17 miles from Yacht haven
Situated halfway down the west coast of Koh Yao Yai, Ao Labu is easily recognised as the bay directly east of the twin stack islands of Koh Sup. Coming from the south the channel between Koh Nui and the headland is deep (5 metres) right up until the concrete jetty on the headland.
In the southwest season there is good overnight anchorage in 4-5 metres behind the small island of Koh Nui or anywhere close to the jetty out of the swell. Don\’t venture south of the jetty head since the bank dries. Behind the corrugated iron community is a wide creek with excellent dinghy exploration.
If coming from the north beware of the rocky outcrop a half mile north of Koh Nui and just visible at low tide.
