About Similan Islands

home_sim1.jpg




Here are some of the most beautiful and diverse dive sites in Thailand, day trips and liveaboards to the islands are among the most popular worldwide. They consist of nine islands of granite rock with partially lush tropical vegetation, lapped by crystal clear water and lined partly with fine white sandy beaches.

The islands stretch over 25 kilometers, like a pearl necklace, from north to south on the Andaman Sea and located 65 kilometers off the coast of Phang Nga province. They were declared a Marine National Park in 1982.




The Similans are ideal for observing or photographing small fish by its enormous biodiversity of tropical reef fish. But not only small fish visit here, even Leopard sharks or White and Blacktip sharks are not rare also Manta rays and Whale sharks can be seen. You can visit the Similan Marine National Park from mid-October to mid-May on day trips but you will find the best conditions from November to April.

Our guests get picked up at the hotel and then taken by taxi to the pier in Nam Khem, north of Khao Lak.
