Best time to visit

The best time to visit the biggest Thai island is between November and April when the weather is ideal for beach activities such as boating, snorkeling, and swimming.

The other six months are monsoon season, the accommodation prices are way lower these months but the water can be dangerous, and it is hard to find a trip by ferry or a speedboat because of the water conditions.
