Swaying palms, coral reefs, breathtaking rock pinnacles, shimmering emerald seas and charming villages are just some of the attractions that await in Thailand. A sailing holiday in Thailand is a superb option for those seeking an adventure in an exotic and beautiful place in a world away from the hustle and bustle of a busy life. The best time of year is between November and February, when the temperature is 23-33°C.

Phuket

Phuket Island is a little paradise. Located 867 kilometres south of Bangkok, it is Thailand’s largest island and a favourite destination for thousands of tourists from all over the world.

The backdrop to this watery landscape is the green hills and coconut palm forests. The variety of the landscape is the main asset of the place, which alternates between rocky headlands and long, wide crescent-shaped beaches, as well as limestone cliffs and hills covered with tropical forests. Mai Khao is the longest beach in Phuket. There must be something special about it if huge turtles come here every year to lay their eggs.

 

Phang Nga Bay

Phang Nga Bay, only an hour from Phuket, is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The view of karst islands rising hundreds of metres out of the sea is a sight that cannot fail to impress even the most seasoned traveller.

Koh Pak Bia

Koh Pak Bia is a small island located near Phi Phi. The unspoilt nature of this isolated corner and the picturesque beach attract tourists and locals to the island.

The beach is large, but not very suitable for swimming, as the bottom is covered with coral fragments. The island is popular with snorkellers and divers. The underwater world of Koh Pak Bia is bright and diverse.

Ao Nang

One only has to reach Ao Nang Beach to be enchanted by the beauty of a beach that, despite having become one of the country’s most famous and popular destinations, has managed to retain its beauty in this magnificent corner of paradise. The waters are shallow, making it suitable even for children, and boast enchanting shades of light and shade created by the limestone rocks emerging from the sea.

In addition, the limestone cliffs overlooking the sea offer popular rock climbing walls

Archipelago of Phi Phi

The Phi Phi archipelago consists of six islands, mainly characterised by limestone cliffs and rocks. Some offer spectacular beaches and coral reefs.

The archipelago is characterised by limestone mountains and fairly high hills with protruding rocks; it has some wonderful bays such as the famous Maya Bay. The beaches are exceptional and the platform of coral reefs with branching corals stretches from north to south. 

Koh Racha 

The two Racha islands, Racha Yai and Racha Noi, about 12 km south of Phuket, are known to be perfect destinations for diving and snorkelling enthusiasts. 

The larger of the two islands is Koh Racha Yai (Big Racha), whose most beautiful beach with its characteristic white sand and crystal-clear sea lies on the west side of the island, in the middle of two horse-shaped valleys.

The highest point to enjoy a panoramic view of the whole island is on the hilltop south of the bay. Koh Racha Yai is another tropical paradise in Thailand, with no roads or cars, just beaches, palm trees and a coral reef.

The island of Koh Racha Noi consists mostly of rocky hills rather than beaches, the formation of which is due to the constant accumulation of coral stones. This makes the island more suitable for fishing than swimming. 

Archipelago of Koh Kai

It is part of the Poda Island Archipelago in the waters of the Andaman Sea and is quite small, but its formation is peculiar.

Limestone rock is present almost everywhere in the area and this is why the beaches on Poda Island are white.

In addition, there are numerous coconut palms on the round surface of the island, which are often used by travellers as natural shelters from the sun! Its underwater life attracts divers from all over the world.
