Snorkelling Paradise at Koh Hey
at Koh Hey
Just a short speed boat ride away, an oasis of pure relaxation, fun and lots of activities await.
Koh Hey, better known as Coral Island, has maintained a pretty pristine atmosphere with
white-powered sandy beaches and turquoise waters.
WHY THIS TOUR?
Serenity awaits when exchanging the shores of Phuket for a more off-shore tropical experience. For years, Koh Hey remains a perfect island hideaway when in need for a calmer climate, new ways to see the world beneath the surface of the Andaman Sea, and to capture the immense variety of beach galore that surrounds Phuket.
A short speed boat south-east of Phuket’s Chalong Bay and Koh Hey welcomes you with its turquoise waters, sugar-white beaches, and it relaxing atmosphere wherever you may drape your beach towel. As the unofficial name implies, Koh Hey is all about coral and no better way than to don a snorkelling mask and watch the world below sea level.

Upon arrival at the boat pier, you will board a speed boat which will bring you in no time to a small paradise off the coast of Phuket. Hey Island is an island located off Phuket’s south coast and is very well-known for its coral reef that it aptly received its name ‘Coral Island’. In addition to the splendid reefs there are two fine beaches on the north and west. Hey island is part of a marine preserve, but various watersports, and diving are all available.
During the day, you will have the chance to simply chill and relax on the beach or take a dip in the ocean or join the fun. Lots of activities are at your disposal (charges may apply) such as inflatable ‘banana boat’, parasailing, scuba diving and sea walking. Don’t forget that the island is rated very high for its snorkelling opportunities by those who have been there and enjoyed the underwater world. A Thai lunch is included on Koh Hey at a local restaurant.
In the afternoon, we head back to Phuket, where your driver will bring you back to your booked hotel on the Pearl of the Andaman. Note that conditions and surcharges apply for transfers from and to regions outside the assigned regions. Arrival at your hotel will be at around 4 pm.
