There is a small health-centre on the island where a nurse can take care of minor injuries – you can buy antibiotics and other common medicine. In Trat there is a branch of the Bangkok Hospital that is well equipped to deal more serious medical issues that may arise.
Koh Mak has a favourable climate that is usually dry from November to May, with the coolest and most pleasant weather during the popular Christmas period before getting increasingly hot. Rainy season is between June and October bringing humidity and typically short bursts of heavy rain.
Like most places in the tropics, there are some snakes, scorpions and spiders on the island but injury from them is unlikely. Most tourists will not even see any whilst on the island. Protect yourself against sandflies and apply coconut oil while walking on the beach. We recommend to carry vinegar with you and wearing bath suits with long sleeves as protection against jelly-fishes.
