Phang Nga Bay National Park is a stunning cruising destination with hundreds of Islands and huge limestone cliff formations magically bursting out of the shallow waters. Situated 22nm North from our base in Ao Chalong.
The most famous landmark in the bay is Koh Tapu, better know as James Bond Island. It was here that scenes from the movie ‘The Man with the golden gun’ were filmed. The journey from Chalong means we pass Koh Hong, a fantastic island where it is possible to kayak into a stunning internal emeraled green Lagoon, and also Koh Panak an island with sea caves, which at low tide are also possible to explore during low tide.
After exploring James Bond Island it is possible to travel further north to Koh Panyee, aboard a rented Longtail boat, and visit the sea gypsy village. In the bay there are a number of smaller islands with their small beaches, which a good for swimming, however the most popular option is Koh Naka, which is visited easiest on the return journey to Chalong
Phang Nga bay is situated between Phuket and Krabi province on the mainland, meaning it is sheltered from the seasonal monsoon winds making it an ideal cruising destination all year through.
