15 miles from ao Chalong
This is another very popular day trip destination for speedboat package tours from Phuket. The small islet offers a great daytime anchorage in 8-10 metres off the sandy point to the northeast.
Snorkelling and diving are best on the seaward edge of the fringing reef on the northeast side the island.
There’s also an all-tide access beach on this end of the island. Alternatively, good overnight anchorage can be found anywhere on the West Coast of Koh Yao Yai when the northeast monsoon prevails.
At the time of posting, most of the moorings had become tangled with the remnants of the broken floating jetty. The island was deserted and without former basic amenities.
