KYUNN MEE GYEE SW BAY. 10°52.111N, 97°53.792E

Anchor in 8 metres on a sandy bottom off the fringing reef in the south bay. There is a superb beach ashore and great jungle walking. The water clarity in this area is exceptional.

Anchor in 12-15 metres on white sand to the southern side of the bay. The visibility here is so good that you can see the bottom in 30 metres of water. At the southern end of the beach is a spectacular waterfall that brings crystal clear, cold mountain water down to the beach.
