Absolute paradise. Less crowded than Maya bay, and almost as picturesque. We visited the island on a private tour in a longtailboat, and were blown away with the golden white sand and green/blue shades of water. We didn't try any snorkeling, but were happy just relaxing. We arrived around midday, there was a reasonable amount of people, but wouldn't call... More

We took a longtail boat tour from aonang and it took 45 minutes to reach the first island. The ride itself was nice and scenic and the beaches were clean. But the water was murky and we couldnt see any fish or corals when snorkeling. We expected a whole lot more than this, thinking that it was quite similar to... More

I thank God for taking Hong islands tour to visit God's paradise. I envy the boats sailors since they should be angles authorized by God to visit his garden on daily basis. Do not miss this tour as it is much more enjoying the more famous visit in Maya bay in Phi Phi Lei island. The tour starts by Pak-bia... More

We visited this island by hiring a longtail boat from Ao Nang and based on my experience that would be the best way to visit the islands near Ao Nang - it provides you more comfort, can spend time in a relaxed manner and also can get to the islands earlier than others. Try getting here by around 8.30 -... More

We took a long tail to Hong Island. The trip was an experience with water coming through the side of the boat and so on but I guess thats what you expect from a long tail. It was fun. Our trip to Hong Island involved a stop at Pakbia (spelling?) and then to Hong Island because of the waves. The... More

Its a great beach waters are transparent and sand is white and very soft. The crowd is less and you can enjoy swimming snorkelling. The back ground is very scenic. The view is just amazing. Their are good clean toilet facilities on the beach.

We took this island tour because the picture in the brochure looks really nice. Don't get me wrong, the beach is nice but it is too crowded. It was sold to us for swimming and snorkelling. When we arrived in the beach, there's a big plastic pier where boats park (which was removed from the picture in the brochure). There... More
