Tropical Island

We dived off this tropical island, it's inhabitued and around 70km from shore (about 1.5 hrs on speedboat) stunning turquoise waters populated with a varied sealife.

The Similans islands are extremely beautiful. The white sand beaches are very wide and beautiful, with nice rock formations on which there are hiking trails to go on top of them and to have an amazing view over the Similan islands. The water is very clear and the coral is nice and well populated. During the mid day it tends... More

Similan National Park is only open May 1st until November 1st of each year, I've missed it a few times but it was well worth the wait. Park cost 700 Baht for the day entry, plus my transport from Chalong and speedboat - Total cost of around 2200 Baht, around $70. Yes a bit pricey for Thailand but worth every... More

I was at the Similan islands in the middle of december, 2014. It was definetely an awesome trip! When we came to the national park with the speedboat, we were given advice to not take our shoes with us, because it is forbidden at the island. First I was worried, because it was not just sand there on the ground,... More

its the no. 4 island of similar islands, the beach is one of the best in thailand, one could compare it to phi phi island's maya beach but with less crowds, even better if you go there early morning or late afternoon, or stay at the bungalow/tent. its a paradise

I have been to the islands twice, and camped for two days each time. You have to reserve a tent to camp, as well as reserve a place on a speed boat skin diving tour. I once showed up at the last minute though and there was a cancellation that gave me a place. The advertised park phone number doesn't... More

We visited these beautiful Islands with Go Andaman Travel which were a great company to go with. The islands them selves are absolutely stunning and definately worth a visit ... The only down side is as its so gorgeous everyone obviously wants to see them and it gets very overcrowded.

The diving here was good. There were certainly beautiful corals and fish. But the marine life was no where near as abundant as I would expect of "one of the top 10 dive sites in the world". Maybe it used to be 10/15 years ago, but perhaps due to coral bleaching, tsunami, pollultion, careless anchoring... much of the coral was... More
