Koh Kradan, off the coast of the southern province of Trang, has taken the top spot in the Top 100 Beaches on Earth 2023. The “beach rankings” have been compiled by UK website, World Beach Guide.

The island of Kradan is one of a number of islands that are part of the Hat Chao Mai National Park. Of all the islands, Koh Kradan has long been considered the most beautiful by many and remains largely untouched. Despite being only a few kilometres from the mainland, the island’s beautiful white sand beaches are a tranquil haven, including the main beach, Paradise Beach.

Government spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri has welcomed the news, adding that another 4 Thai beaches have also featured on the list of the world’s best. They are Railay Beach in Krabi province, which came in at number 9, Phuket’s Freedom Beach which ranked at 18, Koh Yao Yai’s Laem Beach in Phang Nga Bay, at 21, and Koh Tao’s Tanot Bay Beach in Surat Thani, at 44.

Thai PBS World reports that has Anucha also expressed his gratitude to everyone in the tourism sector, including businesses and the government, as well as the Thai people, for all their efforts in environmental protection and preservation of the country’s natural resources.
