Location : Bang Bao Bay, South West of Koh Chang
Bang Bao Pier Lighthouse Bang Bao is an old fishing village that has now largely been redeveloped for visitors to Koh Chang. It has spread out on a long pier that juts out into a large bay and which has now sprouted any number of side arms and sub-piers. There are lots of shops selling everything. There are also some excellent seafood restaurants here that come into their own as the sun sets over the bay. The pier is also home to several dive shops, a police station, a health centre and the convenient store. Many of the island’s boat tours depart from here as well as ferries to Koh Mak, Koh Wai and Koh Kood. If you walk all the way to the end of the pier you will find an ornamental lighthouse that offers some great views to those that climb it.
