Mu Ko Similan National Park, Similan Islands

3.2
#2 of 15 in Beaches in Phang Nga Province
Explore the sloping coral reefs and huge underwater boulders of Mu Ko Similan National Park, a snorkeling and diving paradise. Granite formations create underwater mazes, riddled with holes and arches, where swirling currents run in every direction. The clear waters teem with tropical fish in every color and are home to sea turtles, dolphins, whale sharks, and more. Above the waves, the park contains an archipelago of nine islands, home to pristine white sand beaches and a diverse set of wildlife, including rare birds and gigantic monitor lizards. Be aware that some of the islands and reefs are closed off as part of conservation efforts. Take the guesswork out of planning a Similan Islands vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Clear water, white sand beaches and coral reefs, but is pretty lacking (hope not to close the island coming soon!) There is a fish swimming all around us. Visitors play the mobile seas. Time washed on to the shore, then see a good fun. Traveling solo to feel envious people go as a couple or family ...

  • Our boat left from 3 hours up the coast north of Patong Beach. The drive to and from the boat takes a lot out of a person. The actual boat trip out to the islands is another couple hours each way so k...  more »
  • For the first time visited the Similan in 2013, with a two-day tour. At the same time and on the island of Tachaj, it's 11, the northernmost island of the Similan Islands, which was opened for visits from 2010 to April 2016 onwards. Then it was the cleanest, it was another name for Virgin (Virgin) because overnight on it was forbidden. In the year 2013 the day it has visited no more than 100 tourists, in April 2016-till 2000 tourists. November 2016 onwards is closed to tourists because they had caused significant harm to the island's ecosystem. In November 2013 year overnight was in the tent Island 8 (inflatable double mattress, two towels, flashlight). In March 2018 year acquaintances asked to make them company in a two-day tour. Overnight was 4 Island tent. Conditions are Spartan: on each mat thickness 5 cm, pillow and sleeping bag. As it got dark, but mosquitoes appeared when I got out of the tent about 22:00 mosquitoes disappeared altogether (a strange phenomenon) and not bothered until dawn. And here's the volatile foxes was not allowed to sleep somewhere with 2:00 night and until this morning (they fly in circles, or hunt, whether it is a marriage of the game, and when this produce an unpleasant sound). But it's wildlife and it's OK. Because of the very large number of tourists (day) and debris after them, to come here again the desire no longer occurs.
