Dive at Similan Islands
Dive at Similan Islands, Phuket.
The Similan Islands are a 24 kilometre long chain of nine islands and several rocks, located 70 kilometres off the Andaman coast in western Thailand’s Phang-Nga province. Together with the two solitary islands of Koh Bon and Koh Tachai they form the Mu Ko Similan National Park, established in 1982 as Thailand’s 43rd National Park. The surrounding sea is regarded as one of the best areas in the world for diving and snorkelling.
Fringed with pure white beaches, and home to Thailands least spoiled and most spectacular diving sites, the Similan Islands are a beautiful place to spend a beach holiday or to swim in the tropical sunshine. From the underwater boulders of Christmas Point, the marine life around Elephant Rock and the breathtaking East of Eden, the Similans also boast a high diversity of dive sites.
