The marina itself is lovely but the real purpose of going there is to take a boat trip. Whilst there are lots of trips on offer, I arranged mine through the place where I was staying (Anantara). I went on a smallish speedboat (with about 15 other people) to Phi Phi Island stopping off at various places on the way. The snorkelling was particularly memorable (take an underwater camera if you can) as was the trip to Maya Bay aka 'The Beach'. Should you swim over to Monkey Beach, as I did, the monkeys will come up to you- particularly if you have food. You are advised against going there because, if bitten, you will have to go to the hospital for rabies injections (five of them so I was told). I, however, was not bitten so all's well that ends well.

Very impressive marina to start island tours the distance to the open sea was short and protected boats gain full speed soon after leaving the berths.
