If you're looking for a serene desert island paradise in Thailand, consider visiting Krabi and Tubkaek Beach. Banyan Tree Krabi recently introduced a luxurious longtail boat ready to take guests on a calming journey across crystal-clear waters.
The White Pearl is a luxury boat created by local craftsmen in Krabi Province, using high-quality materials and custom modifications to ensure maximum comfort for guests. It is perfect for day trips and island hopping, accommodating up to eight passengers and offering a romantic getaway for couples. Visitors can enjoy a half-day trip to Koh Hong or a full-day "4 Islands Tour" in Hat Noppharat Thara-Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park.
Although the national marine park may not be a familiar name to many travellers, most will likely recognise the breathtaking limestone cliffs protruding from the Andaman Sea. These cliffs were made famous by the 1970s James Bond movie, The Man With the Golden Gun, and more recently in The Beach, featuring Leonardo di Caprio.
While places like Maya Beach and Ko Phi Phi have become increasingly popular among tourists, the 4 Islands have managed to avoid the crowds. These islands are uninhabited, except for sea birds, monkeys, and monitor lizards. The White Pearl anchors in these bays, offering guests the chance to swim and snorkel in peaceful, crystal-clear waters. The most famous of the four islands is Koh Hong, which faces Tubkaek Beach and is well-known for its volcanic lagoon in the centre of the island. It has provided Instagrammers and influencers with some of the most beautiful and iconic beach photos ever taken.
On the all-day trips with The White Pearl, you will be provided with fresh coconut, fruit, soft drinks, snorkelling equipment, life vests, toilets, and an English-speaking Boat Host.
If you're planing on visiting Krabi, Thailand, and looking for a mesmerise, exotic experience, then put Banyan Tree Krabi and the hotel's luxury longtail boat trip programmes into your consideration!
