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.

We did the 2 days one night tour sleeping in tent. I can say there were some good things and some bad things about it. The water is amazing and we were lucky enough to encounter sea turtles on a couple of occasions. On the other hand there was hardly any fish in the water and the coral looks dead.... More

We visited the island in a sunny day, the island was beautiful and it was a great place for sunbathing and swimming as well as snorkeling. We must visit this place in our next holiday.

Just stunning! The water is super clear and warm, the sand is like fine white powder - it's a paradise.... except for all other tourists :) But even with all other people it’s still a paradise like place. If you’re lucky enough to visit island number 4 there is a "viewing platform", the sign says 350 meters.... yeah, that’s a... More
