This is a quiet location with beautiful views of the sheer cliffs of Koh Chong Lat to the west. The anchorage is on a direct line between the two islets shown on the chart, in 8-10 metres, near a lovely mangrove-covered flat, which is awash at high tide.

This spot is good for all wind conditions, though mid-tide currents of up to three knots mean that care should be taken if swimming from the boat. Local lore has it that there are no longer any crocodiles in the area, although there are families of sea otters which can be spotted at dusk.

To the east on the mainland at Leam Sak village is an excellent seafood restaurant which can be accessed directly by dinghy at high tide or via a concrete jetty on the west side of the headland at the head of the mangrove creek.
