The Ang Thong National Marine Park is an unspoiled wonderland, an archipelago made up of 42 islands, and is in the Gulf of Thailand.
Blessed with hidden golden sandy beaches, mammoth limestones, dense forests, waterfalls, mystery coves, lakes and mangroves, the Ang Thong National Maine Park is the ultimate vacation destination. Spreading over more than 100 square kilometres of both land and sea, the park houses an affluent range of exotic marine creatures and wildlife.
Things to do
Chaweng hotels scattered about the area, like Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort, for instance, would certainly recommend a trip to this marine park. Everything from sea kayaking to diving, hiking, snorkelling, sailing and plain old lounging by the sea can be done when in Ang Thong.
How to get there
Koh Samui and Koh Pha Ngan offer chartered boats and day trip packages to Ang Thong, and doing so will also reduce your expense in getting to the islands.
For the adventurous souls who want to sleep under the stars, there are camping facilities at the Park headquarters, and you can choose from camping tents to humble bungalows to stay at.
