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 

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.
