Koh Man Nai - turtle sanctuary

Browse through the photowall of pictures above, and look also at the Google Map below to get a feel for the turtle sanctuary island of Koh Man Nai.

The Koh Man islands, Koh Man Nai (“inside”), Koh Man Glang (“middle”) and Koh Man Nork (“outside”), lie directly offshore from Rock Garden Beach near Mae Phim. You can reach the islands by boat from Prasere, and from the pier east of Ao Kai, near Mae Phim.

Koh Man Nai is home to a turtle breeding programme which breeds and re-introduces turtles back into the wild. Several foreigners each year pay to work in this interesting area of conservation, and many more visit the turtle sanctuary by boat.

At the north west side of Koh Man Nai there’s a beach, and further out a coral reef with abundant fish and coral, some of which is shallow enough to see whilst snorkeling.

SPT Google Map

You can click on the Map Sat Ter or Earth buttons (top right) for Map View, Satellite View, Terrain View and Google Earth View respectively, and use the + – zoom buttons (top left) to zoom in and out for more or less detail. You can also use your mouse to drag the map around, allowing you to pan in any direction, which is usually easier than using the arrow buttons (top left).
(Note that in Earth mode you will need the Google Earth plugin for your browser, but it’s quick to install and will allow you to zoom much more quickly and display popup information much better too)
