Highway 4203, Ao Nang, 81000

The Basics

The Hong Islands are rife with secluded beaches, coral reefs, and sea caves to explore. There’s something for every type of outdoor enthusiast—Railay is popular with rock climbers, Koh Hong's Hong Lagoon is a calm place to kayak, and Phang Nga Bay has scenic views and great sunbathing.

Longtail boat or speedboat tours are a good way to visit the islands and typically depart from Krabi or Phuket. Some excursions include snorkeling or kayaking, and often feature stops at Khao Phing Kan, Ao Nang Beach, Phi Phi Island, and Lading Island.

One-Day Tour at Hong Islands by Speedboat from Krabi
This trip is less because of the lack of tourism season. We travel to Hong Island by speed boat. The guides helped us a lot and he can speak 6 languages. The island is very beautiful, white sand beach and a lot of fish. What you should do when snorkeling is do not allow food to fish. There will be staff to call you if you do. Our family is very fun.

Full-Day Tour to Phang Nga Bay Including James Bond Island and Hong Island by Speedboat from Krabi
The staff and guides were lovely and there was plenty of time to see the area. The boat was not the largest however I thought it was better to have a smaller team and I really enjoyed it.

Hong Island Sightseeing Tour with Mr. Baw by Longtail Boat
The snorkeling was amazing and my boys and I kayaked into the lagoon when the water was knee deep. I walked around barefoot in the lagoon while the boys paddled around and I took many photos. While kayaking back, we came a across a giant monitor about a meter long.

Full-Day Tour to Phang Nga Bay Including James Bond Island and Hong Island by Speedboat from Krabi
I like to travel solo often, yet tourist attractions don’t always call my name! But this tour is definitely necessary when in Krabi! Easy, great way to explore all the islands and I highly recommend the kyacking in the Hongs! Along with plenty of water, fresh fruit, and food for all dietary needs!

Small-Group Sea Kayaking at Hong Island from Krabi
The day was well organised, we had a good guide who gave us information on each island stop. Hong Island was where we spent the most time kayaking 4km around the island. This was followed by a very good lunch and free time for a swim and an optional nature walk. We then visited 2 other islands in the group where we had more time to explore or enjoy free time for swimming.

An Amazing Day Out!

Island Hopping from Hong to James Bond Islands from Krabi with Speedboat
This was an amazing day out from start to finish. The speedboat was an exciting way to travel between islands, and our guide was very friendly and informative which enhanced the experience. The day included a snorkelling stop (everyone had to wear life jackets) and visits to a variety of islands where we walked along pathways to be shown fascinating flora and fauna plus some relaxing time to enjoy the beaches and seas. The tour is advertised as ‘avoiding the crowds’ and it did exactly that; the seven of us on the trip had these beautiful places to ourselves. Lunch on the beach was very impressive – hot food for everyone including a tasty vegetarian option which we had pre-requested. Soft drinks, fruit and water were also freely available throughout the day. I can wholeheartedly recommend this trip which is definitely well worth the cost.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Some of the islands are located within Ao Phang Nga National Park, so fees may apply. Be sure to have cash on hand as most tours don’t include the national park fee.

  • The sea can be choppy, so those prone to seasickness should prepare ahead of time—especially if you’re traveling by longtail boat.

  • Because of the bumpy waters, most boat operators won’t serve pregnant women or children under 1 year old.

When to Get There

The tropical coast of southern Thailand is warm year-round, but April through May and September through October are the hottest and rainiest periods. November through March is a great time to visit, as breezes keep the temperature warm but comfortable.

James Bond Island

Khao Phing Kan and Ko Ta Pu, two towering limestone karst islands, are collectively known as James Bond Island thanks to their appearance in the 1974 filmThe Man with the Golden Gun. These islands served as the setting for an enemy hideout and later became part of the National Park. While you can still visit Khao Phing Kan, it’s now forbidden for boats to approach Ko Ta Pu due to threat of erosion.
