Mu Koh Angthong National
Marine Park consists of 42 islands. Its main
islands are Koh Phaluai Island, Wua Chio Island, Wua Talap
Island, Mae Koh Island.
Angthong, translates as 'golden
bowl', occupies almost 250 sq km and includes 50 sq km of
limestone islands and karsts topography which rise from the sea
as dramatic rock cliffs and bizarre rock formations. Caves,
hidden lagoons and white sand beaches are there to be explored,
kayaking and snorkelling among the shallow coral gardens makes a
popular and fascinating day trip.
All of the islands are close to each other making a breathtaking
panorama sailing around the park. All the islands are of
different sizes and shapes. Most of them are covered with
tropical forests and named after their distinguishing geography,
a kind of descriptive appellation, such as 'Sleeping Cow Island'
and 'Three Pillar Island'.
Mae Koh (Mother Island) is a
must to visit. Here, an emerald seawater lake in the middle of
the island is encircled on all sides by limestone cliffs, but
linked by an underground tunnel connecting with the sea.
Reaching the lake entails a short climb of 10 minutes or so, but
is rewarded with a spectacular view across the whole park.
Most of the islands consists of limestone mountains about
10-400 meters above sea level. Because the limestone can change
its structure easily by both chemical condition and weather, the
islands have many, strange-looking caves and cliffs, and some
islands look like ancient Angkor Wat in Cambodia and Prasart Hin
