The islands are really beautiful, with ultra clear water and lovely golden sand. Unfortunately this makes them a Mecca for day tripping tourists far and wide. The sheer numbers of tourists coming for a few hours is crazy which totally spoils what would be a...More

If staying in Phuket it can be a fair bus ride to one of the tour operators going to the Similian Islands that are located around Kho lak. Its a long day but so well worth the visit. The Islands are part of a National...More

Don't ever go on speedboat trips as they overcrowd and ruin beaches. Liveaboard is a much better way and more friendly to the nature and Similans, but a bit more expensive. Better to do less but more enjoyable trips. Koh... More

We had same interests like u. . Krabi is a great beach. However for swimming patong beach is the best. It has many people but you will find many quiter dpots too. Nai ham beach is great too. Phi lhi island tour qas a wasted of time. James Bond tour was good as it involved canoeing.

For this year, the islands (all Similan, TaChai, and Surin) will be closed on May 16, 2014. However, it is subject to the sea condition as well.
