The island is home to small local family-run eateries, a handful of minimarkets and a dusting of accommodation options. Koh Mak is for anyone seeking a tranquil escape, a slower pace of life and spectacular natural beautiful. You will find long deserted beaches, tropical hiking trails and well-preserved marine life in the nearby marine park.
