Full description
The first stop is Monkey Beach, named after the primates that inhabit it. Watch the curious creatures wander about, take in the fantastic views of the island, or swim in the turquoise waters before heading to the next stop. Viking Cave was named after the paintings found on its walls, one of which was a Scandinavian-looking boat, hence the cave’s name. Besides the impressive sketches, another thing the site is famous for are the birds’ nests that locals collect for the popular Chinese dish, bird’s nest soup. You’ll head to Pileh Lagoon next, where you can jump into the emerald waters and snorkel with the fish. You can also relax on the boat and take in the gorgeous scenery. You won’t get this unique backdrop of limestone cliffs and crystal clear waters anywhere else. The next stop is another popular snorkeling spot, Loh Samah Bay. Even if you’re not an experienced swimmer, you can wade around in the shallow waters of the bay and catch glimpses of the colorful marine life. After splashing around, you’ll head to Maya Bay, which famously appeared in the 1999 movie The Beach. Admire the majestic views of the steep cliffs encircling the beach, before heading back to the pier.

Estafados entre aguas cristalinas. Pagamos 4900 THB (131€) por un tour privado de 5h con salida en Tonsai y finalización (en teoría) en Maya Bay para el atardecer, todo con un guía de habla inglesa. La realidad es que, por 1800 THB (49€) tienes el mismo servicio (el barco privado para ti) contratandolo en el puesto más cercano a tu hotel ( o en tu propio hotel). El guía ni sabía el orden del tour ni hablaba NADA de inglés. Una parada (Monkey Beach) ni la hizo porque no sabía ni que había que parar ahí. Tuvimos que guiarle nosotros para poder ver las zonas principales que se indicaba. Gafas de buceo, agua y comida si estaban incluidas, pero, Get your Guide debería controlar mejor que Guías ofrece, y ver si hablan ALGO de inglés o no y, por supuesto, asegurarse de que cumplan el planning. Ni si quiera podíamos apenas comunicarnos con él por el problema del idioma. Entiendo que con otro guía que hable inglés la experiencia sería mejor pero NUNCA justificaría este precio tan DESORBITADO
