This is where the movie “The Beach” featuring Leonardo Dicaprio was filmed. About a 45 Min speed boat ride from our hotel Rayavadee. Well worth the trip even on a cloudy day! Looking around you feel like you’re in a screen saver from your old windows computer! Perfect white sandy beaches & crystal turquoise waters teeming with colourful marine life it’s paradise perfected.
The first thing that came to mind when entering the cliff surrounded cove was the mermaid lagoon from never never land. You can immediately feel a change in temperature difference as you drive into the warm salty wall of air. I’ve never seen water this color in my life. It was so vivid almost glowing this emerald hue. Our guide told us the water gets its color from a volcanic mineral only found on the island. He also said that you can always tell when a big storm is coming because all the dolphins take shelter in the cove, which i thought was really cool.
