Blockbuster movies have turned Phang Nga Bay into an icon of the mysterious and fantastical. It inspired the look of Kashyyk in Star Wars and most notably featured the iconic duel between James Bond and Scaramanga in ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’ – resulting in the needle shaped limestone rock being named after the international spy himself. Since then, ‘James Bond Island’ and the surrounding isles have become popular charter destinations.
If you want to explore Phang Nga Bay as seen on the silver screen, then a private yacht charter is the only way to truly recreate the romance and excitement. Asia Marine’s flagship day charter yacht “Mija” is the first ever Galeon 460Fly power boat to arrive in Phuket fitted with many innovative features and gadgets befitting of a secret agent.
Her automatic bow settee area can swiftly be changed into a sundeck while the aft cockpit rotating-seat is everyone’s favourite feature for sunset cocktails. While moored, the bulwarks drop down into wing-like extensions creating a open cockpit offering unparalleled freedom for water games — we call it “Beach Mode” and it’s perfect for families.
There are many other destinations to visit if you are feeling adventurous. Just beyond the bay are vibrant, turquoise seas with towering karst islands formed thousands of years ago. They dot the bay, some 300 meters tall, unspoilt due to their protected status; resulting in unique and awe-inspiring views unlike anywhere else.
Extend your trip to Railay Beach, the ultimate gym for rock-climbing fanatics where fairytale limestone formations come to a dramatic climax along a golden beach. Or, motor to PhiPhi Island with stunningly beautiful bays including the famous “Maya Bay” where they filmed the blockbuster “The Beach”.
Wherever you choose to cruise, you will never look back from the moment the private limousine transfer arrives at your door, knowing you have made the right choice. Once you reach your ideal spot, the Mija’s friendly crew ensure you are worry free while you snorkell in the shallows with a myriad of tropical fish at Koh Kai island or zooming around in the tender amongst the limestone spires.
