Thai Island Paradise
Koh Yao Noi and Koh Yao Yai are two islands located in the middle of Phang-nga bay, far from the chaos of Phuket. Though gaining popularity, these islands are still relatively quiet and untouched in comparison to their nearby counterparts. Koh Yao Noi is a beautiful island paradise surrounded by gorgeous green water in every direction. Great for snorkeling and days on the boat, it’s a perfect place to sit back, relax, and enjoy the island life. Small limestone islands jut out of the bay and create both a perfect backdrop and an excellent spot to hop in a kayak and go for an adventure. Mangrove forests line the west coast of the island and lush green trees inhabit the interior. Yao Noi boasts great beaches on shallow bays in all directions that are great for morning walks and dipping your toes in the water. This is a great spot to leave from to see some of Thailand’s most famous southern landmarks, such as the Hong islands and James Bond island (made famous by yes, you guessed it, a James Bond movie)! Kick back and relax on this quiet, blissful Thai island.
