What to Do?
Swim and snorkel surrounded by amazing limestone mountain islands in turquoise water. Or/and go on a Kayak trip and eat a well deserved dinner afterwards on a beautiful beach. Many tour operators include meals and refreshments in their tour packages.
When to Go?
It is usually ok to go here at any time of the year as the temperature is high year round on the islands of the Suratthani province. The monsoon or rain season is normally occurring from September until November, but usually there are many days with sunshine and blue sky in this period as well.
