Easy to reach, but only by bus, no train.
Reasonable accommodation, some really nice.
Not too much of a party scene.
Some nice upscale restaurants for occasions.
Cons: 3 hours in the bus.

17: Ko Kham
This place has a genuine white sand beach and probably the best coral close to Mak.Más sobre Ko Kham
Ko Kham has a nice little beach club area - blinding white sand, very clear water, okay snorkelling, showers etc. Costs 100baht but my entry ticket from Cococape resort also entitled me to a free soft drink or water.
Cococape charges 100 extra for two way transfer - you specify the times.
18: Koh Rayang Nok (inc restaurant)
Ko Rayang Nok is a similar distance (to Kham) to the south-west of Mak. The closest I've been is on the passing speedboat to Ko Kut, but the beach sure looks nice, similar to Kham's and like Kham you can day-visit for a small charge. There is also a resort there - looks to be flashpacker/lower midrange in standard from the website.

19: Pano Bungalow
About midway along the western side of the peninsula is Pano Bungalow with a hell of a lot of nice looking bungalows built along the hilly side of the peninsula. These would have fabulous views up the island towards Ao Kao beach and killer sunsets. The joint looked lower-midrange to me, but KOH MAK com suggests pricing is more flashpacker. The place seemed largely deserted of tourists when I went past.Más sobre Pano Bungalow

Very nice position at the better eastern end of Ao Kao beach - the only other joint around was Lazy Dayz next door where I spent considerable time because its nice food was mabye 20% cheaper than Ao Khao's excellent stuff.
