The Pranburi River, which flows through the mountain ranges on the west, is ideal for sailing. Besides the lush green countryside, there are several interesting places to drop by for sightseeing and birdwatching.

Diving and Snorkelling
Bangsaphan, about 87 km. from the provincial town, is a fantastic area for safe snorkelling and diving in Prachuap Khiri Khan. If you are in Hua Hin, an easy access to diving and snorkelling sites can be made with tour agents. The sites are around the islands of Koh Thalu and Koh Sang where a number of beautiful coral reefs and marine life reside beneath the shallow crystal clear water. Besides, there is Koh Lamla, which is the only place in Thailand where Kung Phayaban or "cleaning shrimps" can be found. You can also mingle with the fishermen and experience the way of life in this coastal fishing community at Ban Krud Beach.
