While Koh Samui may be nicknamed 'Coconut Island' (and once had the most coconut trees in Thailand), there are few coconut trees that make for good tourist photos like this one at Thong Grood Bay.
For most part, the trunk of the over-20 year old tree leans out almost parallel to the water, before a 90-degree upturn towards the end. It's almost as if it realised then that it was meant to grow upwards and not outwards.
From the vantage point of the leaning coconut tree, you can see beachfronts full of coconut trees across the waters.
During low tide, you can even walk out much further into the sea. This phenomenon, known as Thale Waek (or separated sea), is when the tide is so low that it forms a 'walkway' to link two parts of the island previously separated by water.
