Koh Yao Noi island (little long island) is one of the two largest islands in Phang Nga Bay; the other one being its sister island, Koh Yao Yai. Koh Yao Noi is located just 10 kilometers south of Phang Nga province and 28 km. directly east of the Phuket International Airport (HKT). This island is closer to the Nong Talay sub district of Krabi Province, which is only 12 km. east. The island is shaped like a woman’s boot, and is approximately 11 km. long and 3.5 km. wide – much bigger than both the Koh Phi Phi islands, but only half the size of the larger Koh Yao Yai.
Boats to Koh Yao Noi leave multiple times daily: speedboats leave from Rassada Pier near Koh Sirey on the east side of Phuket; and Ao Chalong Pier has speedboats and long tail boats as well. To reach Rassada Pier from Patong Beach, travel on Highway 4029 over the mountain toward Phuket Town and then to Anuphas Phuket Karn Road down to Rassada Pier.
