I don't like to give a poor review because everyone's thoughts are different. My rating will say what I think but you my friends will make up your mind. This is just how our day went. Pickup from hotel was spot on time. Speedy minibus until we get to another hotel. 20 minute wait for two immaculately dressed and prepared... More

A day trip snorkeling and scuba diving took us out to this small island. The boat trip from Phuket was scenic and fun in some of the bigger waves we ran into. Once at the island and having jumped into the water I was shocked to discover a revolting amount of trash and plastic floating around the multiple bays we... More

This place have awesome beaches, just be aware that the pier is a mobile pier which moves a lot with the waves. Therefore, bring comfortable shoes. No HILLS, I saw some girls on hills having issues at the pier.

Too many visitors and inconsiderate tourist at certain time of the day. Best is to check with local guide or your trusted concierge at the hotel when planning your trip here (as the timing for visiting changes with rainy seasons)

We went on a tour with Nikorn Marine to Coral Island and Racha Island in Phuket. It was a well organised tour with high powered speedboats taking no time at all to reach the islands. Lunch was provided, as was all snorkelling gear. Pick up and delivery back to our accommodation was also included. If you don't want the busy... More

Too many day trippers but head on to Siam Bay, Crystal clear water and you get to snorkel before 11am and after 4pm at ease. Lovely.

I Had two dives here with ECO divers they chose this place as it was a pretty cruisey dive. I saw heaps of fish and the water was beautifully clear and oddly clean. I didn't make land-fall, but the island itself looked quite nice. There are more interesting dives, but the skill level need increases pretty rapidly. I have done... More

Living in Phuket since many years, one gets a good idea where to go at what time. The reason I am saying this, tourism has taken off in such a way, everywhere you go, it is busy. My preferred way is by private sailing yacht or motor yacht - not by one of these join in speed boats. They are... More
