Mu Koh Ang Thong National Marine Park

An emerald saltwater lake known as Tha-le Nai (Inland Sea) on Ko Mae is the park’s major scenic attraction, and entails a mildly strenuous climb. The resultant views are well worth the effort.

Another popular venue is Ko Sam Sao where an extensive span of coral reef and a huge rock arch offer scenic fascination. The park office is on Ko Wua Ta Lap where bungalow slyle accommodation is available. Visitors wishing to slay overnight should make advance bookings and specify whether meal services are required.
