On a Sailing trip by longtail boat from Koh Samui to Koh Pha-Ngan


Alexander keeping an eye on the coastline

There are plenty of boats and ferries going over to the numerous small and large islands in the area. Among others, a lot of people go to visit the island of Koh Pha-Ngan which lies north of Samui and takes around 30 minutes to get there by boat.

In general Koh Pha-Ngan is even more peaceful than Koh Samui, unless you happen to be there when one of the famous full moon parties is taking place. These parties attract hundreds of people who listen to loud music and dance on the beach all night long. We decided to skip the full-moon party as we had the kids with us!

The beach where we were taken to by boat

Instead we chose a delightful trip by longtail boat, where we visited a couple of different tiny islands and did some snorkelling around them.

Food at the beach

This was a wonderful trip where we were served a traditional Thai meal (of roasted rice with chicken and vegetables) on the beach. On one of the islands there was only one resort, so this could be a very attractive option for someone looking for a complete rest with very few people around.

The fish were fed and came really close to the surface.
