Mu Ko Ang Thong National Park is the second largest national marine park in Thailand. Located about twenty kilometers west of Koh Samui island and composed of 42 islands, it is also one of the most beautiful ones. In general, the boat tours offer go to Koh Wua Ta Lap island whose summit offers the most famous and magnificent view of the park after a quite exhausting 500 meters climb, to go see Talay Nai on Koh Mae Koh island which is an inland sea and is sometimes called the lagoon and which again requires an ascent but shorter and only made of stairs to reach it, and go on Koh Paluay for relaxation, sometimes eat lunch and sea kayaking. The other important islands in Ang Thong Marine Park are Koh Wua Chio, Koh Samsao, Koh Phai Luak, Koh Ka, Koh Hin Dap, Ko Wua Kantang. Often a boat trip in Ang Thong National Marine Park also involves a bit of snorkeling as there are pretty coral reefs in the park.

The national park rangers office is located on Koh Wua Ta Lub just behind a pretty white sandy beach with turquoise sea and a few langur monkeys that can sometimes be seen at the right end of the beach where a trail to Tham Bua Bok cave and its flowering lotus-shaped stalagmites and stalactites starts. Koh Hin Dub has the longest and most spectacular beach in the national park.

I recommend this tour to visit Ang Thong Marine park (I tested it myself).

How to get to Ang Thong National Marine Park ?

The best way to visit Ang Thong National Maritime Park is to take a boat tour through an agency. They are usually done by speedboat, or sometimes by junk. Prices vary according to the type of offer, the cheapest taking you on boats of 40 people. To avoid the crowd, it is advisable to choose agencies that offer very early departures. I chose Samui Insolite that you can contact via its website to organize this tour. But you can find other agencies of course.
Another option is to take the wooden ferries that join the 3 main islands, either for a day trip using them to go from one island to another and then back to Samui, or to go there and spend the night in a bungalow (around 1,000 to 1,5000 THB) or tent (250 THB) on Koh Wua Ta Lap. Reservations recommended via Thai national parks website which is unfortunately not that easy to use and requires payment by bank transfer but again an agency can book it for you. It is also possible to come with your own tent otherwise you can rent everything you need to camp at the Visitor Center.
