The East Cost of Koh Chang is the most unknown. Because all the development and the white sand beaches are on the west coast lots of people think that the east coast has no interest. It's true that there isn't a lot of businesses, shops, pubs and restaurants but there are few beautiful and small resorts where you can enjoy the silence and really relax but only 3 places which have been awarded this year.
Amber Sands is a beach resort with a calm safe sea and an amber coloured beach with no sand flies on the quieter east coast of Koh Chang, only 20 minutes away from White Sands Beach. It is owned and managed by a South African couple who have become well known for their friendly hospitality, personal service and attention to detail, not to mention their well-rated restaurant. They only have 8 bungalows so they have the time to sit and chat, or to give you advice on activities and some not-to-be-missed hidden secrets. Free Wi-Fi is available inside the resort.
Location: North of the island on the east coast, on Sae Daeng Beach (which means "Amber Sands" Beach)
