From Phuket south to the border with Malaysia is a lesser known—but no less scenic—area with numerous islands to
cruise around. Do not neglect the much indented coast, where there are small fishing villages. offshore some of the islands are inhabited and in this area you will be likely to see families of sea gypsies. The water in this area is clearer for snorkelling and diving, although if you want really clear water, you will need to sail around the outside of Phuket and northward to the Similan Islands.
