Kayaking and longtail boats
Kayaking is available in Kata Noi Beach for around 200 baht an hour. If you prefer a quiet spot, head south towards Nui Beach where the coastline is relatively untouched. You can hire a local boat and go snorkelling as there are excellent reefs at the southern end of Kata Beach and also by Poo Island, just offshore. Longtail boats can also be rented for around 600 baht per hour, depending on the number of passengers and your negotiating skills.
