What people are saying:

The emperor island is 12 kilometers south of Phuket. The speedboat takes about 30-40 minutes. Compared with other popular or less popular attractions in Phuket, the emperor island is a very new face. Not only is the island beautiful and complete natural tropical island scenery, the reef's coast scenery is also memorable. Due to the late development, there are fewer tourists here, compared with the noisy Phuket, the beach environment is very quiet, only sporadic swimmers, surf fans and ear-cutters to the sound of waves, it is a paradise!

Additional Information

Introduction

“Racha” means “emperor” in the local language. Originally an exclusive holiday island of the Thai royal family, it was later opened to the public. There are 5 small beaches on Racha Yai Island: Ter Bay and Lha Bay to the east, Kon Kare Bay to the southeast, Patok Bay to the west and Siam Bay to the north. This is a good place for snorkeling. The water temperature is just right and the waves are relatively small. The beach line is quite long. The fish seen in different snorkeling places on the island are different too. Compared to the boisterousness of Phuket, the environment here is exceptionally quiet.
