BEAUTIFUL BAYS & SECLUDED BEACHES
One of Thailand’s bigger islands only a short cruise away from Koh Samui. It’s known for its fullmoon party at Had Rin beach but we take you to a beautiful quiet bay on the other side of the island where you can snorkel, we can take you in to the beach for sunbathing or we cruise around the whole island and enjoy the amazing view.
The islands of the park are covered in beach forest, mangrove forest and limestone forest areas, and are home to an abundant bird life as well as Asian Long-tailed Monkeys, sea turtles, tortoises, lizards, pythons and wild pigs. An abundance of sea life is at home in crystal waters making for good snorkelling conditions. Tall limestone massifs with jagged rocky overhangs that lead through to hidden lakes, make it easy to imagine this being a perfect pirates’ refuge. Angthong, was the inspiration for the book and movie ‘The Beach’, starring Leonardo Di Caprio, and in fact half of the movie was shot on location here, as well as at islands on the Andaman Coast.
The “Turtle Island” located north from Koh Samui and Phangan. It’s called the Turtle Island because it looks like a turtle when you look at it from Phangan. It’s the island in Thailand that certifies most divers in South East Asia, with amazing diving and serenity you can take The Escape Yacht around the island to see great beaches or why not snorkel with black tip reef sharks. Koh Nang Yuang is also located here, it’s 3 small islands combined with one beach, the only place in the world.
