Frost Island is in the ‘Mid-Group’ of the Mergui Archipelago, a chain of roughly 800 islands that lies to the west of southern Myanmar in the Andaman Sea. Most of the archipelago is still largely undiscovered by tourism and many islands are as yet undeveloped. Tiny Frost Island in particular is known for large fig trees growing right on the beach and hundreds of hermit crab residents on its powdery white-sand beaches. The Salone people (known as Moken in Thailand and Malaysia and as Sea Gypsies in English) are the only human inhabitants of this area. A chance to meet them and see their unique boat designs is always a possibility. Frost Island is also rich in options for diving and snorkeling amongst schools of brightly colored tropical fish thanks to the surrounding coral reefs, clear waters, and a long sandy beach on the northern shore.
