We had one night at Kuravuri Greenview Resort and joined their 3 days / 2 nights at Surin islands. Since we booked almost 6 months in advance through mail they managed to get us one of the few bungalows on the island. Only half an hour drive to the greenview pier where we got our snorkeling gear and got on a big speed boat. Not very many people.
We snorkelled 4-5 different places each day, and got more and more pretty and interesting. We were picked up at the beach by longtailboat and were only 8-10 people on the boat. Saw many new sea animals. Turtles, sharks, lionfish, nemo, triggerfish, moraine.
Breakfast was pretty small and plain but the thai set menu for lunch and dinner was very tasty and good. Almost the same every time but we didnt expect anything fancy on an island like this.
We had a serious and informative guide during our days - mister Abdul. Thanks.
The bungalow was primitive but we were very happy to have 2 bedrooms ( we are 2 adults and 2 children) and a toilet and shower. Of course no wifi and only elextricity during evening. Our friends slept in tent and it was quite unpleasent for them.
The beach by the tents and bungalows was fantastic. In fact we could find corals and many fish, clams and moraine on very shallow water. And we were not to many people there. Very calm and quite in the evening.
There is a little shop where you can buy beer, soda and chips but thats about it. Bring a little fruit or bread from the mainland or what you like.
It is very funny to go crab hunting at the beach when it gets dark. Also you can see lemurs in the trees. At some of the snorkelling spots we could feel small stingers in the waters but it was not so bad. The children forgot it quickly because it was so exiting.
Very sad when we had to leave. Would love to go back.
