p style=”text-align: justify;”>Hat Kai Mook is a small beach between White Sand Beach and Chai Chet Beach. The beach itself runs for about 300 metres and is protected by a large rocky outcrop with peddles below the surface.
There is some good snorkelling for strong swimmers here with patches of coral and accompanying sea-life amongst the rocks to the south of the beach.
It is an atmospheric spot and very peaceful in comparison to the neighbouring beaches.
Kai Mook Beach Eating and Drinking
Lively nightlife isn’t really what this beach is about but there are a few hidden treats on the dining front. The restaurant at Saffron on the Sea offers some of the best food on the island. They have a small but inventive menu featuring home-made pastas and some interesting Thai-European fusion dishes. Their poached eggs with potato rosti is a fantastic breakfast option.
You can find excellent English and Thai food, including what is probably the island’s best pat gapow (hot basil stir-fry), at Sanae’s. They also make their own sausages if you’re missing the comforts of Western home-cooked cuisine.
Also up at the main road next to the post office coffee, snacks and free WiFi are available at the Booksthailand.com bookshop, as well as the island’s largest selection of second-hand books.

Tourist Services in Kai Mook Beach
Koh Chang’s main Post Office is located up on the main road at Hat Kai Mook. Apart from this, however, there is very little in the way of infrastructure. There are a couple of little roadside shopsselling basic items but if you need cash, or pretty much anything else then you will need to venture farther afield.
