The pier on the island of Koh Tarutao


Koh Tarutao is located in the Tarutao National Park. It’s a rustic island for peace seekers and nature lovers. This island can only be visited in high season. In the months of May to November this island is closed to tourists. Other islands in the Tarutao National Park are closed as well. This doesn’t apply for Koh Lipe, this amazing island is open all year round for visitors.

In high season you can sleep on Tarutao. This makes it easy to explore the island and its surroundings in a few days. By the way, did you know this island was a former prison? You can read all about it in our article “The history of Koh Tarutao”. In another article you can read more about the Tarutao National Park. Thailand’s first marine park!
