Then of course there is The Boat Shack, a dreamy thatch roofed pavilion right on the beach in Buffalo Bay - the northern bay on the western side of the island. Its run by Tony, an expatriate Aussie, and Pen his wife of over 30 years. They've traveled widely together but settled on Ko Phayam 20 years ago. Now they run a small guest house plus The Boat Shack, from where they rent out paddle boards, small boats, wind surfers etc.
Tony and Pen welcome cruising sailors to the island, providing local knowledge, advice and logistical support with many of the things that cruisers need. I should add that Pen is a mean cook and her Thai food is delicious.
As long term cruisers, its the people we meet who make a difference in our lives - thanks Tony and Pen for treating us as old friends - you're special people.
