Thailand has a lot of scenic jewels to offer in terms of its islands. Blessed with tropical beaches, this is a list of some of the best islands. If you needed an apt shortlist, here are a few of them:
Ko Phi Phi Lee
Koh Phi Le is the island of Phi Phi Archipelago in the Strait of Malacca. It is located in the Krabi Province of Thailand and is part of the Hot Nobarat Tara-Mu Ko Phi National Park.
The island has a ring of steep limestone hills surrounding the two shallow bays of Maya Bay and Lo Sama. Excellent for swimwear. There are great snorkelling opportunities at the entrance.
Koh Libong is one of the 550 islands in the Andaman Sea. Ko Lipang is known for its flora and fauna, like its beaches. The island belongs to a small Muslim fishing community and has a few resorts on its west coast beaches. Trang’s largest island is 30 minutes by the long tail from the Hot Yao landscape. Visiting less than the neighbouring islands, it is a beautiful, lush mountain pearl, covered with rubber trees, thick with marshes.
Koh Sukon or Koh Sukon or Koh Mu is an island in the Andaman Sea in the Balian District of South-West Thailand’s Sadun Province. The small island of Koh Sukkorn is one of the most well known of the Trang Islands. With very few tourists, it has a real local life to it.
Named for its elephant headland, Koh Chang is also known as Elephant Island, which is Thailand’s third-largest island after Phuket and Samui. It is located 300 kilometers east of Bangkok in the province of Drat, in the Gulf of Thailand, near the Cambodian border.
James Bond Island
Located about 40 meters (130 feet) from the shore of Cao Ping Khan, is a 20-meter (66 ft) high island called Koh Mei Pu or Ko Tappu. Since 1974, when the James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun was shot here, Gao Ping Khan and Koh Da Bu became popularly known as James Bond Island. Its dangerous position is large in the upper part and slim down. The two best ways to see James Bond Island is by boat or by a small beach in Ko Bing Khan.
