Adang is a group of islands in the Tarutao National Park. Among the various islands in the Straits of Malacca, Adang is the most enchanting. Its unbeatable beauty and scenic charms has attracted vacationers from faraway lands to visit and revisit the place. Because of these magical charms, the islands were much desired by the colonials powers. Had it not been the wits of Phraya Phuminart Phakdi, then governor of Satun. These islands would have been ceded to the British long ago.

The splendors of Adang are imminent in the crystal clear waters around the island, particularly when the sea is calm. The transparency of the water often leads tourists to take a quick dip, mistaking it to be shallow.

Corals are bountiful in the waters around the island. Tourists diving to admire the breathtaking beauty of the corals may also witness the enchantment of exotic fish such as rock fish, lion fish, cartoon fish, lobsters, or even friendly stingrays buried under the powdery white sands, sea porcupines, and colorful sea shells scattering around the sea floor. These marine creatures move around the limbs of corals with shaped like antlers, hills, lettuces, and mushrooms, some of which move like the flowers of the sea. Adang is truly the coral paradise.

Currently, there is concern that the nature endowed treasures are being encroached upon by selfish people who mistakenly damage them.

Apart from exquisite corals, Adang offers visitors many enchanting places to visit. Large mountainside natural reservoirs, unrelenting sonorous waterfall, crystal clear streams, and long stretched of white sand beached around the island, particularly at Ao Son where an area is set aside by the National Park to accommodate 150 campers.
