Pak Meng Info
Pak Meng Beach - or Hat Pak Meng - is a cosy tourist place, mostly attended by thai visitors on the weekends. If you are looking for the Thailand it used to be twenty years ago - you most probably will find it here.
Hat Chao Mai Nationalpark is a resort for rare bird species, sea turtles and - as one of the last worldwide - dugongs living in the sea grass fields close to shore.
From Pak Meng it's easy to reach the nearby islands like Koh Mook or Koh Kradan, which offer also a wide range of accommodation. The Islands are covered with dense rainforest or rubber trees and offer stunning white sandy beaches, perfect for lazy and relaxing beach holidays.
Nearby Trang Town is worth a visit, exploring the local markets and shopping centers at daytime, take a break at the famous Trang Coffee Shops enjoying the local specialities - coffee, cake and delicious roast pork - or spent the afternoon and evening at Trang Nightmarket, from which some say, it might be the best in southern Thailand.
Koh Ha is formed by five islands, which offer a large variety of unique dive sites like The Chimney, Twin Cathedral or Koh Ha Lagoon and impress with a manifold scenery including coral covered boulders, stunning caverns and spectacular swim-throughs as well as amazing hard coral gardens.
Koh Rok Nok and Koh Rok Nai enchant with pristine hard corals, the untouched local dive sites - Koh Mook, Koh Wean, Koh Kradan and Hin Nok - offer a vast diversity of marine macro life including highlights such as tiger-tail seahorses, countless kinds of exotic nudibranches and shrimps.
Hin Daeng and Hin Muang - two submerged rocks in merely a few hundert meters distance from each other - are covered with soft coral, anemones and gorgonians and are rated among the best dive spots in the world. Huge schools of fish circle the pinnacles, giant barracudas, jacks and tunas are passing by the reef. The encounter with manta rays and whalesharks is definetly an unforgettable experience, in greater depths also huge rays, leopard sharks and even grey reef sharks might be spotted.
