Pearl Beach (Hat Kai Mook)
What is Pearl Beach Like?
Pearl Beach enjoys a great location since it is sandwiched between the two major tourist beaches at White Sands and Chai Chet. That means that it is located close to all the facilities and infrastructure of these places but far enough away so that you can experience a bit of peace and quiet.
The beach isn’t sandy – it consists of a stretch of rounded pebbles protected by rock outcrops at either end – but it is quiet and atmospheric and when the sea is calm there is some good snorkelling here with some corals and reef fishes – a rarity for a Koh Chang Beach.
There are just a handful of smaller bungalow resorts on the beachfront and they are all in the low to mid-range price range. Add to that a few little places beside the road and that is all the accommodation in this area.
There are a few little restaurants in the area that offer good meals at competitive prices and are hence popular with Koh Chang residents.
Amongst the facilities at Pearl Beach is Koh Chang’s main post office which is located here beside the main road. Next to this is Booksthailand.com, a second-hand bookshop that also serves coffee, drinks and meals (check the specials board).
There are also furniture and electronics shops as well as the offices of TOT and CAT, both phone and internet providers are also nearby.
