Koh Racha Overview

The Racha or Raya islands, some 12 km south of Phuket, are best known as excellent diving and snorkeling day trip destinations. RachaYai, however, is quickly developing into a place to stay for a while with several bungalow and resort operations springing up in recent years.

Visitors can indulge in a variety of water activities, including snorkeling and diving, to explore the vibrant marine life that thrives in the surrounding coral reefs. For those seeking a perfect tropical escape, Thailand holiday packages often include Koh Racha as a must-visit destination. The island's tranquil ambiance, coupled with luxurious resorts and stunning landscapes, makes it an ideal choice for travelers looking to unwind and experience the beauty of Thailand's islands.

Things to Do: The water here is clear and perfect for snorkeling, though the bay gets quite busy with visiting boats in the afternoons. The other large bay, Ao Siam, is a pretty place where visitors can bask in the tropical forest.

Getting There: Long-tail and speedboat transfer is the easiest way to travel from Chalong Pier or Rawai, and the trip takes from 45 minutes to more than an hour depending on the boat.
