Beautiful beaches, and the national park is very well maintained. But it is just too much plain exploitation already, packed with tourists who were all thinking that Koh Surin is less frequented than the other Thailand islands.... diving trips must be booked from mainland, or you will find yourself snorkeling 3 hours boat away from the office that sells the diving sessions, mainland.

Koh Pratong is 30 minutes away from mainland, and less frequented already, although it goes very vey quick.

Beautiful, beautiful islands. Calm waters make snorkeling perfect and there are so many different kinds of fish and coral that you can hardly believe it. Not nearly as many tourists here as on he Similan Islands. Can highly recommend that you go by Kuraburi Greenview Travel!

This place is paradise!! When you arrive on the boat and the dark blue sea turns into turquoise shallows you know you've reached heaven on Earth. Best place to snorkel in all of Thailand, we saw black tip reef sharks and green sea turtles. The snorkelling trips are SO cheap at 100 baht per person, that's the cheapest in all of Thailand and they take you to some wonderful seascapes. There is just so many fish!! Enjoy :D :D :D

Been there for the second time and it is still amazing. We were staying at Mai Ngam Beach bungalow for overnight. I guess there's only one bungalow in this beach an the rest are tents as I didn't see any other bungalow. Snorkeling on this beach, you could see a lot of cartoon fishes, eels, Parrot fishes, Blacktip reef sharks and a lot more. this place is WOW! Recommended place to go! Thing I've never seen is mangrove over the salt water. Sands on this beach is soft and white. Will probably going back. Getting there? I drove with my own car from Phuket at 6.30 A.M straight away to Kuraburi pier at 7.45 A.M.
