Phuket | island life

Bye Phuket

After 2 nights in Phuket main island, we were off to another island on the 3rd day. Nago Noi (Naka Noi) island.

Here we come, Naka Noi

We took a boat in Ao Por Pier to the island. Ao Por Pier itself was impressive with the jetty protruding to the ocean.

It would take a long time if we were to walk with our luggages and stuff along the pier. Luckily they have a cart transport for our conveniences.

Luggages and 2 days supplies!

Naka Noi is a serene island with magnificient seaview and we were privileged to be invited to stay in the 4 bedrooms villa. The island is just 4km away from northeast of Phuket island. The boat ride took less than 10 minutes.

Where we disembark in the island

From the beach where we disembarked, we had a little walk along the beach to the villa on top of a little hill.

The villa

Our 2-nights stay in the rustic styled villa was overlooking the beach. No internet, no phone line and no tv. Totally away from the technology for 2 nights. Just enjoy and relax in villa with a short walk to the beach.

Our room with a view to die for!

Evening came fast on us

Dinner of seafood

We had a quick fun on the beach with kids making sandcastles and we went for a cold dip with strong waves hitting us. The high tide was getting on to us.

The next day, we went for a little walk around the island. Of course more water, sun and sand. The men went for island hopping and fishing. Kids and some of the ladies (including me) stayed for an afternoon siesta.

Me, absorbing everything!

Nice serenity

Phi Phi island from far. Can you see the famous James Bond rocks on the left??

Fun on beach

Waiting for a bite

Thankfully the men came back with some fishes for dinner!! Lol. We cooked it Chinese style.

The catches of the day!

And our dinner was enjoyed under the supermoon. Covered by the clouds; so hard to take shot of it. Otherwise it would be bright shining over the water.

Moon gazing

We had a relaxing and lazy time on the island. Feeling the sun, sand and water all the time. Gosh. Now I wish for an island life when I retire at old age. ^^

Love the look of all the food. Thai, simply the best! I prefer the cool highlands though - any plans to fly to Chiengmai soon?

Rose World said...

So nice! I love taking a boat ride when the water is gentle.

What a fun and wonderful holiday on an island! It is good to be away from the internet, TV, etc., just enjoying one another's company like the old days!

Libby said...

I am a handphone addict, so I cannot imagine without wi-fi :P

Thanks for sharing the photos, very beautiful beaches.

The food looks good.

Libby said...

Don't mind if I ask any mosquitoes or ants inside the room, I remembered when I went Krabi, I also stayed in a hotel near the woods and there were red ants, mosquitoes and worms inside the room, so scary

Rose World said...

Only mosquitoes. They have netting on their sliding doors but still, mosquitoes can fly into the room. Luckily no other insects.

Yannie said...

So nice! I can't wait for my holiday in Thailand too.

Merryn said...

This looks like so much fun. I could use some internet detox sometimes. I don't know if I will survive it but it's good to try. Haha.

That is a lot of stuffs in the boat for two days. The fish cooked chinese style looks so good.

Sharon D said...

The best kind of holiday, Rose. Chilling by the beach with an awesome view and great company. Totally envying the fresh fish you guys cooked for dinner! So hard to come by when we don't live near the sea. :D

Twilight Man said...

What a fabulous place!! Looks like heavens to me by the ocean. This is a bliss to be away from internet and your family could relax totally. I love to laze on that big chairs with a book to read all day.
