Angthong National Marine Park:
This 102 square kilometer National Marine Park, dubbed as “The Golden Bowl of the Gulf of Thailand”, is 25 KMs west of Samui. It has been enlisted as the second national marine park since 1980. The park is composed of 42 islands such s Koh Pa Luay, Koh wua Taa Lub, Koh MaeKoh, Koh Hin Dub, Koh Nai Put and Koh Tai Plao.
Most of the islands’ terrains are limestone cliffs except Koh Pa Luay. The highest cliff situated in shallow sea near the coast is about 369 meters from mid-sea level. Due to sediments from the Taa Pee River, the sea is not quite clear. Near the southwestern coast, lies narrow coral reefs. There are many caves, openings in the rocks, and long tunnels along the rain shadow areas which are influenced by the northeastern wind. The long tunnels are nesting places of swallows.
