Our favorites

Railay Beach displays its insolent beauty. Considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world on the outskirts of Phuket in Krabi province, Railay Beach asserts itself, to the delight of all your senses. Mangroves, steep cliffs, traditional boats – one thing is sure: you can’t stay long inside your boat!

Koh Lipe, in its pristine state… In the south of Thailand, this enchanted island is a place where peace and tranquility reign. With fewer inhabitants than animals, this small natural paradise has a soothing and rejuvenating atmosphere. Diving into the island’s underwater scenery will only add flavor to this charming stopover. You may even see a whale sha rk or a seahorse in its natural habitat!

Koh Tapu, is known not only as the “nail island”, but also James Bond’s island, having been used as a film location in both “Tomorrow Never Dies” and “The Man with the Golden Gun”. As grandiose as it is symbolic, this little corner of paradise in Phang Nga Bay exudes a soothing calm. Just opposite are the secret caves of Koh Phing Khan that will wonderfully satisfy your curiosity.

The best time to visit Thailand

Though Thailand’s tropical climate varies from one region to another, there are two main, distinct seasons. To make the most of this extraordinary boating destination, we advise you to avoid the monsoon season between May and October, recommending instead the dry season, from December through April. The air temperature is on average 33°C (91°F) and the water temperature is around 29°C (84°F): perfect conditions for sunbathing on deck or for taking a dip in the amazing turquoise water!
