Phang Nga Bay

Instantly distinguished by its limestone karsts jutting out of the emerald-green Andaman Sea, Phang Nga Bay is a must-see part of any trip to Phuket or Krabi. Beach and nature fanatics will be in their element, with caves, lagoons and secluded beaches all part of the stunning landscape.

James Bond Island (named for its role in the filming of the movie The Man With the Golden Gun) and Koh Panyee are the most famous spots, with boats cruising through the dramatic scenery to reach them. The former features its signature rock pinnacle, while nearby Koh Panyee is home to a small Muslim fishing village. Most of the island consists of giant, almost-vertical limestone cliffs, while the huts, restaurants and homes of the fishing community jut out over the water on stilts.

There are a range of ways to explore and experience Phang Nga Bay from Phuket or Krabi; arrive by speedboat or Chinese junk boat, take an idyllic canoe trip through the waters or join a sea cave tour and kayak to less-visited parts of the bay to secret lagoons and stunning caves.

Insider's Tip: The Samet Nangshe Viewpoint is a fantastic place to see Phang Nga Bay from a distance. Located atop a hill just a 30-minute drive from Phuket, the area offers a stunning 180-degree panorama facing due east, making it particularly spectacular at sunrise.

Practical Info

Part of the Ao Phang Nga National Park, Phang Nga Bay is located in the Andaman Sea between Phuket and the mainland of southern Thailand, with organized boat trips being the easiest way to visit. It is recommended that visitors dress modestly if visiting Koh Panyee.
