How to get to Hong Islands?
You can hire a speedboat from Nopparathara Beach, Krabi. The trip will last only about 15 minutes. If you are going by a long-tail boat, it will take up to 40 minutes to get there.
- Very beautiful lagoons and beach
- Excellent beach with not many tourists
- Craggy and uniquely shaped islands
- Very picturesque for shutterbugs and adventurs seekers
- Nice white clean sandy Beach on each lagoon

Tips for you
Get the tickets from the Ao Nang beach area, it costs from 750-950 Bahts per person. Do not get from the hotels or travel agencies, as they will cost you double or more. There will be a National Park fee of 300 Bahts that you would need to pay as well before you step on your boat. We took the long tail boat. It was big, covered nicely and not hot inside. Note: for unfit (like me) persons, the long tail ladder to climb back to the boat when you have finished swimming in the sea, is kinda tricky. As normal speedboats' ladders will reach inside the water and you can easily step on them and climb up, the long tail boat is not. You would need to do some advanced gymnast skills to get on the ladder and climb back up to the boat. After a few times, you would get the hang of it. But seriously, if you think your upper body strength is not up to par, take the speedboat instead :) Guides were good (Pranang Tour guys). Very helpful, friendly, chatty, responsive, happy and accommodating. Remember to get a waterproof casing/bag or a waterproof camera/phone as there will be awesome marine life underwater that you might want to capture. The view, lagoons, bays and cliffs were breathtaking. Put on your sunblock and just dip and swim and snorkel and kayak like there's no tomorrow.
Simply stunning. Go before 10AM on a Long boat to avoid the speed boat crowd when the water gets higher
