It is the first marine national park of Thailand. The park is renowned for its history and natural beauty. It is located in the Andaman Sea, around 40 kilometres from the town of Satun or 22 kilometres o$ the shore from the Pak Bara Pier. To the north, the park borders the Muko Phetra National Park, and to the south, it borders the boundary waters between Malaysia and Thailand. The park covers an area of about 1,490 square kilometres including islands and sea. Of the total 51 islands, there are 7 large islands; namely,
Ko Tarutao,
 Ko Adang,
Ko Rawi,
Ko Li Pe,
Ko Klang,
Ko Batuang,
and Ko Bitsi.
These islands have been formed into two major groups; namely, Muko Tarutao and Muko

Adang – Rawi.
The area was declared a national park on 19 April 1974, and ASEAN Heritage Parks and Reserves by UNESCO in 1982. The best time for a visit is during November to April.
Attractions in the Tarutao National Park Ko Tarutao It is the largest is land of the park, covering an area of 152 square kilometres Most of the areas are mountains with a moist evergreen forest, interesting species of plants and wildlife. Some part of the area is a mangrove forest. There are many bays, both small and large, with beautiful beaces. In the sea, various species of #sh, including 4 endangered species of sea turtle, can be been. The word ‘Tarutao’ was gradually changed from “Talotrao” in Malay, which means having
many bays. Apart from an abundance of nature, Ko Tarutao has a memorable history. In 1936, the government had a policy for the Department of Corrections to set up a reformtory estate and a prison. Being a remote island having natural elements which pose obstacles against escape, Tarutao was, therefore, chosen for this purpose. An o"ce building, houses for warders, a sleeping hall for prisoners, and an occupationaltraining centre, were built at Ao Talo Wao and Ao Talo Udang. In 1938, the#rst group of 500
prisoners was sent to the island. The number of prisoners gradually increased to a maximum of 3,000. In 1939, the government sent 70 more political prisoners resulting from the Bowondet and Nai Sip rebels, to be detained at Ao Talo Udang.
In 1941, World War II caused an impact on the Tarutao reformatory estate and made it be in short of food and medicine. As a result, a great number of prisoners died of illness. The warders and some prisoners decided to attack commercial ships sailing in the sea at the Straits of Melaka and rob goods from them. Therefore, commercial ships were scared to come by the area. In 1946, the Britishgovernment who ruled Melaka at the time successfully suppressed the pirates of Tarutao by force upon permission
from the Thai government. Later, the Department of Corrections announced the dissolution of the Tarutao
reformatory estate. After that, the island was left deserted for 26 years. On 19 April 1974, the Royal Forest Department declared the establishment of the Tarutao National Park, the #rst-ever marine national park of Thailand. Attractions on Ko Tarutao
