Fossil Shell Beach is also known as Su-san Hoi in Thai, which translates to "Seashell Graveyard". The beach is located about 7 kilometres towards the west of Aonang and is a popular attraction amongst tourists. The site is famed for its compressed slates of 40 million old shellfish that has hardened over the years to a form of concrete. The shells can be viewed at three different sites - Susaan Hoi Site 1, Susaan Hoi Site 2 and Susaan Hoi Site 3. Though entrance prices are slightly overpriced for foreigners, a visit to the area is recommended for travellers and tourists to Aonang - particularly for those with a penchant for geology and the outdoors.
