Away from tourist hoards, witness an outstanding stretch of sand for epic drone footage. Not like on Koh Samui, snorkeling around Koh Madsum is still sublime. The water is clear and calm, while the surrounding coral reef is vibrant. But what makes Koh Madsum truly unique – are its friendly residents – wild boars! Soak up in the sun and admire the breathtaking scenery of Koh Samui on the horizon, while the boars are roaming around freely – welcome to a Thai version of the Bahamas!

Koh Madsum is an incredible day trip.

With a white sandy beach and some lush interior, including mangrove forests, there are few eco-adventures to undertake in Koh Madsum as well. Kayaking along the shore, you may come across some rare birds and elusive monitor lizards. You can even reach Koh Tan, the second secluded island in the vicinity, offering even more remarkable snorkeling, trekking, and wildlife exploration.
