What a beautiful and remote area. This is what we call a holiday away from the beaten tracks. Dani & Karin, Zurich

Turatao Archipelago, Ko Lipe, Butang Group

The Tarutao National Marine Park consists of 51 islands located in the Andaman Sea off the coast of Satun Province of Southern Thailand. The Park consists of two island groups: Tarutao and Adang-Rawi, which are scattered from 20 to 70 kilometres distance from the southwestern most point of mainland Thailand. The park covers an area of 1,490 square kilometres (1,260 ocean, 230 island). The southern most end of the Park lies on the border with Malaysia.

Koh Lipe is a tiny island is located 70 km off the southwest coast of Thailand near the Malaysian border. It was settled by a band of sea gypsies originally from Malaysia, known as the 'Chao Lei' people or also known as Urak Lawoi. This island has three main beaches: Sunset beach, Sunrise beach and Pattaya beach. Accommodation from grass huts to air-conditioned bungalows can be found on these beaches. It is possible to walk around the entire island in little over an hour. There is great Scuba Diving found here we barely touched reefs.

Some say the Turatao Archipelago is like Phi Phi Islands 20 years ago.
True this, it is very relaxed and you still will find untouched destinations.
