Once upon a time, Lonely Beach was probably a quiet deserted beach on Koh Chang. These days, you won’t feel alone on Lonely Beach. Lonely Beach is THE backpacker beach on Koh Chang. If you are young or young at heart and like to drink buckets in beach bars with a Bob Marley flag then you will find many like-minded people over here. Lonely Beach is also known as one of the best places on Koh Chang to watch the sunset. A golden combo!

Although Lonely Beach is still popular with backpackers and there are still cheap bungalows to sleep in, more luxurious hotels have taken their place. Especially on the northern part of the beach. As a result, families, couples or flashpackers are also increasingly visiting Lonely Beach. Lonely Beach is not the most beautiful beach on Koh Chang, it’s the fun atmosphere that attract many kinds of travelers.

Music and fire shows

Unlike most other beaches on Koh Chang, Lonely Beach’s sea is deep enough for swimming even at low tide. The southern part of Lonely Beach is more rocky. Still, this isn’t a place you should skip because you can do some nice snorkeling here and there are some nice bars and restaurants. Monkey Restaurant has elevated platforms on top of the rocky shore. Also in the evening it is nice here with music and fire shows. The chances of ending up here are high anyway because this restaurant is on the public road that takes you to Lonely Beach. The other access roads are through the resorts.

Eat, drink and party!

In the southern part, on the main road and in a few cross streets of the area are shops and cheap eateries. One of these is the atmospheric and affordable Magic Garden Restaurant. Some hip and popular bars are the (restyled) Himmel Bar and Secret Room (also known as Ting Tong Bar). But there is actually always a party somewhere at Lonely Beach. Of course, there are also souvenir shops, travel agencies, massage shops and, strangely enough, quite a few tattoo shops. If you wake up with the name of your ex on your arm, you know you’ve had too much to drink.

Bungalows and Resorts Lonely Beach

Bungalows and resort can be find plenty on Lonely Beach. In the northern part of Lonely Beach, the beach is the most beautiful. Therefore, this is where most of the more expensive resort and bungalows on the beach are located. The southern part of Lonely Beach has rocks so swimming isn’t always possible, many bungalows and resorts compensate this with a pool, even the budget bungalows often have a pool at this part of the beach. It’s also possible to rent for a longer period of time, as it will not surprise you that people stay here longer than planned.

Here are a few tips for staying for a few days, weeks, months or …

Oasis Koh Chang

From basic to luxury rooms, it’s just what you’re looking for on Lonely Beach. The bungalows of Oasis have a balcony with hammock and are located somewhat higher and in the middle of the jungle. The monkeys swing by your bungalow every now and then! At the moment they are working hard on a swimming pool (August 2021). Oasis Koh Chang is a fifteen minute walk from the beach and close to the main street. Enjoy going out and come back to the tranquility of your own oasis! Keep in mind that you have to climb a steep hill (or rent a scooter). That climb you forget of course as soon as you arrive back in your own tranquil hide away. What you should definitely do when you sleep here is eat or drink in the high treehouse with phenomenal views over the area.
