Suggested Itineraries - 72 Hours: Day 1
Covering over 100 square kilometres of land and sea, it was also the inspiration for the Alex Garland's bestseller, The Beach (the movie was filmed elsewhere though). The area is also home to a rich variety of wildlife such as dolphins, sea otters, long-tailed macaques, leopard cats, wild pig, brahminy kites, kingfishers and more. Koh Paluay, the only island inhabited, is home to sea gypsies who still maintain their traditional lifestyle. While it is not possible to visit each island, day tours make stops at different locations for a combination of hiking, kayaking, snorkeling and beach time.
