The rainy season in Koh Mak is usually between July and October. It is warm and the weather remains fair, the only difference being a heavier amount of rain. Though there are storms, the day after most of them consists of blue skies and sunshine were taking a dip in the ocean can become more fun and refreshing. With Koh Mak being surrounded by Koh Kood and Koh Change, it is protected from large weather catastrophes, for example, typhoons, or massive thunderstorms, keeping residents safe as they walk along the island or relax by the poolside.
If that isn’t enough, the months from July to October are cheaper, as it is during the low season, so guests are able to experience the island at a lower price. Hotels can be booked at lower prices, which singles use to their advantage. From July to October, the beaches are more secluded and emit an ambiance calm enough for you to settle down and read or casually stroll around the small, peaceful and wonderful Island.

Motorbike and bike rentals are still available for those wishing to explore the island and quiet beaches.
