Hong Island

Hong Island (Koh Hong) is in the Andaman Sea and is much closer to Krabi province than to Phuket Island. This small island is less than 1 kilometer long in any direction, and the main section is shaped like a dog leg. Hong Island is just 7 kilometers to the west of Krabi’s Nong Talay sub district, and can be reached by long tail boat from one of Krabi’s nearby beaches. With Krabi on the east, to the west is Koh Yao Noi and Koh Yao Yai, equidistant – about 7 km. from both.

Tourists, with a starting point from Patong Beach on Phuket Island, can take the highway over through Phuket Town, up highway 4027, and on to Ao Por Pier on the northeast coast of Phuket. Speedboat tours leave daily, when the weather is nice, and the trip is about 35 kilometers if going directly, but there are other island stops on most tours from Phuket.
