Undoubtedly a place of geological interest but not worth the 400THB entrance fee levied to enter the national park. Some touristy souvenir and ice cream shops. Not on my must-see list.

Rock formed by Shell deposits due to certain natural condition that killed the environment for shells. Looks like concrete slab, look closely and it is not. You could see fresh Shell being formed if you visit on a low tide.

One of three fossil beaches in the area. Interesting place to checkout genuine fossils. Looks like broken concrete. Kids were bored with it.

A little bit boring, but if you want to get into the mood and spirit of the reason you came to visit, you will be walking on one of only 3 Fossil Shell Beaches on the Planet. Quite the experience if you think about it.
