Koh Surin Islands were uninhabited till about the time of World War II. Even after it was declared a national park, in 1981 there were only a few hundred people to relocate. Today, park officals have a station on Koh Surin Nua, while Koh Surin Tai is home to a tiny Chao Le fishing community. In the 1960's, was a certain amount of logging, especially on the western side of Koh Surin Nua, where gum and ironwood trees were selectively cut. But the difficult terrain, as well as the problem of transporting the logs by sea, doomed the enterprise.
