Situated on the road paralleling Thai Mueang Beach, the Centre is just 4 km away from Thai Mueang Town. Founded in 1985, the Centre’s most significant task is the breeding and preservation of rare and nearly extinct seashore creatures, some of which have economic value. Its collection is definitely worth visiting, especially for families with children. Visitors will have a close look at various kinds of interesting fish and shellfish such as colourful Anemone Fish, White Snapper, Green Turtles, Scallops, etc.
The nearby beach is a long strip of clean, beautiful sand, which is unfortunately not suitable for swimming due to its steep slope and strong waves. However, it is lined with pretty pine groves trees, which make for a nice shady stroll.
The Centre is open every day from 8.30 am – 4.30 pm. Admission is free. For further information, call 0 7643 2212-4, fax. 0 7657 1008
