We have all missed the excitement and freedom that travel gives us, so to take us back to our pre-pandemic times we’re going to take you on three perfect days of Island hopping in Thailand.

Thailand is one of the most popular tourist destinations. This paradise is filled with tranquil beaches, exotic cuisine, spectacular temples with interesting historical stories. There are endless remote islands surrounded by stunning scenery, some of which are only accessible by boat. 

There’s no better way to travel the globe than from the deck of a private superyacht, with the sea breeze in your hair and a new location every day, chartering a yacht allows you to explore further afield and find the most secluded anchorages and private beaches that are ideal for people searching for the ultimate escape.

Between November and early April is the ideal time to visit Thailand. This is the driest and warmest season of the year, with temperatures ranging from 32 to 36 degrees Celsius. Every day, you’ll get up to nine hours of sunshine, which means you’ll have plenty of opportunities to sunbathe or take part in a range of water sports.

The islands of Koh Tao, Koh Pan Nang, and Koh Samui are yacht charter paradises. Providing the ideal combination of leisure and action for any vacation. So let us take you through some of the best experiences you can enjoy on each of these beautiful islands:

Koh Tao

Koh Tao

The greatest diving location in Thailand is Koh Tao, which means Turtle Island. This 21 km² island holds white sand beaches and hills from which to take in the scenery on a morning stroll. While diving in Koh Tao you’ll get to see vibrant coral reefs and a diverse array of aquatic animals which of course includes turtles. This island should be on every divers bucket list.

Suppose you enjoy pina colada’s and consider yourself a foodie. Koh Tao offers a great variety of restaurants and nightlife with a diverse range of cuisines and dining styles to choose from.

Koh Pha Ngan

This unspoiled island is Thailand’s fifth-largest and is only 12km from Koh Samui or  70km from the mainland.

Here you will experience lush tropical jungles, long white sandy beaches, and an option to enjoy one of the 20 dive sites, comparable to its neighbouring island of Koh Tao.

The island is famous for its Full Moon parties, which transform its beaches into open-air festivals where visitors can dance the night away. Just one street back from the beach, you will find a wonderful strip of restaurants where you can enjoy a calmer evening sampling Thailand’s delicious cuisine.

Koh Pha Ngan’s must-do activities will allow you to spend your holiday enjoying the island’s natural beauty. From beaches and waterfalls to viewpoints at the top of its many hills, this piece of paradise is extraordinary.

Anchored in one of the island’s many secluded bays. Spending the day paddle boarding or enjoying your favourite beverages on board is the ideal way to appreciate this beautiful island.
