Surin Islands - Thailand
Koh Surin National Marine Park rates as one of Thailand's prime island locations. The two main islands Koh Surin Nua (North Surin Island) and Koh Surin Tai (South Surin Island) form the bulk of the land mass. The other 3 satellite islands both enhance the overground vistas and provide supplementary fringing reef.
The Surin Marine Park is a shining example of natural beauty. It plays host to phenomenal range of flora and fauna on the land and in the sea. The casual tourist may be able to enjoy a glimpse of the park's promise whilst the naturalist can marvel at the impressive bio-diversity.
Koh Surin - A naturalist's dream
The Surin Islands are layered with ancient rainforest which provide a home to a number of interesting species. These include Monitor Lizards, Flying Fox, Reticulated Python and Pig-tailed Macaque to name but a few. There have also been over 90 species of bird reported on the islands.
In the water the nature is even more impressive. An extensive coastline imparts a long fringing reef around the islands. On the east side there are numerous bays, sheltered from the the open sea. These sections display the most impressive coral reefs. With more than 200 coral species present here this affords the observing visitor the most impressive diversity of corals in Thailand.
