Gulf of Thailand with Bandon Bay in the west.

Bandon Bay (

Thai

: อ่าวบ้านดอน,

RTGS

Ao Ban Don, Thai pronunciation:

[ʔàːw bâːn dɔːn]

) is a

bay

in the

Gulf of Thailand

in

Surat Thani Province

, extending from the Sui cape in

Chaiya District

in the northwest to

Kanchanadit District

to the east. The total coastline is about 100 km. The bay is dominated by the

estuary

of the rivers

Tapi

and

Phum Duang

. The islands of

Ko Samui

,

Ko Pha Ngan

and

Ko Tao

enclose the bay on its eastern side.

The bay is relatively shallow, with water depths ranging from one to five meters. Along the coast are

mudflats

owing to the high rate of

sedimentation

, which were naturally overgrown with

mangroves

(

Sonneratia spp.

,

Rhizophora spp.

), but now mostly replaced by

shrimp farms

.
