KOH NAKA NOI

9 miles from Boat lagoon

KOH NAKA NOI. 8°01.754N, 98°27.452E

The best anchorage is in 5-10 metres to the south of the access jetty on the mid-west coast. Keep well clear of the rocks on the north side of Naka Noi if approaching between Naka Yai and Naka Noi. Keep Koh Phae to port if coming from the south. When heading north from this anchorage, beware of a rock — visible only at very low tides — on the direct line of the passage between Koh Raet and Koh Naka Noi. once clear of the channel, steer well offshore to avoid a second reef, seldom visible at any tide.

Koh Naka Noi is known as Pearl island because of the cultured pearls grown on its northeastern coast. educational demonstrations on pearl farming techniques are given twice daily. There is a seafood restaurant for lunches only at the pearl farm and a souvenir shop selling pearls at a discount. An admission fee is levied for going ashore via the jetty. The beach on the north is great at high tide.
