Koh Ra trekking
To the north of Koh Phra Thong lies the rainforest covered Koh Ra. This island is quite different to the flat beach lined Koh Phra Thong. It is a mountainous ridge jutting out of the water; a deep green canopy covering its entire length hiding more exceptional species of animals and plants. Leopard cats, pangolin and flying fox are just a few of the many amazing creatures living here.
The mangroves around Koh Phra Thong are some of the densest and healthiest in the region. Forming a protective buffer between land & sea, these habitats are highly important from a number of different standpoints. Find out more about mangroves at the Koh Phra Thong website.
Local guides offer regular longtail trips to the mangroves . There is at least one local guide who masterfully steers his way through Koh Phra Thong island along a mangrove lined tributary which is only accessible at high tide.
