Maiton Island is a small island located in the southeast part of Thailand, forming part of the Chumphon Archipelago. It attracts travelers from around the world with its unusual and memorable history.

What is Koh Maiton famous for?

Maiton Island was once a private island owned by Korean businessmen. They bought the island and built a luxurious hotel on it, imposing a strict prohibition on excursions to Maiton Island. Only celebrities such as stars, politicians, athletes, businessmen, and other celebrities could access the island. The island retains several helipads and berths for private yachts, which global celebrities have utilized for years to reside in one of the numerous bungalows dotting the coastline.

Everything changed in 2004 when a major earthquake in the Indian Ocean destroyed the hotel, and its owners decided to cease business operations. Since then, Maiton has been open for excursions but strives to maintain its familiar privacy and originality. Firstly, due to its late opening, Maiton has not developed compared to other major tourist islands. This makes it attractive to those seeking a laid-back and natural holiday. Secondly, Maiton is a protected area of marine wildlife due to the prevalence of dolphins, sea turtles, and various fish species in its waters. In order to safeguard the island's nature and beaches, there is a restriction on the simultaneous number of tourists. Let's delve into how to secure a spot within that limit.

Programs and prices for excursions to Maiton Island:

Maiton Island tour includes departure from Phuket Island, transfer from the hotel to the departure pier and back, the presence of an English-speaking guide, and the rental of necessary snorkeling equipment.

Moreover, you can try an alternative form of transfer, similar to the format of a private Maiton island tour to the once-closed paradise place such as chartering a boat, catamaran, or yacht. Distinguished by its departure from conventional group tours, this cruise offers a unique sense of freedom — you have full control over the tour program, enabling you to personally organize the list of on-board activities and stops.
