Itinerary 1+2+4. Big Circle
Recommended 9 nights 10 days
Most people on a 7-10 day Phuket sailing holiday will combine all these itineraries and do a large circle around Phang Nga Bay to the east of Phuket. This provides enough time to enjoy the amazing scenery and fantastic water sports in the region so you get the best of three routes without having to compromise.
1. PHANG NGA BAY
You can cross through the heart of the bay to Pan Yi fishing village. An incredible sea village island made of houses atop stilts, complete with homes, shops, schools, mosque and even a market. After exploring Pan Yi you can visit at the North end of Phang Nga Bay: The James Bond Island which was made famous by appearing in the James Bond film "The Man with the Golden Gun". Phang Nga Bay is one of the Natural Wonders of the World.
Heading South, you approach Krabi and the beach at Ao Nang Bay. There you will find many resorts, shops, restaurants and nightlife spots. Just to the South is the world famous Railey Beach, protected from road access by rock walls on either side. Here you can do some kayaking or rock climbing. Further South the place is very good for diving and snorkeling.
3. KOH PHI PHI
Spectacular cliffs rising vertically out of the clear blue sea, idyllic tropical beaches, and lagoons surrounded by rock walls, have made Phi Phi Islands famous all over the world. You can snorkel in warm turquoise water in secluded bays, see the famous Maya bay, used in Leonardo di Caprio's hit movie 'The Beach' and head ashore to enjoy a beachside massage. In the evening you can eat and relax on the Yacht or head ashore and enjoy the restaurants and nightlife of the island.
4. KOH LANTA
Koh Lanta lies on the West coast of Andaman Sea in between Krabi and Phi Phi Island. Stunning scenery, fantastic white sandy beaches, coastlines have more than 70 small islands and plenty with forest, coral reefs and under water life. The geography of the island is typically mangroves, coral rimmed beaches, and rugged tree covered hills. Lanta is far away from the main towns of Phuket and Krabi, and offers a far more peaceful version of Thailand. In fact, so peaceful that 1 day might not be enough!
5. KOH MUK
Koh Muk is mostly occupied by sea facing towering cliffs to the west. On the east side of the island is a village of fishers who have still maintained their ways of life as islanders. On the island to the west is Tham Morakot, a sea cave. With light from the outside, emerald water can be seen inside the cave.
6. KOH ROK NOK
Brilliant white-sand beaches, crystal-clear water, expansive coral reefs and meter-long monitor lizards: welcome to Koh Rok. Protected as part of Mu Ko Lanta National Park, these gorgeous twin islands boast some of the finest snorkeling in Thailand's Andaman Sea. Roughly the same size, they sit only 250 meters apart, with hard and soft coral covering the channel in between.
7. KOH RACHA
West of Phi Phi is Racha Islands, a true tropical paradise 12km South of Phuket. The waters are crystal clear and the sandy beaches are snowy white. The waters around Racha Islands are best known as excellent diving and snorkeling daytrip destinations. The other large bay, Ao Siam, is a pretty place where lonely strolls in solitude are possible.
8. KOH LIPE (BUTANG)
Koh Lipe is a small island in the Adang Rawi Archipelago of the Andaman Sea, in Satun Province of
southwest Thailand, close to the Malaysian border. Koh Lipe is on the border of the Tarutao National Marine Park and is directly south of the larger islands Koh Adang and Koh Rawi, and about 50 km from the island of Koh Tarutao. It was originally settled by a group of sea gypsies originally from Malaysia, known as the Urak Lawoi’ people.
Similan Islands National Park was established after a one-year exploration by the forestry department. The park is an archipelago consisting of nine islands name Koh Hin Pousar, Koh Bayu, Koh Similan, Koh Payu, Koh Miang (two asjoining islands), Koh Payan, Koh Payang and Koh Huyong.. Recently, the park was expanded to include two remote islands name Koh Bon and Koh Tachai.
10. KHAI NOK
Near the main island of Phuket, there are numerous small islands off the east coast that can be explored on your final day. It will be temption to see them all but you will have to make a choice. Maybe do some snorkeling at Coral Island, or feeding the fishes from the beach at Khai Nok. You often see dolphins and occasionally whales in this area so always keep your camera handy to capture unforgettable moments of your cruise around Phuket. On the last day you will disembark at Yacht Haven Marina.
