Pranburi Forest Park

pranburi_forest_park_thumbThe Pranburi Forest Park protects the mangrove forest of the Khlong Kao-Khlong Kob National Reserve Forest. It is located at the mouth of the Pranburi River to the Gulf of Thailand in Pranburi district, Prachuap Khiri Khan. The park covers an area of 3.17 km² and was declared a forest park by the royal forest development in 1982.

Pranburi forest park consists of Pran Kiri beach, mixed forest and mangrove, it has naturally beauitful scenery and wildlife. The Pranburi river also runs through the middle of the forest.

There are a few nature trails you can take, the two most popular are those closest to the vistors center. The beach route takes you along a path through the sea pine trees running alongside the beach. The other being the mangrove trail, which is a winding round trip of about 1km along a raised wooden platform through a mangrove forest. There are several types of tropical flora and wildlife to see such as the red claw crab, mud skippers and kingfisher birds.

Feeling peckish, facing the beach is a real good restaurant that serves up delicious Thai food and ice creams for dessert or grab a mangrove coffee.
