There are no facilities available on the beach, leaving you nothing to do but sunbathe, swim and relax. However, there are a couple of resorts in the area, which provide shops, bars and restaurants.
Located in between Chicken Island and Koh Poda, Mor Island is a tiny rock jutting out of the sea. The centre of the island is dominated by a thick collection of tropical trees, with a soft sandy beach encircling it. Because of its small size, very few people go to this beach, making it ideal for those in search of a castaway type of experience.
Long tail boats travel between Ao Nang beach and Mor Island several times each day and the journey takes around 30 minutes. There are no sun loungers, parasols, bars or restaurants on the island, so make sure you take everything you'll need for the day with you.
