The park lies 31km from Koh Samui, accessible by a 45-minute speed boat ride or 2 hours by ferry. Here one can kayak over mangrove lined waters or drift silently to land and step onto a deserted beach. One of the first things that will strike you is the quiet. Then you’ll notice the gentle slosh of water as it glides up the sand or gurgle as it’s sucked between limestone boulders. If you’re quiet and alert, you may be lucky enough to spot a sea otter or gibbon nearby.
The tropical bird life here is good too and you are sure to be rewarded with a number of sightings.
