Khai Islands half day trip (afternoon)

Short and sweet and great fun for all the family. You can stand ankle deep in the clear shallow water and be surrounded by fish, it’s like standing in a giant aquarium. This tour can all year round. The islands are close to Phuket and sheltered so when other destinations have rough sea Koh Khai is flat. This trip visits two small islands, Koh Khai Nui and Koh Khai Nok.

  1. Hi,

    I am looking to do a half day tour on 1st December, does the coral beach tour include snorkelling?

    1. It is possible to snorkel from the beach at Coral Island. You will see some small fish and corals. It is not the best snorkeling because it is so close to Phuket but if you have never tried snorkeling before it is nice. Mask and snorkel are provided.

        1. I would say the best place foe snorkeling in Thailand is the Surin Islands but it’s not available for a half day trip from Phuket, it’s too far away. For half day you can go to Khai Islands or Coral Island. Which is more suitable will depend on where your hotel is located. If you are staying in south Phuket Coral Island is closer.
