The Chalong Bay is protected on all sides by the waters.
This place makes one of the most popular anchoring shores of the island which lend shelter from the prevailing winds during the two major seasons that is the Southwest Monsoon (May to October) and the Northeast Season (November to April).
There are quite some restaurants on the Chalong Beach which give a full view of the beautiful fleet of boats.
There are small but cute little places on the beach that serve real Thai food, which is quite appreciated by the visitors.
The muddy shores of the beach though are unsuitable for swimming but are considered to be an absolute spot for Yatch Mooring.
The early mornings and the late afternoons are the busiest times on the Chalong Beach as it becomes the center of boating activities along the whole island.
The Ao Chalong Yacht Club, which organizes regular sailing races, makes its base here, and its bar is a favorite spot for sailors to swap stories.
The most popular feature is that there is also a one-stop customs, immigration and harbor master service to assist visiting vessels, as well as a new marine rescue centre.
Chalong's many informal restaurants, bars and cafes are worth exploring, particularly Kan Eang, notable for its fresh seafood and attentive service.
