Here we present a series of Google Earth Images of Marinas and anchorages to be found in S.E. Asia.(Also Northern Australia)

One word of caution :- watch you see may be old - it all depends on when the images were acquired .

Each week one or more images will be presented with the test :-

1. Where is this - give the GPS coordinates ?

2.What is it called ?

3.How do the facilities rate for cruisers on a scale of 10 ?

Any stories regarding incidents etc. in this facility or anchorage would be welcome

The Yacht Haven 0810.2'N 9820.5'E

At the north end of the island, this lovely marina makes up for what it lacks in maintenance facilities with peace and tranquility, and few mosquitoes. It is the island's largest marina in terms of berths and has easy access to the starkly beautiful cruising grounds of Phang Nga Bay.

While the marina has all-tide access via buoyed channel (minimum depth 2.5 metres) separating Phuket from mainland, yachts should be wary of the strong tidal steam, and wait for a slack tide to enter or leave the marina. Note that tides here are about 1:45 hours behind the tidal predictions for Koh Thaphao Noi.

If arriving after office hours, arrange in advance for assistance. Or anchor just to the north of the marina and wait until morning. Marina is 15 minutes from Phuket airport (taxi 200-300 baht) and a 40-minute drive to Phuket town (500-600 baht). By sea, it's about five hours north of Ao Chalong.


158 wet berths for vessels up to 20 metres

dockage space for superyachts 40 metres plus

floating docks accessed by locked gates

24-hour security

toilets and showers a short walk from docks

220-volt power supply to berths

water to berths is spring fed and safe to drink

fuel dock, or delivered to your berth

three restaurants/pubs nearby

Internet access, but no plugs for laptops

mail holding

full-service laundry (by the kilo)

taxi service

car and motorbike rental

Looks like one could really get a workout by mooring at the end tie.
