Koh Kho Khao Homestay

Step back in time and experience eco-adventure with the Koh Kho Khao Community Tourism Group! Located just north of Khao Lak, the Kho Khao Island offers historic sites, homestays and eco tours activities like kayaking and bird watching in its beautiful nature. The long stretch of beach has been minimally touched by mass tourism and still offers a chance to experience the beach the local way by fishing and collecting a local vegetable. The villagers on the islands seek to protect their abundant natural resources and peaceful ambiance, and therefore developed a community based tourism group to achieve sustainable tourism development that is in harmony with the conservation of the environment.
