Off the coast of Rawaï, Koh Lon Island is one of the top destinations in Phuket. After about twenty minutes aboard a “long-tail” boat - a small traditional boat, you will land on this wild and hardly touristic island. Walk along the coast and explore its numerous beaches. You will find creeks with crystal-clear water where you can swim. You will also enjoy a rich and authentic excursion to the small fishing village of the island.
Located in the northern part of the island, Sirinat National Park is one of the best destinations in Phuket for exploring the natural environment of Thailand. White sand beaches extend for 13 kilometres without a break. You will surely enjoy hiking on the sand at the heart of this preserved natural environment. The popular destination here is Mai Khao Beach. The coastline is bordered by a forest that has a mixture of Australian pines, morning glory and Indian almond. On the other hand, giant sea turtles also come to lay their eggs on Mai Khao Beach from November to February. Unfortunately, there are fewer and fewer of them and it is for this reason that a refuge for turtles and an educational centre were opened a few years ago. Make sure you see these majestic animals when you visit Mai Khao Beach.
