Hong Island travel pictures

Day trip to Hong Island

This idyllic tropical island can only be reached by boat as staying on Hong Island is not allowed. It is not too far away from Ao Nang and other places and booking a boat on a day tour to get there is easy. Hong island is probably one of the nicest beaches in Thailand as the sand is white and the water is crystal clear. The water near the beach is not very deep and there is tropical fish swimming around making it a good place for snorkeling.

Like any proper tropical island there is growing jungle on the central part of the island with a short path guiding you through it. This path is easy to walk and takes you to the flora and fauna of Hong island. Along the path there is the Tsunami monument which is a broken boat which was forcibly moved inland by the water. Because overnight stays on the island are not allowed ,the amount of tourists here is much less than on the more well known islands. This definitely adds to the tropical island experience. It is easy to join one of the day tours from Ao Nang.

They can also include other stops such as Hong lagoon and the small, but very attractive Lading island which has a very idyllic beach. The boat ride itself is also quit good as you get to see the coast line and see some of the rock formations rising out of the Andaman sea. So, if you want do some great snorkeling or just enjoy the sunshine on a perfect beach, Hong island should be high on your list of places to visit in Thailand.
