If you are heading to Thailand anytime soon and want to go snorkelling at the many great sites in the country, read on.
To explore what the waters of Thailand have to offer, the best thing to do is go snorkelling during your vacation. If you are put up at Ao Nang beach hotels the likes of Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort, you can ask your hotel if they have excursion packages for snorkelling sites nearby.
Ao Mae Yai Bay
This is the most visited snorkelling site in all of Thailand. A combination of 5 islands form the bay area and it falls under the Mu Koh Surin Marine National Park control. Thus, you can rest assured the place is well maintained and safe to explore.
Koh Nang Yuan
Following the Ao Mae Yai Bay is Koh Nang Yuan. Yet another place formed with 3 islands, you can find this site at the northeast part of Koh Tao. Connected by an exotic sandbar, the waters here are home to rich coral life and more. Since the place is shallow, even amateur divers can go snorkelling freely.
Aow Leuk Beach
Known as Turtle Island locally, Aow Leuk is found on the southwest coast of Krabi. If you want to snorkel here, you can grab some snorkelling gear right on the beach as you will find many water sports centres right on the sands. The waters here are rich in marine life and corals too.
