Hi everyone. Today I’m doing a post about the different beaches we visited whilst in Thailand. We went on quite a few different boat trips during our holiday and it doesn’t make sense to do a post for each day- plus I can’t remember anything other than the names of the beaches/ islands.
So, these next photographs are really the main thing I enjoyed whilst in Thailand- the beaches. They were just stunning. I so seriously want to go back there right now. I write this as it is dark grey outside and raining heavily.
This first picture is of Ao Nang beach. The photo is taken from a restaurant right on the beach. This was the main beach on the mainland. Our hotel was about 5 minutes walk up the road from here. When I first saw this beach, I was disappointed as I was expecting white sand and all that. However, I soon came to realise how beautiful it was and got plenty of white sand on the islands.
The next couple are of Nopparat Thara beach. This was the next one along from Ao Nang. We had a beautiful morning walking all along these 2 beaches. Right at the end of this beach was a small harbour filled with wooden long tailed boats. It was really pretty there.
This next beach is on an island called Chicken Island. It is called that because of the shape of rock that sticks out. I couldn’t see it myself… However, this island was absolutely gorgeous. And the trees up in the hills were full of monstrously huge fruit bats. Unfortunately, didn’t have my big camera lens with me so never got pictures of them.
That’s Chicken Island behind me and Brian. And yes, sorry about the smudge. It was on my lens for the first few days. What a wally!
These next couple are of Hong Island. We went there for a kayaking trip but I bottled out after seeing how far I had to go in the rather choppy sea. The lagoon bit looked ok but I wasn’t brave enough to get round to it so we both stayed at the beach instead for a couple of hours. It was beautiful.
This is the lagoon where we were supposed to do the kayaking.
This was the sea going into the lagoon- such a beautiful colour. (This wasn’t the choppy bit!)
This was the beach. As you can see, gorgeous is an understatement!
The next few are from Railay Beach. Apparently supposed to be one of the most beautiful strips of sand in the world. It was very beautiful and we went here a couple of times as it was just a 10 minute boat trip around a couple of bays up the coast from us.
So that is all for this post but I have a part 2 which is below. Check it out! Don’t forget my Flickr page has all these and many more too.
