Ang Thong Marine Park review
Ang Thong National Marine Park is an enchanting archipelago spanning 42 virgin islands across 250 sq. km in the Gulf of Thailand, making it the largest marine park of its kind. Made famous in the novel and movie The Beach, Ang Thong National Marine Park promises some of the most magnificent scenery in Thailand. From limestone cliffs, tropical rainforest, deserted beaches with hidden lagoons, underwater sea caves, and the mysterious Emerald Lake.
Adventure to Ang Thong Marine Park to discover evergreen forests that are home to long-tailed macaques and gibbons. Watch out for oriental hornbills, herons, pacific reef egrets, and fruit bats. Kayak across hidden bays and snorkel corals reefs where joyful schools of fishes reside alongside sea turtles and rare pink dolphins. Island hopping across all gems of the Ang Thong National Marine Park from Koh Samui is guaranteed to sweep you off your feet.
Among all these islands, the most spectacular ones are Koh Wua Talap and Koh Mae Ko. Cruise to Koh Wua Talap to witness the most incredible scenery from its highest viewpoint that you can find in this part of the Gulf of Thailand. But arguably, the most recognized and popular attraction in all of the Ang Thong Marine Park is Emerald Lake, in the middle of Koh Mae Ko Island. Prepare for a short hike until you reach the bay with emerald color water as you have never seen it before.
