Ko Pu Island or Koh Jum is situated in between Krabi town and Ko Lanta and in the distance lays the famous island of Koh Phi Phi jutting up like sails on the Andaman Sea.

The northern part of the island is mountaineous and called Baan Koh Pu with its highest elevation reaching 400m ... the famous Koh Pu mountain.

The southern part is Koh Jam/Cham it is flat and has the better beaches. This part is called Ban Ko Jam or Jam village.

3000 people are settle on Ko Pu earning a living from fishing, rubber plantations, and tourism ... but the Jam population is spread in clusters of villages and no one place has more than a couple 100 souls. Please dress properly, when driving or walking through one of the local villages.

The easiest way to reach the island is by one of the daily ferries from Krabi to Koh Lanta.
