Koh Talu is a beautiful island in Phang Nga, Thailand. Unlike most of the islands in Thailand, the Koh Talu Island remains noisy with huge crowds attracted to this place, but one can enjoy its scenic beauty all the most when it is without crowds.

Koh Talu

Koh Talu Island is located at Khao-Lam-Ya,Mu Koh Samet national Park. This island is about 45 meters high.This island spreads over a total distance of about 27.28 acres mostly covered with dense forests. The Koh talu Island is rich in natural resources. There is a high steep cliff to the west and white sandy beaches cover the east as well as the west. The water in Koh Talu Island is crystal clear and the cliff to the west has been hallowed out by the sea in the shape of a Talu. There is a pass with a a 30 meter hole at the centre from which a boat can easily pass through. This is a result of natural erosion. The Koh Talu Island is the native place for numerous swifts. Activities like snorkeling and swimming are mostly practiced in the Koh Talu Island. One very interesting feature of the Koh Talu Island is that when the sea retreats the Phang Nga becomes a mountain and the Koh Talu becomes a river of fresh water, which erodes the limestone faster than the sea water making small caves and hongs. The island is a diving spot and has a beautiful coral garden with variety of fishes.
