The Similan Islands are one of the top ten diving destinations in the world. They are only open from November to April. The period from December to May is the season when leopard sharks appear. Similan means “nine” in Malay, and the Similan Islands refers to nine islands. The waters around these islands are the best for diving in Thailand. For licensed divers, a few days staying on a boat and diving will no doubt be the favorite way to experience the area. The sand on the islands’ beaches is fine and soft, and shoes are not permitted to be worn in order to protect the environment and maintain a healthy ecological balance.

Similan Islands 💕😊🏖🌊
We arrived at Sailing rock which is the landmark of "Similan sea" at island 8 (Similand island) to relax and swim at beautiful Donald Duck bay (Ao Kuak). The sand of the Similan islands is named as the whitest sand in Thailand.
We had a wonderful time in island 4 (Koh Miang), and islands 5 & 6. We snorkled and appreciated the beauty of the underwater world, viewing fishes and corals with different forms and sizes.
The Similan Islands are found in the Andaman Sea off the west coast of Thailand, namely in Lam Kaen, Thai Mueang District, Phang-nga. Eleven islands make up the Similan archipelago. The Mu Koh Similan National Park, which spans 140 square kilometers, contains all of the islands.
The islands are ideal for those who enjoy diving and exploring lonely and barren locations teeming with wildlife. Koh Similan, the largest island, is perhaps the finest site to begin your journey. All of the Similan Islands are encircled by crystal clear shallow waters teeming with fascinating rock formations and beautiful coral reefs. In Thailand and the surrounding, the marine life around the islands is unrivaled.
OMG. I have never seen anything like this. The Similan islands are the real paradise. 5 days on liveabroad diving experince are the highlight of my 2019. I have met amazing divers on the boat who tought me many things and they are very friendly people. I have to go back. I promise myself. #merrychristmas
