Famed for its sea mountains that rise out of the turquoise waters, Phang Nga Bay is certainly a highlight. This superb anchorage, which lies between the northeastern side of Phuket and Krabi Province, is home to some of the most spectacular cruising destinations found in Southeast Asia. Lying on the comfortable sundeck you can relax while admiring sights of dramatic beauty. The more adventurous travellers can take the ship’s tender out, or hop in one of the kayaks to explore secluded bays and hidden coves with white-sand-beaches, beyond which are caves and beautiful inland lakes.
Southern Phuket is gifted with an astonishing number of islands that are dotted around its coasts. From tiny rocks to the inhabitable larger chunks of land emerging from Andaman Sea, islands – and above all, tropical islands – have always occupied a special place in our collective imagination. The sensation of freedom, of escaping from the crowd, and the exotic beauty they conjure, are just some of the reasons why these islands are so popular. The clear waters are ideal for snorkelling, as they are calm, balmy and bursting with brilliant marine life.
