When looking for an easy, close by island day trip that is good for families, snorkelling and relaxing on the beach you can’t beat the Khai Islands. The Khai Islands is made up of 3 separate islands:
1. Khai Nai
2. Khai Nau
3. Khai Nok
Each of the three Islands offers something slightly different for you to experience; Khai Nai offers clear, shallow water and snorkelling which is perfect for families with young children. Khai Nau is also an excellent spot for some snorkelling right off the boat, and has a great variety of coral and marine life to explore. Finally, Khai Nok has some good off the beach snorkelling and offers you the opportunity to relax on the beach.
These three islands are very close together, and are accessible in only 15 to 20 minutes from the 5 Star Marine pier at Boat Lagoon. The Khai Islands are especially good for beginner snorkellers as they offer the opportunity to snorkel straight off the beach and experience a plethora of tropical fish. If you are feeling a little more adventurous, you can move away from the Island a bit further to discover species of fish to snorkel amongst.
