Koh Ngai (Koh Hai)

Koh Ngai (also known as Koh Hai) is located 13 kilometers south of Koh Lanta, Thailand. It is one of the Koh Lanta group of islands that makes up the Koh Lanta National Marine Park. A small, triangular island less than 5 square kilometers in size, Koh Ngai has a forested interior and offers white sandy beaches along clear water with corals which encircles the entire island making it a perfect place for snorkeling. Koh Ngai is a secluded island and accessible only by boat.

Long-tail boat to take us to the island

Arriving at the island

Our huts

Rinsing our feet by scooping water with coconut shells

A swing with perfect views

I think this kayak paddle is a bit too large for Naimah.

Discoveries along the beach and in the water…

…including almost completely transparent jellyfish (that Gabriel was kind enough to collect for us).

Storm clouds rolling in

Looks like Gabriel is building a dam for the storm

Fresh grilled seafood BBQs

Writing in our journals…

…and researching the next location.
