Thailand Phuket islands Maiton island

Koh Maiton is a peaceful island tucked away in the crystal blue waters of the Andaman Sea. It is the last private island with an untouched nature among Phuket archipelago, only 30 minutes by boat from Phuket. Complete with a soft-sand beach full of stunning washed-up corals, seashells and a verdant, natural forest. Only a handful of boats are allowed to disembark on Maiton island each day.

The waters surrounding Maiton island are abundant with marine life. Some even compare it with Koh Lipe as the Maldives of Thailand. During December-May, the sea around Koh Maiton is crystal clear like a blue mirror. There is a coral reef near the beach full of sea flowers, while dolphins can be spotted roaming around often. Besides, Maiton Island is also the point where the marine species conservation center uses tiger clams to breed in front of the island. It has been a coral conservation project for many years. It is always a good idea to dive Maiton Island and its underwater treasures.
