Hat Yai is the nearest town (other than Langkawi, Malaysia) with an airport and train station. There are many hotels, markets and restaurants. If you would rather not stay the night in Hat Yai, you should plan your arrival into Hat Yai as early in the morning as possible in order to catch a Taxi or mini-bus to Pak Barra. Travel time is around 2 hours. You can hire a private taxi for about 2000 THB.

Pakbara has a few guesthouses if you would like to stay the night, as well as a lovely, long stretch of beach with restaurants and cozy bars.

The boats depart for Koh Lipe and Tarutao between 10am and 2pm. Stop by our office to purchase a speedboat or ferry ticket to Koh Lipe or to other islands in the Tarutao National Park. Boat trips take between 45min. and 1 hour to reach Lipe. There is no pier on the island so you will be met by Longtail and taken to the beach of your choice.
