Baan Makam stretches north of Nathon both by the sea, as well as in the mountains. Usually, only those, as at a pearl chain lined up, small restaurants on the coast are known. The hillside part of the village is mainly inhabited by locals and offers no tourist attractions. For those who like to take a look at the life and the daily lives of the islanders, Baan Makam is, however, a good tip.
Simple huts, traditional Thai houses, and a few luxury villas are scattered between lush greenery. Agriculture is still the primary source of income and several smaller and larger roads for further up into the mountains and the center of the island.
