“Stunning (once the day trippers leave!!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

The Similan Islands are beautiful - we stayed 2 years ago on Island four in the tents and returned in April 2012, this time staying in the bungalows for 2 nights. The beaches are beautiful, however between 11am and 3pm the island is very busy due to day trippers. Once everyone leaves then you have the beach almost to yourselves! The snorkeling wasn't as good as it was two years ago - we felt there were far fewer fish and noticeably less coral. The bungalows are very basic - we actually preferred the tents to sleep in.

“Diving Similans”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

I had heard that the Similans had the best diving in Thailand. I did a liveaboard trip with Wicked Diving. The staff were exemplary but the dive sites were a bit of a letdown as the visibility was quite poor and there were few pelagics even on the Western side. I liked the diving in PNG a lot more.
