Destination: Koh Tachai

09.04 N 097.48 E

Small island about 2/3 on the way from the Similans to the Surin islands. The SE tip is one of Thailand's best dive sites and the snorkeling is by no means bad either. On the S side there is a small bay which gives adequate shelter for overnight stays in the NE season.

On the NE side there is a very splendid beach but due to it's location exposed to NE winds, this is only suitable as a day-time anchorage in calm conditions.
