If you want to get away from the crowds, visit Playa Conchal, where the comfortable waters make for easy swimming and snorkeling.

Take a ferry for a day trip to the Phi Phi Islands, where three expansive panoramas of the twin bays Tonsai and Loh Dalum are breathtaking to see atop Phi Phi Don, especially at sunset.
