Koh Surin National Park is a paradise of fine white sandy beaches, thick jungle, crystal-clear waters and the most extensive coral reef in Thailand. It is also home of the Moken Sea Nomads, an ancient nomadic sea people who have lived between the Mergui archipelago of Burma and the islands of Thailand’s North Andaman coast for thousands of years.
The park is the ideal place to go for people wanting to connect with nature in its most beautiful and pristine form, escaping traditional touristy beaches with their bars, noise and crowds.
One advantage of Koh Surin is that you don’t need to dive to discover its extensive marine diversity. The shallow reefs are perfect for snorkelling and bursting with vibrant fish and colourful corals, even for those who aren’t confident in the water. If you’re lucky, you may even see turtles and whales in the area. A short boat ride away is Richelieu Rock and Burma Banks, world-class dive destinations for enthusiasts who like to go deeper.
Mu Koh Surin national park is an archipelago located approximately 70 kilometres off the western shore next to the Thailand-Myanmar border. The Park comprises 5 major islands; namely, Koh Surin Nuea, Koh Surin Tai, Koh Kai (Koh Torinla), Koh Klang (Koh Pachumba), and Koh Ri (Koh Satok).
