Si Phang Nga National Park (Thai: ศรีพังงา) is in Phang Nga Province in southern Thailand, covering the eastern parts of the districts Khura Buri and Takua Pa.

The landscape of the park is dominated by rugged mountains covered with dipterocarp forests, similar to the Khao Sok adjoining it to the east.

The establishment of the park was announced in the Royal Gazette, Issue 105, Chapter 60 of 16 April 1988.
