  • I visited on Liveaboard. It was very efficient to dive at the best dive point on the island, and it was the best trip for divers.

  • Beautiful islands, great snorkeling but the distance is insane! We stayed in Patong beach and we had to take a 2.5 hour ride and then over an hour speed boat in open ocean...the bot ride was bumpy and not enjoyable. After being on road for over 4 hours you enjoy the island for like 2/3 hours max. It’s a beautiful place but even with the new limit on tourists it felt too busy.
  • Wonderful Island!!! One of the most beautiful island I ever been. Water is crystal clear, beaches were very clean, view was really amazing. Ocean is earm and quiet. The only problem it’s the amount of people visiting it at the same time. Although, they say now it’s better and regulated, because after this November just a few companies can go to the Island and there’s a maximum of people per day. Price of the tour was 2.400 bath with “Amazing Tour”. Includes breakfast, lunch, water and ice cream when you come back. It was well organized. They pic us at 6:00 am from the Hotel in Phuket (near to Kata Beach) then was 2 hrs driving to the complex who organized the tours. Then you can have a little breakfast and take your snorkeling equipment and know your itinerary for the day. We come back to the Hotel by 19:15.
