Secret Islands For Your Next Holiday in Thailand




"Secret Islands For Your Next Holiday in Thailand"," You can relax on amazing beaches, hike large mountains, dive impressive coral reefs, visit ancient historical sites, explore great caves, and hang out in energetic and fast paced cities.
 However, Thailand has hundreds of tropical islands to choose from.
 They wouldn't be popular if they weren't good.
  Here are seven islands in Thailand that are relatively not very touristy:

Ko Lipe is a small island located in the southern Thai province of Satun and is situated in the Andaman Sea.
 The name ""Ko Lipe"" means paper island in the local Sea Gypsy language.
 There are coral reefs for diving right off the island, white sand beaches, inexpensive food, and nice locals.
 Avoid the holiday season when the crowds peak.
 Ko Tarutao is the main island and is where the park headquarters is located.
 There is just the park's canteen and a small store that is only open until 8pm.
 For those looking for a cheap and rustic island in Thailand, this place is it.
 Situated in the east near the Cambodian border, it's Thailand's second largest island after Phuket.
 With its chain of white sandy coves and beaches, pristine rain forests, abundant wildlife, coral reefs, high mountain peaks, waterfalls, and great nightlife, Ko Chang is one of Thailand's most sought after holiday destinations.


Surin National Park is found some 60 km off the west coast of Phang Nga province.
"" Surin Nuea is also home to a community of around 150 Moken, or ""sea gypsies"", who have settled there on a semi-permanent basis for several decades.


The Similan Islands are composed of nine granite islands washed by a clear blue tropical ocean and blessed with some of the world's finest beaches.
 Boats entering the Similan Islands have to follow strict rules imposed and controlled by the national park officials, have to use the moorings prepared by the national park and use closed waste water systems to avoid any pollution.
 It's popular with a more relaxed crowd than nearby Ko Phi Phi: more walking on the beach and watching the sunset than drinking and dancing.


Ko Mak is one of Thailand's best kept treasures.
 Amongst 10,000 palm trees, there's a temple, three fishing community villages, rubber plantations, and two uninhabited beaches.
 Koh Mak is the perfect place to relax, explore, calm your mind and soothe your senses.
 Let's keep the secret between us though so the islands stay that way for as long as possible, otherwise these great islands will be ruined at a quick pace
