Beaches and Shorelines: Beauty and Nature Sense of Mu Koh Chang National Park

It is not unnatural for Mu Koh Chang National Park to attract local and foreign tourists because it has what it takes. Its beaches are white and smoothen by fine sands. Beaches in Mu Koh Chang can be classified into two kinds. The first kind refers to beaches which exist without human maintenance. They are ones which are unspoiled and waiting for people to get there. They are found in some secluded small islands. They are relatively of short stretches. They serve as private beaches for a couple of people. They are what you see them exactly.

Their landscape is maintained or changed by nature especially by the waves constantly slapping their shorelines. The second kind is the beaches which are near or fronting resorts or hotels. They are well-kept and maintained for tourists. Some of these beaches are added with features like pebbles, plants or rocks for aesthetic sense. They are made as perfect venues for every activity tourists can think of doing. The settings of the beaches where coconut trees are lining up near the shorelines are creating a tropical sight where beauty is hard to ignore. You can lie down on top of the white sand or on a couch and have a relaxing sunbath. Others can have fun activities along the beach like volleyball, building sand castle, burying one’s body under the sand or do early morning jogging on bare foot or strolling while enjoying the sunset view. 

 

What is amazing about the beaches within Mu Koh Chang National Park is they are relatively kept safe from strong waves. The natural location of Mu Koh Chang is protected by neighboring big land mass or islands. It is keep safe from its northern, western and eastern sides. Though its southern portion is facing the South China Sea but the presence of considerable number of tiny islands serve as wave’s barriers or breakers. The natural setting makes the beaches conducive for swimming and fun activities without the fear of big tidal disturbances. The chain of islands comprising Mu Koh Chang made the national park accessible to visit. Island hopping by boat is an experience worthy of retakes. It showcases the natural beaches and shorelines of the islands which urban dwellers or tourists love to see and experience.     

 

As a national park, the authorities of Mu Koh Chang are monitoring regularly the condition of the entire archipelago especially its beaches and shorelines. They have marine guidelines for both local residents and visiting tourists to follow and observe. Tourists who wish to do overnight stay or camp out in the beach are required to ask permission beforehand especially those beaches situated in uninhabited or secluded islands. Beaches and shorelines with shallow surrounding waters are provided with mooring buoys to protect the coral reefs and other marine life from indiscriminate anchoring or intrusion of motorboats. 

 

The beaches and shorelines of Mu Koh Chang National Park both serve the people and the islands. Their natural beauty offer solace, tranquility, relaxation and fun to locals and tourists and they protect and preserve the land mass of the islands. What is beauty to the human eyes is nature’s way of caring itself.
