Similan Island


Similan Island
 
Similan Islands (Koh Similan) is a group of islands located approximately 100 kilometers north-west of Phuket. There are a total of nine granite islands covered with tropical jungle and surrounded by chalk white beaches and crystal clear blue water, that offers some of the best diving in Thailand and the world. There is a big variation in the underwater environment to be found here that are not offered on any other places around the world.
 
Similan Island National Park has been rated first by the U. S. publication "Skin Diving" of the top ten dive sites in the world. The Similan Islands in the heart of the Andaman Sea are indeed unparallel in their exotic beauty. Similan is really the Malaysian word for nine, as there are nine islands in the Similan group: Koh Bangu, Koh Similan, Hin Huwagralok, Koh Payu, Koh Ha, Koh Hok, Koh Miang, Koh Payan, Koh Payang, and Koh Huyong.
