Ko Bulon Le Things to Do

  • Rock paintings

    We found nice small rocks around the resort, they are smooth, white and have flat bottom. If you come with children, bring along paint and brush.

  • Snorkelling (2)

    The coral around Ko Bulon Le is abundant and lively. Take care while snorkelling not to scratch your chest on the reef, as in some locations the coral is at a depth of less than one meter and if the sea is a bit rough it could be dangerous.

  • Snorkelling (1)

    It's possible to do some very good snorkelling in Ko Bulon Le, just a few meters from the beach.Though the sea was a bit rough, the water was very clear and snorkelling very enjoyable.It's a pity that the cheap underwater disposable cameras make such poor quality pics.

  • The sea

    The warm Andaman sea has incredible turquoise and blue colours around Ko Bulon Le.I've been here twice (once in April and once in January) and the sea was quite rough both times. I think that steady winds are quite common around here and the island becomes off limits during the monsoon seasons.

  • The main beach (2)

    The long sandy beach on the eastern coast of the island is ideal for a nice walk on the shore. Most of the beach is backed by shady Casuarina trees, that offer a cool retreat from the peak midday heat.

  • The main beach (1)

    The main beach of Ko Bulon Leh is located on the eastern side of the island, where most resorts are located and where the boat will drop you on arrival.It is a long sandy beach and there are somewhere just a few rocks. In some locations the coral reef starts very close to the shore: you could walk on it (with proper shoes) but don't do it as the...

Ko Bulon Le Transportation

    The boat to/from Pak Bara

    by dabuwan Updated Apr 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Normally there is just one small boat daily to/from Pak Bara, a small village in Satun province, that takes about one hour.
    When I visited, the boat was leaving Ko Bulon Le early in the morning (around 8 a.m.) and was leaving Pak Bara early in the afternoon (around 2 p.m.). The timetable is somehow "flexible" and there is no transportation if the sea is too rough.

    Thai tourists swimming

    While most Thai tourists don't like so much to sunbath, they do like swimming.
    Anyway most of them, especially girls, go into the sea with their clothes on.

Ko Bulon Le Warnings and Dangers

    A storm approaching the island

    by dabuwan Updated Apr 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Andaman sea gets pretty rough during the monsoon season, approximately from July to November. It is thus difficult to reach Ko Bulon Le (and other islands in the Andaman sea, like Ko Tarutao) in that period, when most accomodations also shut down.
    Anyway, throughout the whole year tropical storms are not uncommon; I was there twice, in April and in January, and once I had to wait for three days for a boat to arrive as sea transportation was impossible due to severe weather conditions.

    There are many small uninhabited islands around Ko Bulon Le. The nearest one is Ko Bulon Rang, but arriving from Pak Bara by boat you'll see many others.You need to charter a boat for the day if you want to reach some of them for excellent snorkelling in a pristine environment.

    Mango bay (so the locals call it) is a small bay on the southern coast, that can be easily reached by foot in about 1 hour walk from the resorts area.The sandy beach has many rocks, that make it not so good for swimming, but ideal for snorkelling.

  • Blue, white, green

    Ko Bulon Le is a paradise island in the Andaman sea: blue sky and sea, white sand, green lush trees. Amazing colours that change their depth and tonality during the day and depending on the weather.
