Surin Island (Ko Surin Nuea)

South Western Thailand, off cost of Pang Nga Province, 160km from Phuket

Thailand boasts over 1,400 islands but majority are uninhabited hence popularity of the habited ones. The largest is Phuket and most popular but if you seek to be closer to nature, un-spoil environments and less crowd, there are still several to consider. 

Our Thailand Packages bring you to great places that even the locals are fond and enjoy.  When visiting these places, you also experience the beautiful Thai culture, food and hospitality, the very elements that make Thailand a top sought after destination.


Surin Islands is about 4.71 sq km, about 7 times the size of Sentosa Island in Singapore. It consists of two islands, Ko Surin Nuea and Ko Surin Tai, separated by a channel about 660 ft wide that becomes dry at low tide. It is home to just a couple hundred natives known as Moken or Morgan people ('sea people or sea gypsies).  Crystal clear waters and abundant sea life are not the only attractions, there are many species of birds and faunas not found elsewhere.

Local sea transportation is available from Krabi, Khao Lak, Koh Tai and Phuket ranging from 1.5 to 2.5 hours. Day tours are available but visitors seeking a better island experience should consider the overnight packages​. There is an arrival fee of Baht500 per person valid for 5 days to the National Parks for maintenance of the islands.


Ideal snorkeling spots around the Surin Islands for either beginners or advanced snorkeling. Surin Islands are a haven of peace large schools of reef fish and for ocean giants such as whale sharks and manta rays or napoleon which can occasionally be observed flying majestically in the blue. Koh Surin is also frequented by sea turtles which are often spotted and come to lay down their eggs on the white sandy beaches framing the islands.

up to 4 species of turtles can be spotted especially between between February to April alongside mantle rays and wahle sharks. Lots of other sea life like Kuhl's maskrays, giant morays, boxfishes, trevallies, puffers, butterflyfishes and many more are around  all year.


Two camp sites with tents or private air-con bungalows, managed by the National Forest Parks and available for visitors overnight stays.

Tents come with sleeping tent, mat, pillows and towels while air conditioned bungalows  that can accommodate up to 4 persons offer private room and toilet facilities. Bungalows are very limited so visitors are advised to book early especially during the high seasons.

Accommodation are basic but your purpose of visiting the islands is for its nature which no luxury can replace. A night on the beach, by the sea with view of the open skies  would be a memorable experience.
