Five Islands Longtail SUP Tour

Come paddling with us on the Virgin Coast of Samui.  There’s not much here except for long sandy beaches, clear water, sleepy fishing villages, a few private villas and a couple of resorts. Most tourists don’t even realise this peaceful side of Samui exists.

The Five Islands are known as Koh Si Koh Ha in Thai, which translates to Four Islands-Five Islands because one of the islands is hidden behind the other.  The islands are about 5km offshore from Taling Ngam beach, in South West corner of Koh Samui.  The islands are known for their famous nests which are the main ingredient in birds’ nest soup.  The only inhabitants out here are the Sea Gypsies who live in small wooden homes perched on the rocky islands and protect the birds.

Long Tail SUP Tour to Five Islands

We start the tour with a private Longtail boat out to the Five Islands.  If the conditions are good we will paddle around the Five Islands and maybe you’ll see the local turtle.  We can make a visit to the nearby islands of Koh Taen for snorkelling and Koh Matsum for paddle boarding and swimming.  On the way back you can paddle along one of the most beautiful coastlines of Samui, often referred to as the ‘Virgin Coast’.
