Koh Tapao is the island comprising of Koh Tapao Yai and Koh Tapao Noi with the distance of 800m in between. Koh Tapao Yai has fertile forests where a lot of hornbills inhabit. A stone beach with nature trail around the island and up to the hill can overlook the scenery of Sire Island.Visitors need to ask for permission prior to their visi to Koh Tapao Noi as it is the location of the southern sea level measuring station.The lighthouse area is a wonderful viewpoint and the island’s distinctive feature. It's more than a 100 years old and the first lighthouse of the south for navigation aid.
