About Ko Racha Yai, Phuket

The turquoise waters of this coral jewel to the south of Phuket are an undisputed marine paradise. There is not much to do on the island itself, for the beaches are rocky with only some areas of powdery white sand, and most of the area are underdeveloped. There are paths criss-crossing it which you can take from beach to beach, passing coconut groves, with a hilltop with views to the south of the island. But what you’re really here for is the snorkelling and scuba diving, for the waters are rich with marine life. Swimming in the bays can be fun so long you are mindful of the boats coming in and out all the time. There are a number of places to stay, and the island has a small village where you can purchase daily necessities.

Ko Racha Yai, Phuket Reviews

  • Very nice place to visit for one day for swimming and snorkelling. There is many boats going there on daily bases. You can also try scuba diving if you adventurous enough. Stand up paddle is nice choice too.

  • Can't believe we spend nearly 2 hours of boat ride to get here. The water is indeed very clear so you can see clearly that coral is all dead and there are only a few fish swimming by.

  • I chosed diving with Dive Cove Diving shop in Phuket, very fun

  • Nice resorts but unfortunately they release the sewage water in the sea killing the coral reefs. More needs to be done to protect the fragile environment surrounding the island.

  • Wonderful white sand and blue water!!!😍😍😍 very quite island☀️🌴
