"To truly appreciate the serene beauty of Maiton Island when visiting Phuket, make sure to take a snorkeling tour early in the morning before the crowds arrive; the water clarity is phenomenal, and you'll have a better chance to spot a variety of marine life. Don't miss out on a hike across the island for a panoramic view of the Andaman Sea, and if you're lucky, you may even spot some dolphins playing in the water."

Maiton is one of the private-owned Islands in Phuket. Unlike all the other well-known tropical islands around Phuket, Maiton-also known as Honeymoon Island-is only 9 kilometers (29,527.6 feet) off the southeastern coast of Phuket.T here is a limitation in accessing this Island, which means you have to make arrangements to get there.
