Racha Island Tour by Speed Boat (Raya Island)
The Racha Island or Raya Island is the west coast of this Island boasts a fine beach sheltered by hills that stretch away from it like the two arms of a horseshoe. The pristine sands are sparkling and clean and crystal water from the top of hill on the bay's douth is a viewing point from which the whole island can be seen. On the eastern side, at Ao Kon Kae Bay, is a coral reef which offers excellent diving.
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.
