About Koh Phra Thong

Thailand's Koh Phra Thong - Golden Buddha Island is named after a local legend. The story tells of a precious stolen golden buddha statue buried on the island by pirates which was never recovered.

Nowadays, the island benefits from being one of Thailand's last unspoiled coastal locations. With over 15km of largely uninhabited white sandy beaches, Koh Phra Thong is an ideal choice for those who are really looking to get away from it all.

Thailand's best scuba diving

Koh Phra Thong is the closest land mass to the Surin Islands which hosts a multitude of colourful tropical fish species and the broadest diversity of hard corals in Thailand.

Nearer still is Richelieu Rock, Thailand's best scuba diving location and considered a world top ten dive site. Richelieu has regular visits from graceful manta rays and elusive whale sharks.
