KOH YAO NOI, NORTHWEST BAY. 8°11.058N, 98°37.484E

This is a pretty anchorage on the outer fringe of a deep bay backed by mangrove swamps and flat ground, offering protection in both seasons, with good holding on a muddy bottom. Anchor well out in the bay in 4-5 metres and allow enough swinging room to accommodate an onshore breeze.

Dinghy trips ashore are possible at high tide, where there is a beach with a few huts at the back of the bay and great trails either side of the creek. The bay dries a considerable distance from the beach at low tide so keep an eye on your timing – unless you want to do the dinghy drag.
