#3 of 11 in Nature in Phuket
Island Nature / Park
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. Plan to see Koh Racha Yai and other attractions that appeal to you using our Ko Racha Yai itinerary builder.
