Phuket Town (Muang District)

Raya Island:
Two islands running roughly northeast to southwest off Phuket's southern coast.


Raya Yai Island:
On the west coast is a fine beach closed in by the hills that stretch away from it like two arms of a horseshore called alternately Ao Tawan Tok or Ao Bungalow. The sands are sparkling clean and the waters crystal clear like those of the Similan Islands. From the top of a hill on the bay's south is a view point from which the whole island can be seen. On the east, at Ao Kon Kae Bay, is a coral reef where diving is excellent.

Raya Noi Island:
This island, 10 kms. from Koh Raya Yai, is the result of coral reef build up, and there are more rocks then beaches. In a small bay on the west is a boat anchorage. The waters at Koh Raya Noi are emerald green, and fishing is famous, but swimming is not advised.

    • To get there: contact a charter boat at Ao Chalong or Rawai, or go to a travel agent for details on package tours to the islands. By long-tailed boat, the travel time is about two hours. Larger boats operated by tour companies will make the trip in about one hour. Travel to the Racha islands is restricted to the dry season and periods when the monsoon is not blowing.

Koh Rahng Yai:
Lying off Phuket's east coast, this small island has been developed for the out-of-doors minded tourist. Among the many activities are sea kayaking, mountain-biking, playing miniature golf, and visiting the island's pearl farm. For travel to Koh Rahng Yai, boats may be hired from Laem Hin Pier, just outside Phuket Town before the town of Sapam or from Phuket boat Lagoon.
