Panta Malacca, Ko Tarutao

Pante Malacca is Ko Tarutao’s northernmost beach and is also the main beach where the speedboat stops. The beach is a very good one, a long stretch of sand on a wide quiet beach. Pante Malacca has the most beautiful pearly white powder sand on Ko Tarutao and is surrounded by casuarinas and palm trees.

On this beach you can swim all day long and enjoy the sunset and the nature around you. Visitors in speedboats sometimes pass by, but only on the far northern end of the beach. This is where the park headquarters and most of the park bungalows are located.

Along the beach you will find a good selection of budget bungalows, which are all well worth the money. Alternatively, you can sleep in one of the tents along the beach. Electricity is available in the evening. You can book accommodation through the national park, but if you come without a reservation, bungalows are usually available.

There is only one restaurant near this beach.
