Similan Islands (Mu Ko Similan)

The Similans, a group of 11 uninhabited islands about 50 km from the Phang Nga coastline, are probably the most uniquely beautiful islands. They are under the National Marine Park protection and with crystal clear 50 meters visibility quite famous for lovers of diving and snorkeling , as well as being idyllic above the waves, too.

Imagine a dreamy chain of eleven remote islands tucked away in the Andaman Sea, incredibly beautiful, with a coral reef that’s 5000 years old. Covered in jungle and grandeur rocks, with remarkable beaches and marine life unmatched in Thailand, the Similan Islands promising perfect images of paradise from any angle.

Visiting this archipelago by private charter yacht and staying for a few days is a lifetime experience like no other. Not only are you able to dive at the best times, experience cinematic sunrises and sunsets and the unique atmosphere of the sea, you also avoid the crowds of day visitors who frolic here between 8am and 4pm.

  1. Ko Hu Yong *
