About Mu Ko Ang Thong National Park
Located in the Gulf of Thailand in Surat Province, Antong Islands National Marine Park was established in 1980 and is a charming, colorful and popular marine park consisting of 42 small islands covering an area of 102 square kilometers with only 12 square kilometers of land area.
The Marine Park is home to charming islets, silvery white beaches, clear waters, blue skies, lush forests, jagged cliffs, hidden lagoons and a wide variety of wildlife, which together make up the park’s most beautiful and pleasant natural landscape. Walking into Ocean Park is like walking into a tropical paradise, where not only is it peaceful and relaxing, but also comfortable and pleasant, allowing every visitor to deeply appreciate the vastness of the ocean, the boundlessness of the beach and the charm of the island. Visitors can stroll along the beach to enjoy the sea view, lie on the beach to sunbathe, take a boat to explore the island, and even dive into the bottom of the sea to see the underwater world. In such an elegant environment, even if you do nothing but quietly close your eyes and listen to the song of the sea is also a great enjoyment.
How to get there
There are airport buses running to various beaches at the airport. Tickets are sold at the service desk. It takes about 5 minutes to get to Big Buddha Beach and about 15-30 minutes to get to other beaches. In addition, there is a limited number of airport shuttle buses, so sometimes you need to wait for a bus.
Cabs start at 200 baht.
