Tarutao is the largest island of the 51-island National Marine Park archipelago, located only 4 miles North of the Malaysian duty-free island of Langkawi. Now listed as one of the original ASEAN Heritage Parks, the island had been used in the late 1930s as a penal colony for Thai political prisoners. However during World War II when support from mainland was cut off, the guards and prisoners banded together and formed raiding parties on ships sailing through the waters surrounding the island. As this continued for many years the British Forces eventually eradicated the “Pirates of Tarutao” at the end of the war. Where fishermen and farmers now take it home. This is an island with profound history and beautiful scenery.
