Transfer from Ban Phe, Rayong to Samed Island
There are many piers that operate boat service to Samed Island; Nualtip Pier (opposite to bus terminal), Phe Pier, Chokkrisada Pier, and Sri Ban Phe Pier. There are many types of public boats to choose from and it takes about 30 minutes per trip. The shuttle boat fare starts from 60Baht/trip/person, depending on the destination. We would recommend guests to get off the shuttle boat at Na Daan Pier (central pier on Samed Island) because it is the closest public pier to Samed Cliff Resort. Boats operate between 8 am – 6 pm and departs every hour. Right on Na Dan Pier on Samed Island, there are lots of taxi waiting (in the form of mini green truck) to take guests to resorts (rates varied by destination).
For a more convenience choice, guests can opt for private speed boat service that takes them directly to the resort (without taking public shuttle transfer). Rates are from 1,500B to 2,600 per trip (maximum 10 persons).
