One of the most exotic-looking islands of the Ang Thong National Marine Park: Koh Mae Koh is a sleepy little island, marked by emerald-green waters of the Talay Nai sea in the laps of towering limestone mountains.
The island is a beautiful cluster of powdery beaches, mountains, and secret caves harbouring stalactites and stalagmites. Far away from the busting coasts of other islands, Koh Mae Koh also nurtures a beautiful diversity of marine and wildlife.
If this isn't paradise, what else is? The Marine Park Ang Thong extends to almost 250sq km, about 25 nautical miles from Koh Samui. Hundreds of small limestone islands and karst topography await you, which rise from the sea as dramatic rock cliffs and bizarre rock formations.
And a few hundred more beaches at this archipelago are just deserted. If that sounds too boring for you, you can look forward to caves, hidden lagoons and exciting hiking tours as well as spectacular vantage points.
Main island is Ko Wua Talap, that contains park headquarters as well as tourist information center, a restaurant, a cave, some basic tourist bungalows as well as a famous view point. More wildlife and fauna are found on Wua Talap, which is home to groups of monkeys (Dusky langurs), and sea turtles, tortoises, monitor lizards, pythons and wild boars are regularly sighted. Some 50 species of birds twirl through the unspoilt jungle as well.
It is an absolutely unique experience to visit Ang Thong National Park by private yacht and stay a few nights enjoying the wondrous surroundings to yourself.
With a powerboat you can reach the islands of Koh Samui within about 1 hour, a sailing boat takes about 3.5 hours.
Value Added Tax (VAT) is a tax that is levied on consumer goods and services in almost every country in the world and, similar to the US sales tax, increases the final price for consumers accordingly. The current VAT rate in Thailand is 7%.
This tax revenue is used to finance public facilities such as piers and jetties, staff and Marinne rescue services.
ATTENTION: Nobody likes to pay taxes, which is why some providers of yachts waive VAT for their customers in order to be able to act more cheaply than the legal competition. However, companies that offer services without VAT are acting illegally and thereby also putting their customers in an illegal position that can be prosecuted by the government. A business transaction without VAT is illegal by definition, which is why no insurance cover or legal claim to correct service provision can be granted in this case.
Since our yacht charters also have many corporate customers who are exempt from VAT, we show our prices net and add the VAT in the online cost estimate in order to offer all customers the highest possible cost transparency.
