  • 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.
  • Great place Limit of people 500 per day. If high season may wait even since 3 o'clock for your line. But out of season easy and calm. No bikini allowed. Snorkel extra 50 thb Kayak, cayak, paddling 1h 100 thb Beach chair 20 thb Go there 20 min by boat Go back same. Stay there and rest.
  • 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
  • It was really beautiful island. It was a place where a very safe and clean sea was maintained because it was under the control of the Thai Navy. Not so many tourists, it was a pleasant and relaxing trip. You can enjoy snorkeling on the island, and you can see countless fish in clear waters.
  • Always a great place to start diving journey
