Raya Island

Raya Island

Raya Island also known as Racha or Raja Island (Raya meaning "King").  Phi Phi Island is well known as the queen of Andaman Sea and therefore Raya Island is the king of Andaman Sea.   For those who are looking for peace and quiet, this is the island for you!  Far away from the hectic crowds, it's about 20 kilometers south of Phuket.  It's truely a tropical paradise with white, sandy beaches and crystal clear blue water.  There are 2 Islands: Koh Racha Yai (Yai meaning "big") and Koh Racha Noi (Noi meaning "small").  Koh Raya Noi is bout 20 minutes away by speedboat.  

If scuba diving is your thing you will love it here.  If you just want to snorkel you can do that too.

Racha Yai, about 1½ hours South of Phuket is a beautiful tropical island with plenty of hard coral reefs, colourful shallow water coral gardens, and a great opportunity for some enjoyable and easy drift diving. There are several excellent dive sites suitable for the beginner and for snorkeling, with depths from 2 - 20m, making this island a favourite destination for everyone.

Racha Noi, another 45 minutes South of Koh Racha Yai, offers some truly spectacular dive sites with giant underwater boulders, great visibility and scenery almost like the Similan Islands. Currents here can be strong, and the dives are recommended for advanced divers only. There is deep water around the island, so you often see large pelagic visitors such as barracudas, eagle rays, marbled stingrays and there is a chance of encounters with manta rays.
