Phuket and the Phang Nga Bay Cruise
Just a few miles northeast of Phuket is the star attraction – Phang-Nga Bay. Here are more than 100 islands with geology varying from low, gently sloping hills to the sheer-sided limestone sea mountains (karsts) that rise vertically out of the water to stunning heights. Images of Phang-nga and its steep, majestic and strange outcrops have travelled the world. While the bay itself is not large, the number of islands, inlets, mangrove channels and sea caves to be explored ensures that no matter how long a yachtsman spends here, new experiences will always be around the corner.
Day One: Phang Nga Bay: Spectacular limestone cliffs towering out of the sea, sea eagles dropping out of the sky swooping on their prey, calm waters, pristine nature, fantastic kayaking through caves and inland lakes, local fishermen selling freshly caught seafood, just a few reasons why one has to visit the Phang Nga Bay.
Day Two: Anchor out Koh Pak Bia for it’s pretty beach and sail to Ao Nang, Krabi. Many argue that Krabi’s beaches, backed by dense rain forest, are amongst the most beautiful in the world.
