Villagers say that during the lowest tide period, the three islands will become one. “Koh Pha” when they became one island has an area of up to nearly 1 square kilometer.

In the past, Koh Pha was a small island of about 4-5 rai. On the island, there were many pine trees and coconut trees. In 2004, there was an earthquake and tsunami that hit several Andaman coastal provinces, which caused Koh Pha to disappear from the map, leaving only the sandbar that emerged during low tide.

This area is also a diving spot with a lot of coral and aquatic animals. The aquatic animals that we can see are the Nemo or the clownfish.
