During rainy season, be prepared for rough waters during your boat ride i.e. take motion sickness pills. My daughter and I had an enjoyable ride (think about riding on a wooden roller coaster x10). Once you get there, the snorkeling was fun but I preferred...More

Lots and lots of day-trip Chinese tourists on the front beach! They were so noisy and impolite. We couldn't have relax time on the beach. We came here before about 7-8 years ago...but that time it was so relax and peaceful, not many day-trip. The...More

We did a day trip here last month. The water was incredibly blue green and crystal clear. Lots of fish and wildlife which made for great snorkeling but there were so many people from all the speed boats. Lots of Chinese tourists and kids peeing...More

Koh Racha Yai is underrated and we are really glad we chose to come here. Previously been to Phi Phi Islands and Maya Bay but Koh Racha Yai beats them hands down. Clear blue water, soft sandy beach, clean toilets, ample space because it wasn't...More
