The coast of Phang Nga is located south of Khao Lak and has been a protected reserve since 1981 (Ao Phang Nga National Park). It covers an area of 400 square kilometres and over 80% of the park is covered by the Andaman sea, with over 42 large and small islands. The park is famous for its limestone tower karst islands. The best known of these islands are a group of islands called Khao Phing Kan, popularly called "James Bond Island" because it was used as a location for the James Bond movie "The Man with the Golden Gun".
