Do a liveaboard from Khao Lak to really appreciate this place. You need a few days. The diving is amazing.

Similan - just beautiful - but consider whom You visit it with. Well, 2 Sisters people were quite nice, but according to leaflet - we were supposed to visit 4 islands. During brefing we were said - "3, maybe 4 islands". Try to guess, how many islands we've visited? ;] Yes. Three. And a speedboat wasn't "bumpy" - it was... More

It was a very good experience. The sand is very white, the nature and the view is stunning. It's also a good place for snorkeling. Sadly, it's very overcrowded, the boats just arrived and arrived, but you won't notice if you just sit in the beautiful sand and crystal clear water and watching the view:)

Wonderful experience thanks to our funny, friendly ladyboy crew. Unspoiled corals/glorious fish/octopus/sea turtles/Conga eel/snake were all seen. A wonderful day out!

I really loved these islands. The sand is so nice, soft and the water is so clear. The snorkeling areas are great : you can see a lot of fishes and if you're lucky enough maybe some turtles. In order to get there you have to take a speedboat which is a great experience that you'll never forget.

The worst trip of our holiday all the boats converge flies on food toilet facilities not good enough - give this a miss not worth the money or a day out of your holiday.

Take Andaman tours Main tour biz If you find walking on ramps, unstable surfaces a problem, rethink any of these tours. They have ramps hard for the young to walk down. On and off boats are via small areas. Beach stops are all with boat in the water. Jump in knee deep and wade to sand. If none of this... More

These islands are approximate 1 hour 30 minute by speed boat from mainland. They are of ecological and geographical interest as one of natures phenomena such as the Surin islands and Tachi. Amazing marine life although coral still damaged and trying to revive. The vast amount of dive boats in the area reflects this. The beaches and waters are stunning... More
