Camping in the wild in Thailand is not legal in some national parks. Camping on beaches in Phang Nga Bay requires permission, which we can get. However, neither Koh Yao Noi or Koh Yao Yai require any permission as they are not technically part of the national park system.
Our newest camping beach is on the west side of Koh Yao Yai. This means you can watch the sunset, but not the sunrise. You can’t have both.
The beach has a fishermen’s shack and several fishing net hammocks as well as a table area for preparing food. Firewood is abundant, though we usually bring a big bag from home.
This camping trip is also a coastal survival course. You’ll learn how to use a fire striker to start a campfire. There are a few wild edible plants in the immediate area, but islands tend to have fewer wild edible plants than mainland areas.
We don’t rough it. We have a cooler, awesome Thai food, tents, and other items to make you comfortable.
