Susan Hoi or Fossils Shell Beach, Krabi features a slab formed from a huge number of embedded various types of molluscs which can be dated to about 40 million years ago. This shell graveyard at Ban Laem Pho was once a large freshwater swamp, the habitat of diverse molluscs. With changes on the surface of the earth, seawater

flooded the freshwater swamp and the limestone elements in the seawater enveloped the submerged

molluscs resulting in a homogenous layer of fossilized mollusc shells 40 centimetres thick known as

Shelley Limestone. With geographical upheavals, the limestone layer is now distributed in great broken

sheets of impressive magnitude on the seashore. The site is located 17 kilometres from the town.
