Discover the stunning landscape around Koh Phangan! This island is located next to Koh Samui and is known for its laidback atmosphere. It is much less developed than Koh Samui, which makes it the perfect location to shoot some pictures of the surroundings. It also has some secluded bays and small islands left where snorkeling is still good. Have a look at the beauty of Koh Phangan and enjoy the crystal clear waters from the Chantara Junk boat!
We head to Koh Ma, which is a small island north of Koh Phangan. It’s actually connected to the mainland by a small stretch of sand. Here we stop for some snorkeling. The water here is crystal clear and you can enjoy the underwater world here. We provide snorkeling equipment (masks). You can just jump in and check it out! Make sure you don’t touch any of the coral, or feed any fish, as we want to preserve the beauty of it!
