Turtle-y Amazing

Meet Khao Lak's most loveable reptiles :) The tropical waters of the Andaman Sea have long been home to at least four species of turtles. Encounters with turtles are frequent around the Similan and Surin Islands and are a firm favourite with snorkellers and scuba divers. What’s more, you do not even have to journey out to the islands if you want to get up close with these graceful sea creatures - the two main turtle sanctuaries in the area provide an informative and pleasurable way to while away a few hours especially if you are visiting with children.  …

Kho Khao Island

Kho Khao Island

And the Tsunami Memorial by Alan Hunter Koh Kho Khao (or just KKK as it is commonly known) is a beautiful small island that lies just off the coast of Takua Pa - about a 30 minute drive north of Khao Lak followed by a 10-minute ferry ride to cross the few hundred metres of water separating the island from the mainland.
