A Similan Islands daytrip from Phuket is an ambitious adventure. However, it is possible for those who want to experience one of the world’s top ten snorkelling and dive sites on a tight itinerary. There are nine islands to choose from featuring rocky outcrops and gorgeous white sand beaches that make up the Similan Islands National Park.
Touring by speedboat means you could reach the Similans in 90 minutes under perfect conditions (from November to April only), providing just enough time to explore the underwater scenery in one of the world’s most stunning marine reserves.
Or if you have more time many prefer to discover Similan Islands Phang Nga over two or three days. This allows for island hopping to visit all the best snorkelling spots, explore the virgin jungle and stay overnight in a tent or rented bungalow.
