The Similan Islands National Park is a
series of strikingly beautiful granite
and jungle islands with some stunning
beaches and great undersea diversity.
Diving here normally originates from
Phuket and is done by live aboards running anywhere from two-day to twoweek trips. The water clarity and healthy
reefs make these islands the focal point
of regional diving.
Varied and full of color, the southern
islands are numbered one through nine
and host a number of live aboards that
launch from the western Thai coast.
These numerous islands are balanced
by the large northern islands of Ko
Bon, a beautiful piece of limestone,
and Ko Tachai, which has attractive
sand beaches and some good offshore
dives.
Since the tsunami, the eastern coasts
have been the favored aspect of these
islands to dive. The terrain features
stunning hard corals, soft corals, sea
fans and immense coral heads, and they
range from shallow to quite deep, and
from no currents to pretty brisk ones.
An extremely photogenic place, this is
where many of the signature Thailand

diving images are made, especially
those with wide angle vistas and big
gorgonian sea fans.
Fish are also well-represented, with
anything from mantas and leopard
sharks to ornate ghost pipefish, blue
spotted jawfish, Andaman sweet lips
and nudibranchs to be found.
