SEAP Southeast Asia Pilot-1

North Reef Island

This small island must rank amongst the most spectacular in the Andaman Islands. It is surrounded by an extensive coral reef with an incredible marine life – during a 10-minute snorkel in 2006 we counted over 50 turtles.

It is completely encircled by a great white soft sand beach and there is superb jungle walking here.
