Koh Racha Yai, Ko Racha Yai

4.0
#3 of 11 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.

    ดำแค่ไหนก็ยอม I couldn't believe that Phuket has a beautiful island like this! Alright, being an island far from the mainland beach, you must get there by boat and have a day trip. But a day trip here is worth a visit if you don't like Patong beach that's full of scums and garbage.

    Beautiful, very suitable for scuba diving international, a lot enough. Should I go to eat Roti but the price is quite high.
