This is a very clean and nice island. The water is crystal clear and the beach has fine nearly white sand. You can see turtles, dolphins and many many small fishes. Excellent location for snorkeling. A waterproof camera is recommended, so you can take pictures of the happenings in the water. I would recommend to book a tour for every... More

Some may have gone up. Or anyone who has not ever been to. Similan Islands I told them that it was very beautiful. It is a good idea to stay on the island because we do not have the time. Live with it any longer The sea is very beautiful, but we expect everyone together.

A bit faraway from Phuket. 1.30 hours drive by road to pier & further an hour plus via speedboat to the first island for snorkeling.(same time taken while returning to Phuket). The beach stop here was way too short just... More

Yes, the sand is very white like flour. But trust me that this will not be enough to make a day trip a truly enjoyable experience. The beaches... More

Had an absolutely incredible experience at the Similan Islands through Nickie at Khao Lak travel - they went above and beyond to give our group of 7 a discounted rate that included the fee to enter the park, pick-up from our hostel in Phuket Town and drop-off to our next hostel in Krabi with a very reasonable price for a...
