The Andaman coast is famous for its karst cliffs and has hundreds of gorgeous islands with crystalline waters in which to spend an unforgettable vacation. The vertical walls of the cliffs delight rock climbing enthusiasts and its extensive coastal area is ideal for boat trips and water sports.
You can find diving courses and diving areas everywhere, but the most famous ones are the Similan Islands, Koh Phi Phi and Koh Tarutao (Koh Lipe).
In this post we help you find your ideal beach.
Khao Lak has a coastline that stretches over 20 km and numerous beautiful beaches to stroll along. It is an excellent destination for people who want to get away from the crowds and discover their favourite hideaway beach.
Facing the coastline, there are three fabulous paradises for diving and snorkelling, with incredible beaches. They are the Similan National Park, Surin Island and Tachai Island.
A useful post about Khao Lak.
Phuket is the largest island in the Andaman Sea and has lots of beaches on its south and above all western side.
Patong is full of the hustle and bustle, with a lively nightlife while there are others much quieter beaches such as Surin, Kata, Rawai, Kamala or Ya Nui. The island provides a wide range of tourist services. An excellent destination and starting point to enjoy the Andaman Sea.

Koh Phi Phi
Koh Phi Phi, without doubt, is one of the most spectacular sceneries in the whole country.
The beauty of its landscape and the multitude of nearby islands with white sands and crystal clear water are memorable, although being so famous makes it a trendy destination for thousands of tourists who share relatively limited space.
A beautiful post of Koh Phi Phi.
Krabi - Ao Nang
The beaches with a backdrop of cliffs are the mark of identity of the coast around Krabi, with deep turquoise-blue and transparent waters.
Stay in Krabi, or better in Ao Nang, and plan the trips from there. This area offers a wide range of accommodation and tourist services and is also very lively at night.
Nice post of Krabi & Aonang.
