Koh Ta Kiev is one of the most beautiful places to visit on earth, and part of what makes it so spectacular is that it is largely untouched for the most part. The land is not the home to wide ranging tourism and, in fact, has only been open to tourism since 2014. Getting to Koh Ta Kiev: Finding your way across the Gulf of Thailand to Koh Ta Kiev is actually quite easy. From Otres Beach, on the mainland, you can catch a ferry to the island. The cost is $13 round trip, and is an open ended ticket to return, meaning you can use the ticket at any point to come back to the mainland. There is also an alternative ferry service from Ream Beach that costs $5 per person. This takes only about 20 minutes to get you there, but can only hold three people and a limited amount of luggage. The hours are more flexible for trips. During the months from December to March the cost raises to $15. Accommodations on Koh Ta Kiev (BOOK AT END OF PAGE): The island has only been open to tourism for about two years now, meaning the infrastructure of the island is quite limited. In fact, most of the island is quite undeveloped, but bungalows are starting to see their way onto the island. Most who have come to Koh Ta Kiev have chosen to stay in tents or to sleep in hammocks. It is still quite common to see tourists select this option, even if there are more pleasant accommodations available. Currently there are only about 10 little bungalows to stay in, with each having a private bathroom and either a queen sized bed or twin beds available. The main electrical line from the mainland does not reach to Koh Ta Kiev, so all power is from solar energy and Wi-Fi or internet access is not available. This island is more for ruffing it, and that is what you will do if you come here. There are feasts offered each day and night that are much like luaus. This is where you will have the chance to eat, and the meals are absolutely magnificent. You can also have fish that you catch cooked to your liking. What to Do: There are a lot of fun things to do on Koh Ta Kiev. Since much of the island is not altered, it means that you can enjoy a lot of the natural beauty of it. Koh Ta Kiev is about 15 square miles, meaning that if you want to spend a few days sleeping outdoors and walking around you will find the island is the perfect location. In the water there is also a lot to do. Because there has been so little human interaction with the island, you can find a lot of the sea life and plants that are under the water are healthy and doing well. This makes scuba diving and snorkeling a great adventure for sure, because you will see many animals and plants that you will not find anywhere on earth. The coral is fantastic for sure. The fishing is also quite amazing, and you will enjoy that you can have some open water to yourself so you can be the one making the catch of the day.
Coral Beach KTK
The newest addition to the accommodation list, Coral Beach even has its own bay in a truly secluded spot, and you can get there through the bar area of Ten 103. Coral Beach is the right choice when you need complete privacy from the other bungalows nearby, but note that you will have to share bathrooms with the other guests (and shower with a bucket).
The bungalows themselves are private though, and those that are stilted have two floors and hammocks underneath. The view of the sea from the second floor (about two-and-a-half meters above the ground) is gorgeous. Finally, there is also a huge dorm room, thatched and set on two floors. It is rather comfortable, especially since fans and mosquito nets are provided.
Coral Beach also features a restaurant right on the beach. There is a wooden platform lifted above sea level. Also on the beach, there is a badminton net, and you can always doze off in one of the hammocks scattered around. And at night, all guests can charge their phones and other devices.
The foreign companies that have taken over the island have ambitious plans to build high-end boutique hotels, but there still is a long way to go until then. Whether this is a good or a bad idea is up to you to decide, but right now anyone visiting the island can go back to nature and enjoy untouched beaches and jungles to the fullest.
