Explore & Discover

Aerial view of Racha Noi Island in Phuket Thailand in summer.

To the South of Phuket there is a 100 nautical mile string of inshore islands, stretching from Koh Phi Phi to the Malaysian border. They offer tranquility and many opportunities for exploring.

East and South East of Phuket Island, the fabulous Phang Nga Bay, Krabi and Phi Phi Islands, together form an area of about 500 square miles. Here you will find sheltered sailing in all seasons.

The entire area is dotted with impressive lime stone formations, honeycombed with caves and fringed by mangroves. Three major rivers plus a couple of smaller ones flow in the Phang Nga Bay.

This is very much catamaran country, one could cruise here for many months exploring creeks, rivers and drying out in the mangroves. A typical feature are the hongs, high limestone islands which have collapsed in the middle, leaving a landlocked lagoon. Several of these lagoons are accessible by dinghy or kayak at low tide through caves.

Further attractions are Railey Beach, said to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and the well-known Phi Phi Islands offering impressive surroundings as well as great nightlife.

North and North West of Phuket one finds the Similan Island Group. They offer the best Thailand sailing trips, Thailand sailing vacation, bareboat sailing Thailand including best diving and snorkeling in Thailand.
