Koh Phrathong – Khao lak

Something Special for the Snorkelers!

Koh Phrathong is Thailand’s hidden paradise.

The unseen Koh Phrathong is Thailand’s hidden paradise. It is located off the west coast of Thailand and the nearest town is Khuraburi. This tropical savannah is still quite remote and unspoilt. Here you can embrace the wealth of local cultural life and adventure across the island, enjoying the panoramic views from the local Tak Tak Cars.

This snorkeling day trip starts from Nam Keam, just north of Khao Lak. You will be collected from your Khao Lak resort and taken to the pier where tea, coffe and snacks will be waiting for you while you listen to a briefing of the day ahead. You will then join the speedboat that will take you across the small stretch of Andaman Sea and over to Koh Prathong. Make sure to enjoy the views as you cross the water – look at the beautiful mangrove forests as you make your way across.

Once you are on the island you will have the chance to take a look around the local fishing village. You will be able to see the traditional methods of fishing that are used around this part of Thailand and learn about the Thai culture here.

Next you we will travel across the savannah landscapes that are strewn across Koh Prathong. A unique environment in this part of Thailand, and quite reminiscent of views you might see on the continent of Africa. The Tak Tak car that transports you across the island will take you too the west coast. Here you will be greeted  with a beautiful golden sand beach.

Once at the beach enjoy traditional Thai food freshly cooked and served buffet style. Once you have enjoyed the food and fresh fruit spend some time relaxing on the beach or snorkelling in the sea. Swim through the Andaman and catch sight of some of the local marine life.

At the end of your time on Koh Prathong the speedboat will come to pick you up from the beach and you will depart back to Nam Kean. A taxi will be waiting for you to take you back to your hotel after a wonderful, unforgettable day at the as yet undiscovered, Koh Prathong.
