Racha Noi Island
Racha Noi Island, PhuketKoh Racha Noi is located 26 kilometers directly south of Phuket Island Promthep Cape, in the Andaman Sea. Its sister, Koh Racha Yai, sits just 8 kilometers north-northeast. Racha Noi comprises two islands within swimming distance of each other. The northernmost island is 3.5 kilometers long and 400 meters wide, while the one below is 3 kilometers long and about 100 meters wide.
Because of the long distance from the main island, long-tail boat rides are not available. Therefore, a speedboat trip is the only option tourists have to get to this group of islands! Boats leave daily from Ao Chalong Pier on Phuket east coast when the weather is good.
Ao Chalong Pier sits just east of Phuket Town. From Patong Beach, take Highway 4029 east. Travel time on the water is about 30-45 minutes. If you want to visit both Koh Racha Noi and Racha Yai, make it clear with the booking agency!
