  • Absolutely recommending this place. Beautiful island with nice snorkeling opportunity. Thai Navy is managing the place very respectfully. t-shirt and long swimpants are the outfit to ware. Only 500 people are allowed on the island a day. Beautiful fauna and flora.
  • Secluded and peaceful island with clear blue water! Island is controlled by Thai navy and only ~500 people are allowed on the island per day so you have to get to the pier quite early in the day to secure a place on the shuttle boat to the island. The downside is the toilets on the island which could be improved. Oh and bikinis are not allowed on the island
