    Swimming in the clear blue water

    by sweetie_inc Updated May 11, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The water is so inviting that I couldn't help but to jump & stay in!

    The water is very cooling eventhough the sun is scorching hot above your head... There are lots of fishes accompanying you while you swim and they are very friendly indeed! You can never miss the school of silver fishes around you..

    I can never get enough swimming here..

    Don't you feel like jumping in? Staying in the water is all I do.. Underwater.. Clean and Clear.. The friendly fishes.. Crystal Clear Water..

    The Small Beach...

    by sweetie_inc Written May 11, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The beach is really very small.. It's only about 200m long... But most of the people come here to snorkel as there are lots of colourful fishes...

    You can just lie on the beach and there are not many people here... Very peaceful and no screaming children for sure...

    One of the thing that you must do!

    Walk to ""Small Beach" which is on the opposite side of the island.. There are lots of beautiful fishes and some pretty corals.. You just have to swim from the beach to snorkel..

    East of Eden

    by icyjo24 Updated Dec 29, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The East of Eden is located on the east coast of Island No 7, Koh Payu. This is a good spot for divers or snorkellers to see nemos (clownfish) and turtles. I saw a lot of nemos here. However as the water is rather deep, diving would be a better option to see them upclose. However, I didn't see turtles here but my guide and a few other snorkellers did see turtles here. I was still on the dinghy when my guide saw one below.. arghh!!! My only consolation is to see two octopuses here.

    There are many beautiful rock formations around many of the islands. Usually, its good to snorkel or dive near these spots. Near the spot where this picture is taken, there are beautiful coral gardens.

    Longest Beach in Similan Islands

    by icyjo24 Written Dec 21, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the longest white sandy beach which is located on Ko Hu-Yong (Island No 1). However, only snorkelling is allowed near the beach but snorkellers are not allowed to get onto the beach as the island is protected by the Navy. The beach is also a place where turtles lay their eggs.

    Nicobar Pigeon

    If you are lucky, you will sight the rare blue Nicobar Pigeon that is native to the islands. We sighted one hopping around Ko Mieng. Its rather difficult to get a good picture of the pigeon as it keeps on moving around.

    Kuerk Bay

    by icyjo24 Updated Dec 21, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kuerk Bay is a beautiful white beach for relaxing in the largest island, Island No 8 or Ko Similan. You can climb up the rocks which are known as 'Sailing Rocks' or "Donald Duck Rocks' as the rock at the top resembles the shape of cap of Donald Duck. At the end of the climb, you will be able to get a nice view of the bay and the surroundings. If you are lucky, you will be able to witness an awesome sunset here but as the weather was rather gloomy and cloudy that day, we didn't get to see one. What a waste!
