The Speed Boat Hong Island Tour will lead you in an island hopping, including Hong Island, Koh Ladin and Pakbia Island. Hong Island is the most known among them. This “island of rooms” is a perfect escape on holiday. It is a wonderful uninhabited island renowned for its breath-taking beauty, shallow coral reefs and fine, sandy beaches. In the middle of the half-circle shaped island lies the secret lagoon, where you can find yourself at one with nature. Picnic lunch and time for swimming, snorkeling and exploring. Relaxing and fun.
Hong Island Lagoon is absolutely one of the most charming places in the Andaman Sea: a narrow gateway between the high rock’s wall leads into the peaceful and spectacular environment of mangrove swamps decorated with the rounded shape roots of mangroves, emerging from the waters, and crowned with its green leaves. When the tide is lower it’s easy to see the curious, small fauna populating this habitat, such as the mud-skippers, amphibious fishes that can use their pelvic fins to walk on the mud or like the fiddler crab: small crabs with a major claw much larger than the other.
Ladin Island, known also as Paradise Island, is a small island in the Hong Archipelago. Guests will land in a small secluded bay, whose main characteristic are the high located caves where swallows build their nests. The bird’s nests, being food extremely appreciated by Chinese people, are a particularly thriving market. Visitors can see as evidence of this activity, the large bamboo canes used by the collector to climb and take the so called “White Gold”.
Pick up in hotel by air-con minivan or by Song-teo, transfer to the boarding place, meeting with local guide and short briefing.
Arrival at Hong Island. Time to admire the beautiful landscape and picnic lunch on the beach.
A stunning double beach with white powdery sand set in a bay with turquoise water, the Hong Island is the ideal place to enjoy some free time for sunbathing, relaxing, snorkelling, feeding the fish and photography. The lush jungle of the island can be explored by strolling the paths that depart from the beach. If lucky, you can see the monitor lizards that like to rest and hunt among the vegetation. A healthy picnic lunch is served on the beach.
Arrival in Hong lagoon and time for swimming in the clear water.
Hong Lagoon, also known as The Room with a view, is a secluded lagoon surrounded by high limestone cliffs. There is only one entrance to this fantastic scenery, a channel about 10 meters wide that opens into the inner sea lake. The water here is shallow, and adults and children can relax and lazily swim around.
Arrival at Pakbia Island for snorkelling.
With its sandy beach and peculiar shape, the remote Pakbia Island is where we stop for more snorkelling and photography. The island features a circular dome connected to a rocky crop by a stripe of almost yellow sand. Its waters are more emerald than crystal clear and the very natural environment makes it an amazing scenery.
Arrival at LaoLading: time for more swimming and snorkelling.
Lao Lading Island, known as Paradise Island, is the last stop of the tour. The locals come here and climb the rocky walls to collect the highly seek birds’ nests to cook soup. You can enjoy more swimming and snorkelling, and observe the natural caves where swallows build their nests.
