Sai Khao North is the quiet end of the island's busiest beach
The North stretch of Sai Khao Beach has the luxury of space, for the road is well behind, and two large resorts and five small ones now occupy most of this tropical beach. The beach name White Sand is very appropriate, for the sand is indeed white and fine. The beach has very clear water that runs quite deep, giving excellent swimming conditions. But it is still narrow here, and at spring high tides (every 14 days, following the full moon and black moon) the whole beach will be submerged for a while.
This is the quiet, peaceful end of Sai Khao, the place for relaxation, massage in the shade of the coconut palms. Some beach resorts here also have an open-air, beachside restaurant for couples to enjoy picture-perfect sunsets over the ocean, evening drinks or a romantic dinner right on the sand.
The long line of red roofs protruding out over the far north end of the beach belongs to White Sand Beach Resort, which has a long, prime stretch of beach but too little environmental sense to hide their constructions among the trees. Unfortunately, not uncommon on Koh Chang.
The gem on this beach, and the most comfortable beachfront accommodation here, is the 4-star KC Grande Resort & Spa. This has the double luxuries of a beautiful coconut beach and lots of space, allowing this to build itself into open beach gardens. And giving space for two swimming pools, one a large winding affair with pool bar, plus a play area for children. The main hotel block is a 3-storey building overlooking tropical gardens, pools, beach and sunset view.
Their Bodyworks Spa offers full services, including Thai massage, massage therapy and various health & wellness body treatments. They will organize a romantic beach dinner on the sand.
