Koh Kood in High Season/Peak Season (November to February)

The ‘farang’ or foreign season (when masses of foreign tourists flood the island) in Koh Kood comes during the months between November and February. Much like the other Thai beaches, these months are the best time of the year to visit Koh Kood. But with beautiful weather and so many tourists, you can expect to pay higher than usual rates to make bookings in the resort in Koh Kood.

Winter season in Koh Kood comes from December to February, which coincides with the peak season of the island. Especially in December and January, the nights are very chilly, more so at the hill bottom, and you don’t really need to book air-conditioned rooms at this time.

Koh Kood in Shoulder Season (March to May)

The shoulder season in Koh Kood falls in the months between March and May when the island is neither too busy nor too deserted. This time is also known to be the Thai season as while the flock of tourists vacates the island by this time, many families and groups from Bangkok come to the island to enjoy their summer vacations as this time marks to be the hottest time of the year in Thailand. Providing them with an escape from the scorching heat of Bangkok, Koh Kood offers them a place to chill during their vacation by engaging in water sports and enjoy their time in general by being surrounded by the beautiful beaches and waterfalls.

While Koh Kood has tropical monsoon with very little change in temperatures, the precipitation may vary each season considerably. The hot season in Koh Kood begins from March and ends around mid-May after which the island oversees the onset of the monsoon and experiences infrequent rain showers. With the transitioning of the season from February being relatively cold to the start of the summer season in March, this first month of the summer season is warm, and the heat is not that harsh that it should bother you so much during your visit. April, on the other hand, is the hottest month of the year and not the best month to visit the island if you do not like heat.

Koh Kood in Off-Season/ Wet season (June to Mid-October)

The months between June and mid-October marks the rainy season as well as off-season in Koh Kood; though in recent years light rain showers have been experienced by people in Koh Kood starting from May. Earlier, the entire island used to shut down between these months, but now, at least one of the ferry-boats runs during these months, so the island is open the entire year. Mostly, people come to this island for the weekend from Bangkok and other parts of Thailand for the weekend, and some actually find July and August to be a great time to visit the island as most of the beaches are empty at this time, and people are able to enjoy having the beach all to themselves.

The resorts also have some nature packages running in these months and some beaches like Bang Boa effectively protect its swimmers and people coming for kayaking on the beach from the harsh weather conditions. Thus, this time may be a good time for people who appreciate nature and crave privacy during their vacation to visit Koh Kood.
