When planning a sailing route in Thailand, there are numerous options available. Multiple factors need to be taken into account like sail experience, duration and your personal preferences and interest. Thailand offers a wide range of beautiful islands and white sand beaches. Here is a suggested sailing route that covers some of the popular destinations in the Andaman Sea:


Start your journey in Phuket, the largest island in Thailand. Explore the vibrant city, enjoy the bustling nightlife, and stock up on provisions before setting sail. Phang Nga Bay, located just northeast of Phuket, is a must-visit with its stunning limestone karsts and hidden lagoons.

Koh Roi:

Ko Roi, also known as Ko Lao Lading, is a beautiful island in the Andaman Sea. It's like a paradise with stunning blue waters, tall cliffs made of rock, and pretty sandy beaches. It's a perfect destination for people who love sailing and exploring nature.

When you start your journey from Phuket, you'll feel the cool sea breeze on your face. As you sail, you might even see dolphins playing and jumping near your boat. And if you're lucky, you might spot graceful sea turtles swimming underwater.

Koh Phi Phi:

Sail southeast from Phuket to the iconic Koh Phi Phi islands, one of the most famous islands. These picturesque islands, known for their sheer cliffs and crystal-clear waters, have beautiful beaches. Besides, they also offer many fantastic snorkeling and scuba diving opportunities. Don't miss the iconic and well known Maya Bay, which got its fame by the movie "The Beach."

Koh Muk

As you sail towards Koh Muk, you'll be amazed by its crystal-clear turquoise waters and soft sandy beaches. The island is famous for its mesmerizing Emerald Cave, a hidden treasure you won't want to miss. To reach this magical spot, you'll need to swim through a narrow passage. As you emerge, you'll find yourself in a secret lagoon surrounded by lush greenery. It's like stepping into a fairytale! Spend time snorkeling, swimming, and basking in the sun on the island's pristine beaches before setting sail to our next destination.

Ko Ha Yai

Next on our journey is Ko Ha Yai, a group of five stunning limestone islands. These islands are a haven for divers and snorkelers, with their vibrant coral reefs and an abundance of marine life. Grab your snorkel gear and dive into the clear waters to discover colorful fish, playful sea turtles, and maybe even some hidden underwater caves. Exploring the underwater world at Ko Ha Yai is like exploring a magical aquarium, and it's an experience you'll never forget.

Koh Racha Ya

Finally, we reach the paradise island of Koh Racha Ya, also known as Racha Island. This little piece of heaven offers breathtaking white sandy beaches and calm azure waters. Whether you prefer lounging on the beach, swimming in the warm sea, or snorkeling to see the vibrant coral reefs, there's something for everyone on Koh Racha Ya. Take a stroll along the palm-fringed shores, build sandcastles, or simply relax and soak up the sun. This island is all about enjoying the beauty of nature and embracing the peacefulness of the surroundings.

It's important to note that weather conditions and seasons may affect the approach of this route. It's recommended to consult with local experts, such as yacht charter companies or experienced sailors. Ask for the most up-to-date information on sailing routes, prevailing winds. Also, always check whether there are any specific regulations or permits required for certain areas.

Remember to plan your sailing trip with flexibility, allowing for spontaneous detours and adjustments based on weather conditions and your preferences. Sailing in Thailand offers a unique opportunity to discover hidden gems and create long lasting memories in this tropical paradise.
