Snorkeling Spots to explore in Phang-nga
The province is on the west side of the Malay Peninsula, and includes the many islands of the Phang Nga Bay. The most famous one is the so-called James Bond Island, a needle formed limestone rock in the sea. The Similan Islands and Surin Islands, two of Thailand's main diving destinations, are also part of Phang Nga Province.
The Surin Islands are part of Mu Koh Surin National Park, located some 60 km off the west coast of Phang Nga Province and 100 km north of the Similans. It's an archipelago of 5 islands: Koh Surin Nuea, Koh Surin Tai, Koh Ri, Koh Khai, and Koh Klang. Excellent diving, snorkelling, hiking and game fishing are why most travellers come to the Surin Islands. Those hoping to find a quiet refuge from tourist traps and urban centres will be delighted with the islands' relatively untouched settings.
