(3.6/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Well known by divers for its crystal clear waters, Koh Racha Yai boasts picture-perfect beaches and a gorgeous underwater scene. If diving is your game, explore the huge, delightful coral reefs around the island, or head to Ter Bay for a shipwreck dive. Those that like to stay near the surface can snorkel around and view abundant marine life and colorful coral formations--just take care to not step on the reef. Sun loungers are available for rent if you prefer to relax, and the beaches rarely get crowded.

  • The most beautiful memories were made here. the best place for snorkeling and for diving . i wish i had a hotel in this island. 
  • This island will forever remain in my memory! Arriving there, we regret that it has not done this before! Insanely beautiful water, clean sand! And most importantly-not a lot of people, when compared to Maya Bay, and beauty to the well-known Bay! An ideal place for secluded relaxation, which really wanted after active recreation in Phuket and Phi Phi. Go without hesitation and at least 2 days! We were just 1 day, could no longer take because of the coming departure. If you had to choose between Phi Phi or Raca, I would chose the second option
