Description [Suggest Change]

Ao Nui, or Nui Bay, has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. A small white sand beach, a beautiful coral reef covered by the most clear water you have ever seen, all surrounded by limestone. This is why you came to Thailand!

A large pillar hosts several multipitch climbs that start right above the water, and a small limestone island across the bay has a dozen deep water solo routes to play on.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Most of the longtail boats, and all of the ones run by climbing shops, live in Tonsai Bay. This bay is on the opposite side of the island, making it a longer and more expensive trip. You could get a boat from Lodalum Bay on the north of the island, but there is no guarantee that the boatman will really understand what you need.

You need a good boatman here. The bay is shallow and the waves can get big in a hurry. You jump from the boat right onto a rock pillar, so you and the boatman need to be on the same page. You will also need to do a 60 meter rappel into the longtail at the end of the day, so make sure your boatman hangs around.
