    Dusk of Honeymoon Bay

    by icyjo24 Written Dec 21, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are lucky, the dusk off Honeymoon Bay will be beautiful just like this picture. Our liveaboard boat moored off Honeymoon Bay for the night. We will pretty unlucky that evening too as the lights on our boat couldn't work for an hour or so. We had dinner in the dark and some helpful boats nearby shine their lights in our boat's direction. Luckily, our wonderful captain manage to fix the lights in an hour or so. He was very apologetic about what happened.

    Honeymoon Bay

    Beautiful Honeymoon Bay

    Honeymoon Bay is also located on Ko Mieng, on the opposite side of the island as Princess Bay. Honeymoon Bay can be reached on a short jungle trek from Princess Bay. This beach is rather secluded and beautiful. As the name suggests, perfect for a honeymoon.

    Princess Bay

    Princess Bay

    Princess Bay is the main beach on Island No 4 or Ko Mieng. It is one of the slightly more crowded beach among the islands. This is also where the National Park Headquarter is located. There are some bungalows operated by the National Park Authority on this island. Camping is also allowed for a fee. The beach area is named Princess Bay as the Thai Princess plays an active role in marine conservation. If you are lucky, you may see the rare blue Nicobar Pigeon and the flying fox on this island.

    Snorkelling Around the Islands

    by icyjo24 Written Dec 21, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I went on a liveaboard that was specialized in snorkelling. The liveaboard snorkelling tour is operated by Poseidon Bungalows near Khao Lak. So far, this is the only one I could find that specializes in snorkelling. Some liveaboard diving boats also allow snorkellers on board too if they are not full. The cost is 6500 baht for a 3 days liveaboard snorkelling tour on board Duang Ta. A liveaboard diving trip would cost much more.
    Most of the spots that we went are rather deep so I felt that a diving trip would have been awesome. However, there are a few islands, island 1 and 2 that are closed to divers and opened only for snorkelling. We went there on the third day when the weather was the most perfect. Those are really beautiful spots. I would love to be back again.

    climb up Donald Duck rock for a great view

    by gabyne Written Mar 19, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    view from the Donald Duck rock

    Most boats anchor within the so-called "Donald Duck bay" over night or for some hours. It's great to get onto the island, walk on the empty beaches, go snorkelling or climb up the big rock to have a great view around.

    But be careful - although there are some ropes to hold onto, it's sometimes slippery and quite dangerous. And a bit exhausting, too...
