This year may be the first time since the pandemic started that you can travel freely during the holiday season to enjoy time with friends and family. Why not celebrate this freedom in style and tour the islands around Phuket, Samui or Singapore aboard your own private luxury yacht hire from Boat Lagoon Yachting?
A private yacht charter in Phuket, Thailand exploring the islands and the dramatic beauty of Phang Nga Bay is the ideal way to celebrate the holidays while taking in the fresh sea air. After almost three years of lockdowns and quarantines, you deserve it.
These islands should be seen by everyone at least once in their life. Why not experience them in the comfort of a luxurious private yacht equipped with everything you need, and staffed by an experienced crew? We’ll tell you about some of the many islands that await you once you board your luxury yacht and set sail.
Phang Nga Bay
This is ground zero for some of the most dramatic and spectacular scenery in Thailand. The bay borders the eastern side of Phuket and extends as far south as Krabi. It’s home to many islands that may look familiar to movie lovers. That’s because the islands have served as the sets and backgrounds to many blockbuster movies over the years, including Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Beach, The Pirates of the Caribbean movies, The Hangover Part II, and the James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun. The Bond film created a familiar landmark from one of the islands that has since become known as “James Bond Island.”
Phi Phi Islands
Six islands comprise the Phi Phi Islands, but most visitors head for either Koh Phi Phi Don or Koh Phi Phi Le, as they’re the two largest. The islands lie roughly halfway between Phuket and Krabi below Phang Nga Bay. The only island in the group that’s inhabited is Koh Phi Phi Don, which has several excellent resorts and a vibrant nightlife.
Maya Bay on Koh Phi Phi Ley will forever be a major tourist attraction because the dramatic cliffs and turquoise waters were featured in the movie The Beach. There are lots of places to anchor and explore the beaches around the islands, but Maya Bay itself is restricted to preserve the coral and sea life of the bay.
Krabi is known for its dramatic, soaring cliffs accented with tropical foliage. Ao Nang Beach offers a great place to anchor and explore the many cafes and nightspots along the beaches of Krabi. Around the corner from Ao Nang Beach are Tonsai and Railay Beach, which can only be reached by boat. Anchor off these beaches and watch the rock climbers scaling the cliffs directly overhead.
For those who just want to go to an island near Phuket, anchor, and spend the day basking on deck and playing in the water, the Racha Islands are the perfect destination. Just an hour south of Phuket aboard your luxury charter yacht, you’ll be able to discover the waters surrounding these islands that are known for their clarity. They attract beginner and advanced snorkellers and scuba divers eager to explore the undersea life of Phuket. At the end of the day, it’s just a short trip back to Boat Lagoon Yachting, making it the ideal one-day cruise destination.
