Raya (Racha) & Coral Island Tour by Speed Boat
The Racha (or Raya) islands, some 12 km south of Phuket, are best known as excellent diving and snorkeling daytrip destinations. The water here is clear and perfect for snorkeling, though the bay gets quite busy with visiting boats in the afternoons. The other large bay, Ao Siam, is a pretty place where lonely strolls in solitude are possible.
Coral Island, known locally as Koh Hae, is a beautiful getaway destination located three kilometers southeast of Phuket. The island features two main beaches, Long Beach and Banana Beach.
