Similan Islands was just perfect, the water is so clear blue (or turqoise) that i could have never believed. We went there with a organised trip. We were able to do snorkling in several spots, there were a lot of different fishes and turtles! Just perfect. There werent that much people as if you compare it to Phi Phi etc.
