The last stop of my Phi Phi Islands one day tour is “Relax on Khai Island”, that’s what the tour guide told us. We spent like an hour at this little island, called Khai Nok Island in the middle of nowhere. The island is quite small with a little green and big piece of ivory sandy beach. Relaxing chairs and umbrella shades were on the beach.
We got off the boat and there’s cut watermelon prepared and waited for us on the beach. It’s free for us, according to the tour guide but in fact, it’s what we paid for. Haha.
Ate a lot of watermelon, looked for a couple of chairs for dad and mom and to the water I was. The chair here cost us 150baht per chair, it’s the same price on Patong Beach.
Ice cream man will come and sell us ice cream like every 20 minutes. There’s a few of them at the beach and we did not buy any although it’s hot. We got ourselves some cool juice instead.
I went into the crystal clear turquoise water, put on my swimming paddle, trying to swim but it was difficult. The water is pretty but it’s a bad place for swimming or snorkelling. The water is too shallow for over 20 meter stretch out to the sea and after that, it’s too deep for diving too. It’s just not a good place for anything in the water. Only pro goes diving in the deep, I am not and it’s was meant to be snorkelling to me, but there’s nothing to see.
The bottom fills with lots of rocks and it cuts. I went out to the far end but not the deep place because there’s a coral barrier and I did not dare to go over it.
Spent like 20 minutes in the water and I went up to take a walk around the beach for some photo.
There’s nothing much on this small island, it’s really very small. There’s a little hut where drinks are sell and can hear some of the tourist singing karaoke at there. It’s just sunbathing, napping, reading, taking photos like me and waiting the time to pass and get back onto the boat.
It was low tide when we were going off, the boat have already moved out far and we have to walk across the water and my mom was screaming all the way because she don’t like to be wet. Haha, I was afraid too, of my camera, I can’t imagine that if it gets wet.
And, off we go from Khai Island.
