This is the most beautiful island of the Trang Sea, located to the west of Ko Muk and Ko Libong. It has more than 600 rai (approximately 240 acres) of land. The sand on the beaches is fine and white, and the water is clear enough to see the strips of sand beneath the water’s surface. At the northern part of the beach, tourists can see coral reefs stretching out into the sea for over 100 rai (approximately 40 acres) where you can see colourful fish swimming in the crystal clear water. This is a very attractive place which is unlike any other island. Ko Kradan has some of the most beautiful beaches of the Trang Sea. This is why this island was chosen to hold the Trang Underwater Wedding. At the northern part of the beach, tourists can see coral reefs stretching out into the sea for over 100 rai (approximately 40 acres); such as, brain corals, staghorn corals, red soft corals and many types of fish. You can also see colourful fish swimming in the crystal clear water. The beach is also a perfect place for watchingthe sunrise since you would be able to see Ko Muk, Ko Waen, Ko Chueak, Ko Ma, all in a row all the way to Ko Hai.
From this beach, there are paths leading to the other beaches of the island; such as, Ao Chong Lom located at the west of the island. It might not be as beautiful as the other beaches, but it is a perfect place for watching the sunset with Ko Rok in the view. This beach is small with fine, white sand like the others but there are brown rocks scattered all over, a strange view indeed. Other than that, there is Ao Niang to the south of the island. The beach has white sand stretching for about 800 m long, and in front of the beach is a coral reef which makes it another point of snorkelling and diving at Ko Kradan.
