Spend some time at the beach and explore the underwater world before enjoying lunch with authentic Thai cuisine on the serene sandy beach of Princess Bay.
Depart for Koh Payu, the Island No. 7, which is ideal for snorkeling at the East of Eden with a reef slope that ranges from 5 to 40 metres. Then make your way to the waters of Christmas Point at Koh Bangu, the Island No. 9, for one more snorkeling opportunity with massive coral heads in The Mooring, and Snapper Alley for Asian snapper living among the giant rocks.

Get transferred back to your hotel and replay the day's happenings.

You can return the next or following day with the same speed boat that brought you there.
