The waters are still, clear, and deep. To the South of Pi Le, is a small bay which hides in a fold of a steep rock. This is called "Lo Sa Ma". Another attraction is Tham Viking, a huge, vast, and airy cave which is home to a large number of swallows. On the cave walls are ancient paintings of sailing sips similar to those used by ancient Vikings. Near the entrance, there is a spectacular collection of stalagmites and stalactites.

In 1972 Tham Viking was renamed Tham Phaya Nak or The Great Serpent Cave by H.M. the king because of a serpent like rock inside.


 

Ao Maya and Loh Sama
scenic coves on the island's western and South-eastern shores, are favourite stops for day-tripping snorkelers. Although once pristine, the corals at these coves have been marred by bad anchoring and the beaches littered with rubbish jettisoned by people on tour boats. In 1999, a Hollywood film company spent about two months shooting scenes for the motion picture "the Beach".
