Around Koh Samui

Koh Samui

Koh Samui, an island in the Gulf of Thailand made it’s name 30 years ago when backpackers discovered this idyllic island as a hideaway with white powdery san beaches, rocky bays swaying palm trees and beautiful clear waters with its coral reefs. Today Koh Samui has everything for anyone’s taste and budget to spend some quality time with lots of activities to choose from. Enjoy international fine cuisine, fantastic scenery or just enjoy the relaxed island atmosphere. Koh Samui still has a very exciting coastline with its endless bays and rocky coves to discover by sailing!

Chartering one of our sailing yachts is definitely one of the most satisfying ways of seeing the beauty of this island. We are looking forward to welcoming you on board one of our yachts to make your holiday an unforgettable experience.

Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan lies 18km to the north of Koh Samui and is much less developed and even more quiet than Samui. Famous for it’s full moon party, Koh Phangan is a favourite destination for backpackers. Koh Phangan’s beaches remain largely undeveloped and some of the more remote beaches are only accessible by boat. The island is famous for it’s waterfalls, beautiful natural rock formations, lovely beaches with a young crowd chilling out in bamboo beach bars. Samui Ocean Sports & Yacht Charter offers private sailing charters to Koh Phangan!

There is plenty of accommodation and fantastic beach restaurants for real thai cusine and provisioning is widely available on most anchorages.

Koh Tao

45km north of Koh Phangan lies the third largest island in the Samui archipelago, the island of Koh Tao. Koh Tao means turtle island due to the once abundance of breeding turtles. The island is covered with thick tropical vegetation and white sand beaches. Koh Tao is known locally as the diving destination in the gulf and whale sharks are often seen in these waters. The best place in the gulf for snorkeling and scuba diving. Whilst offering beautiful anchorages with turquoise clear water, the island also offers a cosy little harbour town with various international cuisine and good provisioning possibilities.

National Marine Park

The Ang Thong Marine Park is made up of over 40 islands spread over 100 square kilometres in the gulf of Thailand. Declared a national marine park in 1980, it is made up of hundreds of limestone monoliths creating a group of strikingly beautiful and uninhabited islands. It is full of exotic beaches, hidden bays, untouched wildlife and fantastic sailing. Ang Thong means golden basin, and gave Alex Garland the inspiration for the world famous book/movie the beach.

Located to the north west of Koh Samui , the Marine park is just a days sail away and rewards you with plenty of idyllic anchorages with just pure nature around. Largely untouched, the marine park hosts endless secluded beaches, beautiful snorkelling and lots of wildlife. Sea otters, dolphins, monkeys and huge white eagles are commonly seen.With only a Rangers station/camping ground on site, provisioning is very limited and is closed during the monsoon period of November to December.
