White Sand Beach
White Sand Beach is the most developed and touristic area of Koh Chang. In the high season it’s crowded. Despite this, White Sand Beach is still a very lovely place, the beach is wonderful and it still offers quiet spots to spend a week or two.

If you’re willing to stay in the White Sand Beach area with your family or your group of friends for your holidays (or if you’re planning a long stay in the area) a good quality resort can be quite more expensive than in the other areas of the island. That’s why it could be a good idea for you to have a look at the houses for rent we have in our listings : a house for rent is always much much cheaper than a resort, for an equivalent (when not better) quality. We propose monthly rentals rooms & houses in White Sand Beach from 5000 Bahts a month up to 15,000 bahts a month.
Business wise, we have some very interesting properties and businesses for sale in White Sand Beach, ready for work.

We will not describe the beaches, the secret spots and the touristic pros and cons of these areas, we will not list everything you will find there either (ok : the biggest Tesco Lotus of the island, Big C supermarket, a book shop, an electric shop, stunning sunset chilling bars, lady bars, one of the 3 best simple thai food restaurant of the island, luxury resorts, backpacker resorts, snorkeling hidden spots, the only one 50m long swimming pool, one of the best place for live music, luxury villas, etc.).

Ok, now let’s talk about real estate, as you’re probably not reading us for the touristic information.

Klong Prao is the largest area of Koh Chang with probably the most beautiful beach of the island, a ~4km long stretch of white sand with stunning views. Klong Prao is a true village, inhabited by thai & strangers mixed together, it doesn’t feel like a touristic area. Moreover, its central location is ideal, between White Sand & Chai Chet in the north, and Kai Bae and the southern parties in Lonely Beach — in Klong Prao you are never far from anything : Klong Prao has a clinic, pharmacies, groceries, hardware stores, a school, etc. you rarely need to go out of the village if you don’t want to.

Whether you are a low budget backpacker or traveling with your whole family, you will find the ideal establishment for your stay among us, without spending so much. Besides, almost all the activities are available in KP : the Klong Plu waterfall is beautiful and it’s a nice spot to spend a funny (and cooling) afternoon, elephant camps, massage, book shop, beach activities, snake farm, archery, etc. The nightlife is not left behind, KP has bars & karaokes, and even the only roof top bar of the island, with regular parties. Finally, from 40b to 600b, you can find all kind of good meals around here and it’s the only village where you can eat good food until late in the night.
Klong Prao has a lot of different atmospheres to offer : from the popular center, built around the most beautiful temple of Koh Chang and food shops where Thai people come to buy groceries before the night, to quiet seafood restaurants & guesthouses standing on the klongs, aside soi to jungle paths, beachfront romantic restaurants and a lot of secret to discover by yourself, KP is in our opinion the most pleasant place to live in Koh Chang.
