Koh Tarutao is a part of Tarutao National Marine Park, located in Satun Province of Thailand. The island is 26 km long and 11 km wide and is close to the border of Malaysia.

Koh Tarutao Highlights

  • Talo Wao historical trail

    Talo Wao is located east of the island. During world war II, the building was a bed prison hospital for the Thai criminal and political prisoners who were held on the island including the son of Rama VII. Many of the prisoners died from Malaria and the rest who have survived became pirates, both the prisoners and the guards. You will also find a beautiful limestone cliff near the old prison site.

  • To Bu Cliff

    It’s a block of limestone designed with steps leading to the top where you will catch the beautiful view of the sea, Tarutao’s mountains, and Laem Chorakae. The cliff is a 114-meter high and you will find a sign leading to a trail with a gnarly wall of rocks. The cliff is located behind the Visitor Centre at Ao Phante and it will take you around 15 minutes to reach the top.

  • Ao Son Bay

    Located south of Mo Lae Bay, Ao Son Bay is considered to be the quietest and best location on the entire island and the only bay on the west side of Tarutao. You will get to see different types of animals like Raptors and Phytons, that usually become more active at night, and don’t forget the turtles that come to lay their eggs during breeding season.

  • Luu Doo Waterfall

    Head to the Luu Doo Waterfall after you finish your trip to Ao Son Bay as it is the beginning of the trail to the waterfall. Luu Doo Waterfall is the only waterfall in Tarutao National Park, the waterfall has plenty of beautiful underwater rock formations with sunlight reflecting on the clear water, which makes it a view worth seeing.
