Located 84 kilometres from Patong beach, Similan islands are widely known as one of the best diving sites in the world. The best time to take up a day cruise to Similan Islands is from December to April when the water is clearer and the atmosphere is more cheerful. The most popular way of cruising in Similan islands is live boards but if you are planning for a one day trip, an average cruise would serve your purpose of island hopping, exploring diving sites and return to the mainland. Every Phuket beach resort in the island is relaxing, enticing and comforting. If you are looking for a luxury Phuket resort one of the top choices you have in store is Anantara Phuket Resort Thailand.
