Once you are in, it is like being in another world. High rock formation on the right, with tree strings hanging down over the water. You have the opportunity to see one of the big bats that are flying around.
2. Phi Phi Don Island
Clear waters with typical Thai colorful longboats docked on the harbor side of the island..

and an amazing tropical beach on the other side. With a half an hour ‘hike’ you can head up to the lookout point. Very impressive!
3. Phi Phi Leh Island
We found the map to THE Beach! Yes, we are a decade too late, but okay.

Maya Bay, famous from the movie the Beach starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Too bad that many people have found the map too making this beautiful beach too crowded.
4. Koh Hong
A secret hidden mangrove on the Andaman sea. You can only enter at low tide.

A peaceful and tranquil spot to have a look around. Not much else you can do though.
The monkeys will welcome you at Railay West beach. A great spot to watch the sunset with fellow backpackers.

During the day, walk a little further to Railay Phra Nang Bay. One of the most idyllic tropical beaches of the Thai mainland.
6. Koh Racha
A quiet island close to Phuket. The beach is wide and white, however, the water is not blue but more greenish. Many fish have their home around this island, making it a perfect dive area.

Do not expect a busy nightlife at Koh Racha, or you will be disappointed. Koh Racha is an island that is calm and quiet. The beach has a floating docking pier for small boats to anchor on.
