About the place:

Ang Thong National Marine Park is a fascinating archipelago of 42 or so islands in the Central Gulf Coast of Southern Thailand. It is northwest of Ko Samui

Most of the islands are close to each other, making a breathtaking panorama when sailing around the park. All the islands are of different sizes and shapes. Most of them are covered with tropical forests and named after their distinguishing geography, a kind of descriptive appellation, such as 'Sleeping Cow Island' and 'Three Pillars Island'. Ko Wua Talap is the island that contains the park headquarters, Buaboke Cave, as well as the famous viewpoint from where you can see the panoramic view of the National Park.

Thalae Nai Lake is an emerald saltwater lake in the middle of an island is encircled on all sides by limestone cliffs, but linked by an underground tunnel to the sea. Reaching the lake entails a strenuous climb of 40 minutes or so, but is rewarded with a spectacular view across the whole park.

For less travel time, we recommend our speedboat tour which saves hours on the boat.  Click here for details
