KOH PHAI NORTH. 12°56.867N, 100°40.296E

Anchor well clear of the fringing reef in 4-6 metres on sand, but watch out for, and avoid, the odd coral patch. Pick up a buoy if there is one. This day stop is ideal, in the southwest season, for snorkelling or a walk along the beach.

19 miles from South Pattaya Bay

KOH KLUNG BUDAN. 12°54.213N, 100°40.761E

Anchor on sand in 9-12 metres on the northeast end of this island. There is a single rock at the southeast end of the small bay. The water is usually very clear, and the beach is easily accessible by dinghy, offering some of the best snorkelling in this group. Follow the track to a small shrine full of phallic objects on the northern hill.

18 miles from South Pattaya Bay

KOH MAN WICHAI. 12°52.442N, 100°40.480E

Anchor on sand halfway down the island on the east coast in 5-6 metres. The water is usually clear and good for swimming. Snorkelling is better farther south at Koh Rin. Shelter here is marginal and this is certainly only a daytime anchorage.
