Cruising around Koh Samui provides a unique opportunity to go sailing during the Southeast monsoon period from June to September.

WorldSouth East AsiaThailandKo Samui

An online cruising guide for yachts sailing to Ko Samui, Thailand.

Map of Ko Samui and nearby islands

Koh Samui is Thailand’s self-styled Boutique Island, with it’s ‘coconut’ feel, it offers an abundance of high end spa’s, restaurants and every imaginable luxury.

The Ko Samui Cruising area includes the Islands of Ko Pha Ngan, well known for its edgy full moon parties and the Island of Ko Tao, a world-renowned diving destination. Also close by is the virtually unheard of island group of the Ang Thong Marine Park which rivals the beauty of Phanga Bay, one of the must see highlights of the Phuket cruising area.

Cruising the region

Given the popularity of Koh Samui you would be mistaken to expect hundreds of yachts cruising the area, in fact at the time of this writing there is less than 30 yachts sailing in the area and only a handful of those are a available for charter.

Cruising around Koh Samui provides a unique opportunity to go sailing during the Southeast monsoon period from June to September. This is a time when the conditions in both Phuket and Ko Chang are untenable, providing those in the northern hemisphere the opportunity to go sailing in Asia during their summer holiday and for those on the south an opportunity to leave the winter behind and head to the tropics.
