Snorkel Myanmar’s Best Destinations

Snorkel undiscovered reefs in this remote area of the world

Andaman Snorkel Discovery’s snorkel liveaboard boat offers you one of the only chances to snorkel Myanmar’s best destinations. Myanmar in general is a great location for snorkelling but to date remains largely undiscovered.

Warm, clear waters are teeming with exotic tropical fish. There are colourful corals and giant seafans forming wonderful scenery underwater. To snorkel Myanmar’s reefs is like being in another lost world.

If you have already snorkelled in the tropical waters of Thailand then this new, amazing destination offers new possibilities for adventure and discovery.

Small Rocky Islands and Hidden Reefs

On our route around the Mergui Archipelago we will pass many small rocky islands. Some are in remote areas and are teeming with fish life under water. There are also hidden, submerged pinnacles often visited by whale sharks and giant manta rays.

The small rocky islands are not only a great place to explore the underwater world, they are also extremely picturesque and make for great photo opportunities. With so many islands making up the Mergui Archipelago there’s a seemingly never ending supply of beautiful locations for us to explore. We aim to show you the best and also explore new exciting areas.

Uninhabited Tropical Islands and Beaches

The Mergui Archipelago has many larger islands too. We have included many on our itinerary. Most of the islands are uninhabited and have beautiful white sandy beaches. Be the first to explore these locations and be the first to leave your footprints in the sand 🙂 These large islands often have fringing coral reefs for us to explore too.

We will stop at one inhabited island along the way. You will have the an unique opportunity to experience the simple life of a fisherman living in a remote part of the world. As beautiful and simple as this beach life it is, tempting you to want to stay there, please remember we do have to take you back to the mainland at some point.

More Great Snorkelling Destinations in Thailand

Koh Bon

Koh Bon is located between the famous Similan Islands and Koh Tachai. It is known locally as the middle island. Koh Bon differs dramatically from the Similan Islands in it’s topography. Koh Bon has a different look and feel to it. It is also of great importance to the largest ray that migrates through Thai waters.

Surin Islands

The Surin Islands are often over shadowed by their famous neighbours, the Similan Islands. For snorkelers the Surin Islands actually have a lot more appeal. Beneath the warm, shallow waters that surround the islands, there are extensive coral reef ecosystems. The Surin Islands have made a name for themselves as the best Thailand snorkel destination.

Koh Tachai

Koh Tachai is the most northerly island before you reach the Surin Islands. Like the Similan Islands, huge granite boulders, dense tropical rainforest dominate the scene, surrounded by the turquoise warm waters of the Andaman Sea. The beach at Koh Tachai is the most beautiful in all of the Similan National Park.
