Ko Tarutao, an unspoiled island but attractive in Thailand
Ko Tarutao Island, the largest one of 150 square kilometers of Tarutao National Marine Park, located in Satun province of Thailand, closer to Pulau Langkawi in Malaysia thanthe Thai mainland. Tarutao is a large, thickly-forested, mountainous island rimes by fine-powdered white sand beaches and dotted by dark stone cliffs and rock outcroppings.
Perhaps more than anywhere in Thailand, Ko Tarutao is a heaven for wildlife. Sea turtles, whales, monitor lizards, crab-eating macaques, mouse deer, and countless species of birds all call the island and its surrounding waters home. It is not the optimal place for snorkeling since the water is murky compared to the other Andaman Islands, but for most, the clean and expansive white sand beaches, diverse wildlife, waterfalls, caves, hiking and stunning views more than compensate.

Because of being a national park, Koh Tarutao Island has been preserved in a natural state. There is no commercial development whatsoever, the stunning unspoiled island is unmarred by souvenir shops, travel agencies, resorts, restaurants, bars or any other privately owned businesses that have taken over many Thai Islands. A national park office, shop, restaurant, bungalows and campgrounds are the only human marks on the island. Most visitors are happy to trade luxury for pristine rainforest and mile after mile of untouched sand. Visit Ko Tarutao with Indochina tours Thailand
In addition, the Koh Tarutao Island is well-known for a place of pirates, criminals, deadly beasts and treacherous spirits, Tarutao avoided being settled until it was officialy protected as a national park in 1974, explaining its impressive, untouched old growth forest. Of course, Tarutao was less hospital in those days, with impenetrable malarial-swamps and shark-infested waters to dissuade anyone thinking of swimming for the mainland.
The island is an ideal destination for visitors, particularly for ones who love nature, outdoor activities, camping, solitude and quite. Relying on how long you enjoy being completely immersed in nature, Koh Tarutao could keep you occupied for a couple of days or a couple of weeks.
