Hong Islands (Mu Ko Hong)

Highway 4203, Ao Nang, 81000

The Basics

The Hong Islands are rife with secluded beaches, coral reefs, and sea caves to explore. There’s something for every type of outdoor enthusiast—Railay is popular with rock climbers, Koh Hong's Hong Lagoon is a calm place to kayak, and Phang Nga Bay has scenic views and great sunbathing.

Longtail boat or speedboat tours are a good way to visit the islands and typically depart from Krabi or Phuket. Some excursions include snorkeling or kayaking, and often feature stops at Khao Phing Kan, Ao Nang Beach, Phi Phi Island, and Lading Island.

Private Tour to Hong Islands & 4 Islands Sunset & Night Snorkel
We went on a cold, rainy day and were still having a great time - beautiful views at each island and our guide was super friendly and we never felt rushed. We got to do some snorkeling at Koh Lao La Ding because we were at low tide and saw beautiful coral and lots of fish! Unfortunately my husband hurt his foot (his own fault) so we had to cut our trip short and missed the night snorkel, but our guide and the tour operator took us to the hospital and handled everything for us - communicating with hospital staff and the trip insurance covered everything. Above and beyond service!! They took what would have been a terrifying experience and removed all the stress for us. Highly recommend this team!

One-Day Tour at Hong Islands by Speedboat from Krabi
This trip is less because of the lack of tourism season. We travel to Hong Island by speed boat. The guides helped us a lot and he can speak 6 languages. The island is very beautiful, white sand beach and a lot of fish. What you should do when snorkeling is do not allow food to fish. There will be staff to call you if you do. Our family is very fun.

Hong Island Sightseeing Tour with Mr. Baw by Longtail Boat
The snorkeling was amazing and my boys and I kayaked into the lagoon when the water was knee deep. I walked around barefoot in the lagoon while the boys paddled around and I took many photos. While kayaking back, we came a across a giant monitor about a meter long.

Full-Day Tour to Phang Nga Bay Including James Bond Island and Hong Island by Speedboat from Krabi
I like to travel solo often, yet tourist attractions don’t always call my name! But this tour is definitely necessary when in Krabi! Easy, great way to explore all the islands and I highly recommend the kyacking in the Hongs! Along with plenty of water, fresh fruit, and food for all dietary needs!

An Amazing Day Out!

Island Hopping from Hong to James Bond Islands from Krabi with Speedboat
This was an amazing day out from start to finish. The speedboat was an exciting way to travel between islands, and our guide was very friendly and informative which enhanced the experience. The day included a snorkelling stop (everyone had to wear life jackets) and visits to a variety of islands where we walked along pathways to be shown fascinating flora and fauna plus some relaxing time to enjoy the beaches and seas. The tour is advertised as ‘avoiding the crowds’ and it did exactly that; the seven of us on the trip had these beautiful places to ourselves. Lunch on the beach was very impressive – hot food for everyone including a tasty vegetarian option which we had pre-requested. Soft drinks, fruit and water were also freely available throughout the day. I can wholeheartedly recommend this trip which is definitely well worth the cost.

Small-Group Sea Kayaking at Hong Island from Krabi
Excellent day. It was @ a 30 minute drive from our hotel to the pier, and another 30 minutes on a long boat to reach the island. We were a small group of 4 and our guide A checked we were comfortable with kayaking before we set off round the island. We stopped off in a lagoon and the scenery was spectacular. We were given the choice of returning the way we came or carrying on round the island. We decided to carry on round and had some amazing features pointed out to us on the way. Back at the beach, we went for a tasty lunch of local dishes, and then had around an hour to snorkel. We then went by long boat to another beach for more snorkelling before returning to the pier and return to our hotels. A great day out. (It was very sad to see the amount of plastic in the sea, but we all picked up what we could to be disposed off properly at the end of the kayak).

Full-Day Tour to Phang Nga Bay Including James Bond Island and Hong Island by Speedboat from Krabi
The staff and guides were lovely and there was plenty of time to see the area. The boat was not the largest however I thought it was better to have a smaller team and I really enjoyed it.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Some of the islands are located within Ao Phang Nga National Park, so fees may apply. Be sure to have cash on hand as most tours don’t include the national park fee.

  • The sea can be choppy, so those prone to seasickness should prepare ahead of time—especially if you’re traveling by longtail boat.

  • Because of the bumpy waters, most boat operators won’t serve pregnant women or children under 1 year old.

James Bond Island

Khao Phing Kan and Ko Ta Pu, two towering limestone karst islands, are collectively known as James Bond Island thanks to their appearance in the 1974 filmThe Man with the Golden Gun. These islands served as the setting for an enemy hideout and later became part of the National Park. While you can still visit Khao Phing Kan, it’s now forbidden for boats to approach Ko Ta Pu due to threat of erosion.
