Visited here as part of a dive tour and reefs were pretty good although a LOT of other divers in the water at Red, White or Green Reefs that made it very crowded. The beach and access to island are very busy especially during the...More

Touristy island with petty nice views from the viewpoint (the best imo). Really expensive eating or drinking there and there's not much to do except sunbathing and having a bath. This is not the best place for snorkelling.

Check with songserm or lomphraya as far as boats back to Surat Thani. Honestly your best bet is to go to any travel agency and ask their advice. Super helpful.
