If you don't want to travel far by boat, Coral Island is the perfect choice. As the name suggests, there are several sheltered reefs close to the beach and teeming with fish.
Expect to see angelfish, moorish idol and sergeant major fish, which come straight to the boat and will escort you whilst snorkeling on the reef.
The beaches on the island can be quite popular during the day, but we take you to the best snorkelling around the quiet bays and reefs. Read More...
A beautiful island surrounded by a white sandy beach and a large shallow reef. The reef here is probably the most diverse in the area. Corals and fish can be seen just a few metres from the beach stretching out a further 100 metres to a depth of no more than three metres. It's very suitable for young children as they can see the fish in very shallow water.
Also for experienced snorkelers as the marine life is very diverse and includes anemones, large clams and the timid black tip shark. Another attraction are the dolphins - frequent visitors to the island. Read More...

Racha Yai Island, with its crystal-clear waters, offers great snorkeling and powdery white beaches.
There are several reefs around the island where you can see colourful reef fish, and sometimes octopus (although they are difficult to spot amongst coral). Large puffer fish can also be found around these reefs along with trumpet fish and butterfly fish.
Racha makes a very colourful snorkeling experience with choices of shallow and deep reefs, all of which promise an excellent underwater experience. Read More...
