Koh Yao Noi

Located between Phuket and Krabi, a visit to Koh Yao Noi is a step back in time. The unspoiled island has been recognised worldwide for the conservation of local culture and tradition. Koh Yao Noi consists of pristine beaches, knotted forest and virgin coastline which offers a great vantage point for relaxing and absorbing the beautiful scenery around the bay. While Hat Yao and Buddha Beach are world-class, pristine beaches, there are also plenty of exciting dirt trails to explore by motorbike!

Ideally situated to offer a front-row view of Phang Nga Bay’s karst cathedrals, Koh Yao Noi is also a well-placed base from which to explore tropical kayaking destinations earlier in the day before the crowds from Phuket envelope them. Dive into the native way of life with local agricultural demonstrations at one of the rubber plantations or fishing villages and learn how money was made in this region prior to tourism becoming a mainstay.

Labelled the most up-and-coming destination in southern Thailand, Koh Yao Noi is the ideal holiday location for those seeking a unique and private refuge. Being a small island with big aspirations, there are countless reasons guests escape to Koh Yao Noi. The pace of life is slow and peaceful and the native population are renowned for their friendliness. Along with countless other unique Thai experiences, the golden-sands at Loh Paret, spectacular boating scene at Loh Jark and rich coral reefs at King Cruiser Wreck make Koh Yao Noi a highly sought-after holiday destination.
