Best time to go

The best time to visit Khao Phing Kan island is during the relatively cool and dry season between November and April. The weather is still warm, but not as humid as Thai summers, and rainfall is less common than in summer. The temperate days are also preferable when you’re spending most of the day under the sun!

James Bond Island Tours

Explore the island in greater detail on a sea kayak or go snorkeling just beyond the beach on one of the full day tours. The sea life is exquisite, and you’ll see exotic fish and possibly a turtle or two just by swimming at the island. Both the half-day and full-day tours include stops to swim and relax.

    The cruise with Sea Angel was good and straightforward. The guide Tommy was funny and helpful. The cruise provided chilled drinks throughout the journey and a decent lunch. The top deck AC was not great. Toilets are basic. Visit to each attraction is good with decent time allotted to move about on our own. However, wach attraction is jam packed with tourists.
