Koh Raya - A Most Beautiful Destination
The islands of Koh Raya have been an almost exclusive paradise for diving and sailing for years!
Our next sailing destination is Koh Racha Yai (เกาะราชาใหญ่) and Koh Racha Noi (เกาะราชาน้อย), two beautiful islands just off the south-east coast of Phuket island. Koh Racha, also known as Koh Raya offers crystal clear blue waters. The islands have been an almost exclusive paradise for diving and sailing for years! Koh Raya lies due south of Phuket; approximately 20 kilometers as the crow flies; a comfortable day’s cruise for a sailing catamaran. With Racha Yai’s white sand beaches and expanding accommodations, Racha Yai is growing in popularity year for year.
The focus of the island is Batok Beach which is where most of the visiting boats and sailing yachts choose to anchor. At the focus of this perfect, soft, sandy beach is the Racha Resort. This luxury hotel is popular with visitors as a place to lunch or stopover for the night when they are sailing south of Phuket. The underwater visibility is normally around 30 meters or more which makes it a great place for scuba diving and snorkeling. A bit further to the south is Racha Noi which also offers some great dive sites to discover.
