Idyllic beaches and untouched rainforests backed by limestone cliffs – Thailand’s scenery really is cruising perfection.

Thailand’s western coastline is the ultimate in remote island escapes. While it has its fair-share of high-end tourist centres, it’s the hidden archipelagos tucked away from the droves of holidaymakers that make the Thai seas worth navigating. As beautiful as Phuket and Ao Nang may be, you’ll never struggle to find a spot on the beaches of Ko Yao Yai or Ko Rok Noi. Spot tropical fish amongst the secluded reefs of Tarutao National Marine Park, and explore the jungles and limestone cliffs of the Krabi province. If you’re lucky, the waters will be all your own, without another boat in sight.

Highlights of Thailand

Tarutao National Marine park Island for snokelling

Explore the islands of Tarutao National Marine Park

In the Strait of Malacca off the southern coast of Thailand lie the 51 islands of Tarutao National Marine Park. Considered one of Thailand’s most beautiful and unspoiled regions, the islands provide incredible beaches and snorkelling opportunities. This area is a must-see for wildlife lovers, with langurs, macaques, fishing cats and sea otters on display in their natural habitats.

Beautiful corals and fish species in Surin island sea side

Go snorkelling in the Surin Island

The Andaman Sea is bursting with coral reefs, and the swimming and snorkelling doesn’t get much better than in the Surin Islands. Adding the allure of this well-kept secret are the seafaring Moken locals, famous for their ability to hold their breath underwater for minutes on end while out searching for shellfish and eels.

Sea side and the junle area of Ko Yao Yai in Thailand

Swim in the waters at Ko Yao Yai

Ko Yao Yai in the Andaman Sea is one of those places where eternity feels too short a stay. Imagine Phuket before the tourism industry got a hold of it, and you’re coming close. It’s a prime location for swimmers, snorkellers and sunbathers looking for somewhere quiet, and plays host to a huge variety of fish and birdlife.

  • Explore the islands and waters of Taruatao National Marine Park, and feast on an island beach barbeque on Adang Island.
  • Spend a memorable night at Bung Ae House for some traditional home-cooked Thai food.
  • With a full day in Ao Nang, there’s a range of optional activities to take part in ­– everything from a Thai cooking class to a traditional Thai massage, snorkelling to rock-climbing, a bike-ride to the local waterfall or a long-tail boat trip to Railay Beach.
  • Climb aboard a songthaew for a tour of the beautiful Ko Yao Yai with a local guide.
  • Snorkelling, kayaking, fishing and stand up paddle-boarding are all available straight off the boat at destinations throughout the trip.
