shops at the northern end of Klong Prao beach form an area known as Chai Chet.
History and art lovers will find plenty of inspiration in Denpasar’s fascinating museums or watching epic dance drama shows in one of its elegant cultural venues.
Restaurants & Bars
The main village of Klong Prao is blessed with a wide choice of eateries so lovers of Thai cuisine will be in there element, but the resorts also have international offerings too.
Klong Prao Guide – Koh Chang’s Longest Beach
The main road at Klong Prao is a lot farther from the beach, generally 300-400 metres, than elsewhere on the west coast of Koh Chang and the large expanse of flat land that lies between the beach and the mountains means that Klong Prao village is large and quite spread out. Since there is a lot of land that hasn’t been put to use yet Klong Prao feels quite open and spacious and, of course, this leaves lots of potential for future development.
Klong Prao village is clustered around Wat Klong Prao which is one of the island’s largest Buddhist temples. Namtok Klong Pluor Klong Plu Waterfall lies a couple of kilometres up a side road that is located about a kilometre north of Klong Prao village. Elephants are also a common sight around Klong Prao since no less than four of Koh Chang’s elephant trekking companies are based in the Klong Prao valley.
The beach is home to a number of Koh Chang’s four and five-star resorts but there are still a few budget accommodation establishments scattered amongst them.
