STOP AT PAKBIA ISLAND
Departure from the pier and, after almost 20 minutes, arrival at Pakbia Island. Time for swimming and relax on the beach.
Pakbia is a small Island, one of the hundreds of gems emerging here and there in the spectacular Phang Nga Bay. Just a small strip of sand at the end of tropical vegetation, which connect with a rock on the other side and that changes its shape accordingly with the tide, Pakbia is probably the best place to make snorkelling in the Hong Archipelago
STOP LADIN ISLAND
Arrival in Ladin Island and time for swimming, sun bathing and snorkelling in the clear water of the island.
Ladin Island, also known as Paradise Island, is a small secluded bay surrounded by high cliffs and hidden from the eyes of the world in the middle of the tens of islands forming Hong Archipelago. Thanks to its limestone cliffs Ladin Island has been recently the theatre of the final session of Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series thanks to its limestone cliffs. But one of the reason that make this island quite famous, is that in the season it becomes rooms for swallows who come to build their nest in the cliff’s caves.
VISIT HONG ISLAND LAGOON
Arrival at Hong Island and visit of the “hong” (room) a fantastic sea lake surrounded by mangroves tree and with towering Limestone cliffs on all sides.
Entering the narrow natural door formed by the high cliff’s wall, it is difficult to retain the surprise, the emotions and a sense of feeling very small in front of the greatness of nature. With high or low tide, Hong Lagoon offer a breath taking view: emerald green water, mangroves emerging from the sea, high surrounding rock’s wall. The existing fauna, typical of mangroves swamps, is formed by small sea animals, such as fiddler crabs or mud-skippers but is not impossible to see, elegantly gliding, a majestic sea eagle or listen to the far, striking gibbon’s song.
STOP AT HONG ISLAND
Arrival at Hong Island. Time for swimming, snorkelling, exploring and lunch box in the most beautiful and natural surroundings.
The fine white sands and clean clear waters make Hong Island’s main beach an ideal place to spend a great relaxing time. At the centre of the bay, a stunning rock seems to be there to establish which form the bay should take accordingly with the tide: a large unique beach with high tide, two smaller bays when tide is low. Though in the main bay there are no corals for a proper snorkelling, thousands of small coloured fish populate the waters ready to be fed by the visitors. On the back side of the beach a path across a rich tropical vegetation, connect the two extremity of the bay and it is easy to meet along the walk some monitor lizards inhabiting the island.
RETURN TO HOTEL
Boarding on the speed boat and move back to the pier and, following, transfer back to the hotels.
