Right off the coast of Thailand in Phuket, you’ll find Naka Island. It’s only accessible by boat, so gettin there is half the fun. It’s right next door to Koh Naka Noi Island, where some of the rarest South Sea pearls are cultivated.
The water is clear, the sand is soft and it’s about as secluded as you can get. That means you’re trapped–forced to relax. I’m not good at beaches and relaxing, so it was good for me.
Although, we did find some bikes and explore.

Watching boats pass was one of the main forms of entertainment.
Tsunamis rarely occur in Thailand, but when they have, it’s been devastating. Signs like this could be found all around the island and in Phuket.

The odd plant is a baby durian. Stay far away from them. They taste great but they stink so bad that they are banned in most hotels.

Just carrying them around can release the smell. In Singapore there are signs almost everywhere threaten a S$500 fine for just entering a building with one.
