Whilst exploring Phuket in itself is remarkable enough, you can also book a day tour for a full ultimate experience. And yes, we would love to recommend Phi Phi Island Maya Bay or Similan island but all those islands is currently closed indefinitely for restoration. Which is a really good idea frin department of national park wildlife and plaint conservation (DNP) regarding marine protected area conservation. Therefore, here are top 3 alternatives, we would recommend if you wanted to visit island near by Phuket:
Home to only a handful of families. Racha island is set only 15 kilometer from Phuket and about 30 minutes by speed boat. Its white soft sand is what attracts tourists to the island. We recommend you visit the famous Patok bay while you’re at it. Patok bay is u-shaped bay with white sand and clear turquoise water offer great swimming spot at Racha island. Kon Kare Bay and Ter Bay a few hundred meters across the island are great beaches and amazing snorkeling place. Diving tours and fishing tours are more on that side of the island due to the abundance of sea life
Known for its cave and lagoons, Phang Nga Bay is characterized by limestone cliffs and rock formations. It is also one of the best places for kayaking. Also James Bond Island in Phang Nga has become an iconic tourist destination with James Bond’s arch-nemesis using the island as a hideout in the 1974 film that immortalized this location forever
Also call “honeymoon private island”, a peaceful private island with an abundance of natural Maiton island is located about 9 km. from south coast of phuket known as koh mai ton. Mai ton natural beautiful and environment has not been disturbed by mass tourism. . Maiton Island is the very place you need to visit for a full retreat, great for swimming, snokelling. The island open from 15 Oct til 15 Ma.
