Koh Talu is a privately-owned island resort which is a 30-minute boat ride off the coastal town of Bangsaphan. The entire island is also renowned for resembling a giant whale.
Covered in tropical trees, Koh Talu is truly an idyllic setting and you could make for a good trek through them or you could hire a mountain bike from the resort on the island.

Underwater you’ll find stunning coral reefs and a diverse array of fish including parrotfish and wrasse. You can request the help of a professional guide if you feel hesitant on your own. You can also go fishing and bring some crabs back up to the shore!
