Similan Islands – the Clearest Turquoise Water in Thailand

The Similan Islands (Mu Koh Similan) is a group of 9 islands in the Andaman Sea, located 65 km off the coastline of Phang Nga province. The islands belong to the Similan National Park, boasting some stunning natural beauty and world-class diving and snorkeling. The area is closed six months per year (15th May – 15th October) to let nature and wildlife recover. A fascinating thing about the Similan Islands is the fact that the landscape with its granite rock formations was formed more than 250 million years ago in the Paleozoic period – a time before the dinosaurs.
