An unspoiled paradise. The fantastic coral reefs, different species of fish and white sand beaches invite you to enjoy the beautiful nature. The Surin Islands are truly perfect for snorkeling, relaxing and swimming.
The Surin Islands are 5 dreamlike islands, at about 100 km north of Khao Lak. They are not as known as the Similan Islands, but in no way inferior. Known for its colourful coral reefs and its living underwater world it fascinates many divers and even while snorkeling one can see a lot of the natural beauty.
The islands abundantly covered with vegetation and surrounded by turqouise water are an almost untouched paradise. Fantastic coral reefs in combination with various types of fish and white sandy beaches invite you to stay.
The Surin Islands are truly perfect for snorkeling, swimming and relaxing. Therefore we have to snorkel stops of 45 minutes each and some more time on one of the a bit more hidden beaches. We will reach it by longtail boat, to enjoy a tasty Thai lunch in the sun.
As the Surin islands are the only inhabited archipelago, you will get the chance to visit the small fishing village with original wooden huts and own culture.
Traditionally the Moken, a group of sea-faring people used to live on their houseboats at least half of a year. Living together in a village on land was only temporarily common during monsoon season.
Now they started to settle down, but they still own an impressive knowledge related to underwater hunting and diving.
Your tour guide will give you some interesting information according to island life and if you like to you can buy one of the beautifully manufactured souvenirs as a memory of another good day in Thailand.
