This island destination is included in the Poda Group of Islands which consists of three more islands, namely, the Ko Kai, Ko Thap and the Ko Mo island. In the local language, the Poda Group of Islands is known as Mu Ko Poda. The island has a small area and comes under the Haad Noppharat Thara Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park. One side of Ko Poda is often bustling with activities while the other is serene and less crowded. The buzzing side is the side where tourists enter the island. This side has a restaurant with a bar, the officer’s camp and a small hotel while the other side has nothing but nature. There is a small entry fee and visitors also need to follow certain island rules to keep it island clean.
Ko Poda is mostly famous for patches of greenery along with white sand beaches and pristine azure waters. The shores have shallow waters that support a good expanse of coral reef and create an environment perfect for colourful exotic fishes to thrive in. One can also get to see some stunning Limestone formations cropping out of the ocean near the shores. The beaches are less commercialized, so there are very few restaurants or eateries available. The less crowded side of the island, in particular, has no provision for food and water. Therefore, travellers need to carry snacks, potable water along with other essentials.
