Koh Lao Liang Hat Samran Trang Thailand
This small island has found a way to ensure it remains un-crowded – it limits the number of visitors it receives each day. Located in the Koh Petra Marine Park and accessible only by boat, it prides itself on having an eco-resort status. Said to be one of Thailand’s best-kept secrets, the island is a place of unspoiled natural beauty with dramatic limestone cliffs, beaches of pure white sand and reefs painted the colours of a rainbow. Keeping development to a minimum is taken very seriously here, so accommodation only comes in the form of upscale camping.
