About Koh Libong
Koh Libong is the largest of 4 small islands in Trang Porvince with a n land area of 35 square kilometres and a permanent population of around 3,500 people. Accessible only by a 30 minute ride on a wooden longtail boat from the mainland, few tourists go to Koh Libong and there are in turn few facilities save for 4 low key resorts. There are banks or ATM machines on the island and the only electricity on the island comes from privately owned generators. What Koh Libong does have though is some great beaches and some unique wildlife.
There are two interesting things about Koh Libong for visitors. The most famous thing about the island is the protected area of mangrove forest on the east cost which is home to one of Thailand’s last populations of dugongs. Dugongs are rare type of sea mammal like a manatee which feed on sea grass and other marine plants. Estimates put the number of dugong living off Koh Libong at around 130 which gives visitors you go to the right places a fair chance of spotting a dugong. The other interesting visitor attraction on the island is the village of Batu Bute where a population of Muslim fisherman live a very basic existence in houses on stilts over the sea making a living by fishing using traditional methods.
