Hat Khlong Kloi

Ko Chang

At the eastern end of Ao Bang Bao, Khlong Kloi is a pretty sandy beach that is away from the package tour scene and, though popular, still has a hidden-away feel. There are all the requisite amenities (beer, food, fruit, massage) and a few guesthouses. Truck taxis will drop you off here, or it's a 1km walk from Bang Bao.
