Ko Racha Yai - Review

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

  • Really beautiful island paradise. Take an arranged ferry from Phuket for a day trip there to swim, snorkel, surf and have some nice food. The beach is wonderful with very clear waters n fine sand. Waves can be strong pending the tide conditions n weather. There are some vendors n shops selling food n souvenirs. Must brings are sun cream, head gear, spare dry change of clothes, beach shoes, toiletries. Optionals are snorkeling gear, fishing gear, underwater cam! There are toilet facilities on the island which one can use for a small fee. Hot tip - don’t drink the tap water. It’s a beautiful place to spend a day by the beach. Should u wish to one can hire sea sports gear etc from vendors on the beach.

  • 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.

  • So beautiful beach and popular for tourist around the world to visit here

  • 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.

  • Beatiful island, clear water, white sand, good snorkel
