  • Have visited this island after my trip to Phuket and came into raptures. Have lived in the glow Elixir resort and get a bungalow right on the beach, there on the island of little (Nothing) was going on. Beautiful the island on foot to explore mangrove forests, secluded beaches and small villages. The people there are mega friendly and helpful and the nature that is simply indescribable. Even though I had bad weather I don't want to miss this stop and will go back there

  • We have been in the month of October, and although the time not has accompanied us because we caught the monsoons, we have been able to explore the island on bike and it has been amazing. It's all very wild, very little tourism and even if that sometimes there is a little dirty places also gives it a special charm. We found some beautiful beaches where we were completely alone and the hotel where we stayed (Santhiya) has been the most beautiful hotel where we have never hosted. Although it is not very touristy there are many places where to eat, where to rent a bike, where to organize excursions to other islands.

  • No mass tourism! What a joy to discover an island that lives at his pace without the influx of tourists. No shopping here. This explains can be this; Trip fefectuee with Celtour. Good delivery we were just 4 with a french-speaking guide. The island is inhabited, many rubber plantations where the harvest of latex. We had a very nice day

  • A quiet island with just about one major road, a few resorts, some restaurants, shops, and motorbike rentals generally clustered nearby, friendly people, and beautiful beaches and surroundings. Ferries between Phuket and between Krabi year-round. Excursions are available from independent and resort associated operators, particularly during high season (roughly Nov-Feb). No diving at other times, and snorkeling trips are heavily weather dependent. Otherwise, convenient access to local islands, and free from heavy tourist traffic. Inexpensive compared to other areas during the low season, but reportedly about 3x more during high season. Most amenities of the larger islands are available.
  • The island escape from the busy town but just few minutes from the mainland & very peaceful island.
  • Remove the vessel. Best private island so beautiful. Buy water at a price 10 baht outside Island EP-glad.
