Description

Koh Tanga and Koh Chuku, halfway between Butang and Tarutao offer great snorkelling, diving and fishing.

The best anchorage is found on the east or west coasts between the north and south Tangas, depending on wind direction and ground swell. Alternative daytime anchorage can be found at in deeper water in 15-20 metres off the southern end of Koh Tanga.

Fantastic daytime anchorages can be found anywhere around Koh Chuku on the sandy bottom. Moorings are available. Abundance of fish life and baby sharks make this a must stop for aquatic enthusiasts.
