Connoisseurs of the Danube from Apatin to Djerdap enjoy the flow of this river, know its secrets and do not mind the fact that sometimes it is "blue" and sometimes "murky".
They equally love this river and often look for its hidden areas, where they can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, fishing, boating.
For them, but also for everyone who likes to explore and do a bit of "legwork" in order to enjoy themselves, the right place is the island near Sremski Karlovci, officially called Karlovacka Ada, but you will hear people calling it Koh Chang, Monkey Island, or Maldives.
What ties it to Thailand? Well, certainly the white, fine sand, on a wide coast.
And that's the first thing that will greet and delight you when you step off the boat. Because this is exactly how you reach the island - by taxi boats
that transport you from the shore below the chard near the famous Dunav Hotel, where you can also enjoy it before or after the ride.
The current price of transportation is RSD 250 per person in one direction. There are many boats, so you won't have to wait long to enjoy a ride that lasts a couple of minutes.

The freshness of the water and the wind blowing, beautiful landscapes, boats pass by and voila - you arrive at the hidden gem of the Danube coast. This is the place for those who don't like crowds and are looking for an actual river experience.
The water is cleaner than, for example, Lido in Zemun or Strand in Novi Sad. Warm, with a shallow and gradual transition to the deep. Wet sand is ideal for the unavoidable construction of sandcastles.
The beach is also suitable for landing with your own speedboats or boats.
Once you get tired of the sun, there is a wooded area, where the campsites are hidden, with tents, makeshift houses, barbecue area, swings.
There is also a bar
here, where you can drink coffee, beer, cocktails, and the specialty of Srem - spritzer. Parties are often organized here, and the evening music from the campsites confirms that fun is guaranteed.
If you are a fan of volleyball, there is a net where you can play, and in the direction from which you arrive by boat, further to the end of the island, there are several more sports fields.

It should be noted that Koh Chang belongs to the protected area of Koviljsko-Petrovaradinski Rit
, so in accordance with that there are norms of behavior. The cleanliness is taken care of by the young people who work at the bar and they really take their job seriously.
Important information: due to the newly built railway infrastructure, the turn for the hotel and the river is no longer the same.
Actually, only pedestrians can go here, and if you are going by car and arriving from the direction of Belgrade, you have to continue straight from that place and the old railway station, all the way to the sign showing you where to turn. From the direction of Novi Sad, one has to turn earlier than before, i.e. the road no longer leads through the center of Sremski Karlovci.
We highly recommend you explore this place, we are certain you will enjoy it. Have a great time!Aleksandra Kekic
