Island Exploration around
Ang Thong Marine Park

Ang Thong – those familiar with the name of one of Thailand’s national marine parks know
that this tour into the world of remote beaches, limestone cliffs and rock formations
are examples of the country’s alluring scenery. Kayak or laze your day away!

WHY THIS TOUR?

The enticement of the tropical climates and the beachside lifestyle of Koh Samui has drawn plenty of holiday go-ers for a much-needed battery recharge spot in the Gulf of Thailand. Beyond the resorts and the sandy shores, a new world opens up, defined by its azure blue waters, uninhabited islets and rock formations that house secret lagoons and offer kayaking opportunities through archways, naturally created through the present currents.

All this and more is enveloped together in the Ang Thong National Marine Park – a 42-island counting collection of blue lagoons and amazing panoramic views of limestone cliffs, towering out of the waters. Upgrade your stay with a full day Ang Thong by speed boat to get a glimpse of Mother Nature’s finest creations.

TRAIL ITINERARY

Island Exploration around Ang Thong Marine Park

07:00 - 17:30

The day starts with an early morning pick-up from your hotel along the tropical shores of Samui, bringing you to one of Samui’s northern boat landings. A warm welcome is given by the captain and his crew to all visitors before sailing off in comfort and speed towards Ang Thong National Marine Park. The 40+ islands have been one of the islands most attractive places to find lagoons, reefs and a few deserted beaches where a variety of birds regularly can be spotted.

The curiously-shaped rock formations will soon appear, looming from afar and a day filled with exploration, relaxation and adventure await. The crew is happy to point out some of the hidden natural treasures which often can only be reached by kayak. Following these aquatic trails, you will find yourself surrounded by awe-inspiring steep rock formations. We have 250 kilometres of playing ground here, so plenty of time to find one immersed in its beauty. Islands with names such as Mae Koh (great, remote beaches and an emerald Lake called Thale Nai) and Koh Paluay are just a few of the names that will get more attention.

Lunch is included on this day at Koh Paluay before moving on to venture further into Ang Thong National Marine Park. If kayaking is not your thing, relaxing at one of the beaches or snorkelling around the cliffs are perfect alternatives. Thailand is known for its natural beauty, and this is one of those examples you cannot miss out with more than enough spots to take in the views around you. In the late afternoon, we head back to Samui’s northern boat pier where you will be escorted back by minivan to your resort on the island.
