Koh Lipe is the pulse of Tarutao National Park and offers island hopping, snorkeling, fishing, etc., we strongly suggest visiting the surrounding Islands on day trips, to truly experience the true beauty of the national park environment.

Island Hopping


There are around 50 islands around koh Lipe. The Marine Park gives you the feeling of being an explorer, discovering the far ends of the world. All of the islands are uninhabited and undeveloped except for one. This island, Koh Adang, is inhabited by Chao Ley "sea-gypsies" who still earn a living from fishing. The Marine Park is famous for its natural beauty, untouched by development. The islands are all located within a short boat ride from each other. Koh Adang and Koh Rawi are the biggest and both have a few trails for those that like walking through the jungles.

Fishing


Our local guides Chao Lay “Sea Gypsies” have derived their livelihood from fishing around Koh Lipe and Tarutao for centuries. Based on the tide, the currents and the weather they know when is the best time to go, where to go and how to catch fish. Koh Lipe and the nearby islands offer some of the best fishing spots in Thailand, Jack fish, king mackerel, grouper, snapper, queen fish, tuna and marlin are some of the fish you can catch. Trolling, Jigging and life bait fishing are the techniques used for catch different kinds of fish.
