Things to Do at Khai Islands

Taking a tour of the three islands by speedboat is the most recommended activity in the region. Among other things, snorkeling, scuba diving or simply unwinding on the gorgeous beaches with a refreshing cocktail are other things that tourists can indulge while visiting these islands.

For a tour on a speedboat around the island, the cost is between THB 800 to 1500. There is no entry fee for children below the age of 3 years. If you are also interested in adding scuba diving to your package, the cost is THB 2000 If you want to soak in the sun, to rent a sun-bathing chair, you must pay a nominal fee of THB 150.

Tips

  • The sun might feel harsh on the body, especially in the summer. Therefore, make sure you apply and carry enough sunscreen while going to the beach.

  • Refrain from going on a speed boat ride if you have a back, spinal or neck problem.

  • During peak season, the beaches get crowded and you might not find a good spot to lay your towel and sunbathe. Do not buy/rent snorkeling gear from your taxi-driver because these might not be standardized and safe.
