Nature on the island is absolutely gorgeous! We went there with a group using long tail boat, so my only biggest advise would be - take the speed boat if you want an overall pleasant experience. Otherwise it's beautiful!

Very clean beach, try to go early to beat the crowds and get the beach to yourself, we went at 8:30 and it was filling up. Awesome

Beautiful island to visit part of the island hopping tour. Just a little hot but fret not as you can just undress and swim into the clear waters.

Just amazing. Go there to believe such places exist. Clear blue water surrounded by fantastic mountains. Just like in the movie "The beach".

Be sure to take your shoes with you!! The sand here will burn your feet. Our tour guide told us shoes weren’t necessary because the sand is soft powder... this is true but it’s no less than 1 billion degrees. Sad to see so much...More

All the private long boats are by the pier near Mcdonalds. The usually price for 2 people is 1200 baht but this doesn’t include your national park fee which is 400 baht.
