Chicken Head

The island that we anchored next to was Ko Krabi. It had a huge hong (or bay) that we checked out in the morning.

We cruised around the steep rocky cliffs of the hong. On one side, there was a small mangrove that we inspected.

After the tour, we set sail for the islands of Ko Dam Khwan (south) and Ko Dam Hok (north).

These are two small islands connected by a narrow beach that is above water in low tide. This was our first stop in really clear water and we snorkeled on the reef right behind the boat seeing schools of parrot fish, rock fish, angel fish, a see snake, trumpet fish, and giant clams. No pictures of the snorkeling activity because my family hasn’t thought to give me an underwater camera for my birthday or christmas – hint hint.

In the evening, we walked on the beach that connects the two islands at low tide.

On the south island called Ko Dam Khwan, we found the chicken head rock formation that gives the nickname for the area.
