Luxury, all inclusive yacht charter holidays in Thailand’s Islands – a ‘must visit’ cruising destination in Southeast Asia
Clapotis Mer yachting holiday specialist offers all inclusive, crewed yacht charter in Thailand’s southern islands. The Andaman islands off the south-west coast of Thailand are some of the most beautiful sailing locations in Southeast Asia.
You can choose to cruise on board either the luxury sail and power catamarans or the classic sailing schooner. During a weekly yacht charter you can sail from Phuket to visit the most popular islands in Thailand such as the Phi Phi Islands, Ko Ngai, Ko Muk, Ko Kradan, Ko Rok Nok and Ko Haa.
Alternatively, you can charter the classic sailing yacht for an adventure sailing holiday in the Langkawi islands just off the northwest coast of Malaysia and Ko Tarutao island in the south of Thailand.
Thailand’s islands together with the Langkawi islands are among the most exciting yachting holiday destinations in the Andaman Sea.
Start your yachting holiday from Phuket and head for Thailand’s southern islands and Krabi islands.
Phuket is an international point of departure for yacht charters planning to sail around the most beautiful islands in Thailand. The cruising area includes Krabi islands, the southern Thailand islands just across from Langkawi in Malaysia in the Andaman Sea. Sail in the National Marine Parks in Thailand, home to scented tropical rainforests and exotic wildlife.
Phang Nga Bay and Krabi islands are to the north east of Phuket. Set sail for the world famous ‘James Bond Island’ along with more than a hundred pristine Thailand islands. Koh Racha Yai and Koh Racha Noi are beautiful twin islands off the south coast of Phuket and the Phi Phi islands are just south west of Krabi town. You might decide to cruise further south to enjoy Koh Lanta Island and its surrounding peaceful islands. Alternatively sail northwest into the Andaman Sea to the remote, yet popular, Similan Islands National Park in Thailand. Koh Adang and Koh Rawi are further south and two of Thailand’s hidden gem islands. Koh Lipe is a small inhabited Thailand island with a lively tiny town in the Tarutao National Marine Park off Satun Province. It’s a peaceful place on the south-west coast of Thailand just a few miles away from Langkawi in Malaysia.
A cruise between Phuket and Langkawi in Malaysia can be a magical holiday experience.
Phang Nga Bay is dotted with hundreds of islands and is known for its good anchorages and calm seas during the dry season. Mainland Thailand surrounding Phang Nga Bay offers nature lovers an unspoiled landscape. Here you will find Koh Tarutao Island where the Thai islands that make up the Koh Tarutao Marine National Park are accessible by yachts departing from either Phuket or Langkawi. The Tarutao and Adang-Rawi archipelagos are the most beautiful lesser-known Thai islands offering idyllic yacht sailing holidays off the southern coast edge of Thailand near the border with Malaysia, just north of Langkawi.
The Similan Islands are part of Thailand some 80 miles northwest of Phuket and are one of Thailand’s most popular sailing destinations if you fancy an area that is wild and largely uninhabited with secluded beaches and coves.
The Surin Islands are a group of five islands. Mu Ko Surin National Park is located about 30 miles off the west coast of Thailand. The Surin community of Moken made their home on Koh Surin Nuea Island. Richelieu Rock, a purple coral reef off Surin Island, is the habitat of a variety of marine life. Surin Islands National Park is the closest marine boundary between Myanmar and Thailand.
Langkawi Island in Malaysia is around 124 miles south of Phuket. It is a good starting point for your sailing holiday.
Travelling by yacht lets you discover Langkawi Island’s most beautiful places. The Langkawi archipelago consists of ninety-nine mostly uninhabited tropical islands where you will find pristine beaches and mountains covered with lush forest. Langkawi is a lovely and peaceful sailing destination close to Thailand. It is one of the most beautiful regions to visit in Southeast Asia.
A short sail north from Langkawi will take you to the islands off the south of Thailand; a beautiful area for a yacht cruising holiday. You can also start your boat charter from Telaga Harbour on the west coast of Langkawi Island. Make for Burau Bay and then set sail north for Datai Bay, home to some of Langkawi’s most idyllic beaches. Tanjung Rhu Beach on the north coast of Langkawi has a legendary cave for you to visit. On the east coast of Langkawi you can anchor by Kilim River in the middle of the mangrove forest. Sail around the southern islands and into Bass Harbour to anchor off Kuah Town – Langkawi’s capital. Pulau Dayang on Bunting Island is famous for the mystical ‘Lake of the Pregnant Maiden’ and surrounded by tropical rainforests. Kayak around the water’s edge to watch the monkeys and other animals and then sail back up the west coast to reach Pantai Cenang. Here you can visit the Underwater World in Langkawi, Malaysia’s largest aquarium.
