Sightseeing & Snorkeling
Similan Island – Explore one of the most beautiful islands in the region, organized by Mr. Moo Tours Khao Lak.
Similan Islands (Thai: หมู่ เกาะ สิ มิ ลัน, Mu Ko Similan) is a group of nine islands in the Andaman Sea off the Phang Nga Province in Thailand. Their name is derived from the Malay word “sembilan” (nine). The uninhabited islands, together with two other islands, form the Mu Ko Similan National Park. The sea around the Similan Islands is one of the most beautiful areas in the world for snorkeling and scuba diving. Most of the water surface belongs to the Andaman Sea and thus to the eastern part of the Indian Ocean. The archipelago lies in a 24 km long chain running in north-south direction about 70 km from the coast.
The islands are made of granite, they were formed in the Tertiary (about 65 million years ago) by rising lava. They got their current shape through the effects of Ice Age glaciers and the forces of the sea. Some of the islands have high and steep mountains made of medium-grain biotite-muscovite granite and biotite-hornblende granite. The highest point is 244 meters. The seabed between the islands is on average 60 to 80 meters deep, the ascent to the beaches is different depending on the direction of the compass: in the west of the islands towards the ocean stony, very steep and sloping with boulders and caves, towards the mainland in the east with shallower slopes to large coral gardens and sandbars. The transition to the sea is accordingly: siltless beach bays with very fine, white and clean sand alternate with a wide variety of rock formations. (Source Wikipedia)
The Similan National Park is officially closed from May 15th to October 15th.
