Maiton Island (also called Honeymoon Island) is located 9 kilometres away from the south coast of Phuket. The most convenient and budget-conscious way is to go there by speedboat group tour.
The trip starts at 8.30 am when the driver picks you up from your hotel. Since the island is not that far, pick up time isn’t very early compared to Phi Phi or Khao Lak national park. The van will take you to the Port of Phuket where you will be registered and assigned to your boat. After that you have some time to get a snack or light breakfast before we leave. Around 10 am the boat leaves to Maiton Island, and takes just 15-20 minutes so you won’t get travel tired and will be fresh to enjoy your day.
After we arrive you will have around one hour for snorkelling and other activities on the beach and in the water. You can relax under the palm trees or trek around the island. The nature of Honeymoon Island is still untouched by mass tourism, so you will fall in love with this piece of land in the middle of the Andaman Sea.
This archipelago includes a few more gems – Racha and Coral Islands. So after you finish with Maiton we will move forward to explore the other two. Around 11.30 we will stop at Coral Island which is famous for its marine life. As you can see from its name, its main attractions are the numerous coral reefs surrounding the island. Here you also will have plenty of activities to enjoy: banana boat, snorkelling, beach activities etc.
At 12.30 we will serve you lunch so you can chill for an hour and enjoy the relaxing tropical vibes.
Our last stop will be Racha Island, which is a very popular spot for snorkelling. Here you can see famous clownfish (aka Nemo) and other underwater creatures.
Around 5 pm we will be heading back to Phuket.
