Some of these limestone rocks that look like mountains, have been formed some 500 million years back. The mangroves serve to protect the shoreline from the sea and prevent soil erosion by forming a barricade.

Other than squirrels, mud crabs and monkeys, you will also see Monitor Lizards that can easily dive and stay underwater for a long time. The lizards are harmless though. Sometimes you will also see crocodiles. In the waters there are many varieties of fish (some 40 species) and if you are lucky, you can also spot a dolphin or even an otter. There are several species of birds that you can see in the geo park including the popular kingfishers and kite birds.
