About Racha Islands

Racha Islands or Raya Islands are best-known beaches for outstanding diving and snorkelling activity. Located 12 km south of Phuket, Racha Islands comprise two islands, Koh Racha Yai and Koh Racha Noi. Koh Raya Yai means big, and Koh Raya Noi means little. The islands boast of crystal clear waters and white sandy shores. The place is a very popular destination for divers and snorkellers. There are challenging dive sites for advanced divers as well as plenty for beginners and snorkelers. Racha Yai is a hub of all beach activities and is mostly crowded whereas Racha Noi is uninhabited and has no services or accommodation, but there's some great diving in the area.

Pro Tip: Accommodation is only available at Koh Raya Yai and not at Koh Racha Noi
