James Bond Island (Ko Khao Phing Kan)

Phuket, Southern Thailand and Andaman Coast

The Basics

Ko Khao Phing Kan (also known as Khao Phing Kan and, less formally, “James Bond Island”), is part of Ao Phang Nga National Park in Phang Nga Bay. The lush vegetation, turquoise water, and secluded ocean caves make it one of Thailand's top destinations.

Spend a day exploring the area on a boat tour: You can opt to get around in a luxurious speed boat, a traditional junk, or a longtail boat; go canoeing or kayaking around the limestone caves, mangrove forests, and beaches of Thalu Island and Khao Phing Kan; and visit the floating Muslim fishing village of Ko Panyi.

We actually worked with the same company to go to Coral and Racha Islands. It was a great experience. I appreciate them accommodating and changing the tour direction because of COVID.

Day Trip to James Bond Island by Premium Speedboat from Phuket
Awesome experience with the BB sea lion team. It was not our first trip to James Bond Island but would definitely be rated among the best. Pickup was on time, the tram very reactive beforehand (there was an hotel confusion when booking the trip, they replied and fixed within 15 min) and the team themselves were really great, clearly sparing no efforts. Special kuddos on behalf of our 6 years old who simply wanted to join the crew once the trip was over…

James Bond Island Canoeing 7 Point 5 Island By Speedboat From Phuket
Absolutely stunning! The most beautiful and incredible scenery mixed with outstanding Thai hospitality and a quick, cool speedboat. Couple of tips - don’t wear flip flops, beach shoes are the sound choice and make sure you have a waterproof bag for your smartphone. Bring the bare minimum of gear with you, you just won’t need it. The islands are so stunning, they don’t disappoint. The kayaking will have saying wow repeatedly.

Very relaxing trip on a big boat. You can move around freely and take pictures. Crew is very friendly and helpful. This review would be incomplete if I did not mention Tony. Speaks good English and takes care of every guest on board. Full marks to him and his team.

James Bond Island by Speedboat
Excellent Full day trip, picked up as promised, all the places as planned, speed boat was superb. Our guide was full of fun and very knowledgeable and the camera man worked so hard capturing our experiences without being intrusive. Lunch in the floating island was way better than expected. Would highly recommend this trip!

How to Get There

Due to the protected nature of the national park, visiting the islands independently is nearly impossible unless you have a permit and a private boat. There are, however, a number of tours to the area. Most depart from the marinas in Phuket and Krabi Noi. If you're traveling down from northern Thailand, opt for a tour leaving Phang Nga town.

Marine Life in the Bay

Due to shallow waters, and warm temperatures, and rich nutrients supplied by the nearby rivers and mangrove forests, Phang Nga Bay has abundant marine life. The waters around the islands are home to 26 species of reptiles and 24 species of fish, including butterfly fish, as well as lots of shrimp, crabs, manta rays, and sharks.
