#4 of 16 in Nature in Phuket
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.

  • 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.
