    Koh Racha Yai also known as Raya island is a small island off the south coast of Phuket. Known for it's crystal clear blue waters and almost exclusive paradise for divers for years. Koh Racha Yai with its white sand beaches can be reached by speedboats from Phuket. Racha Yai is one of the nicest islands to simply get away from everything and relax. Water clarity and visibility is some of the best in Phuket. The water has a turquoise color and has a lot of marine life. The depths range from a few meters and deeper. The water is warm and inviting. Most snorkeling is done from speedboats. Once at Racha Yai your feet become your carriage. The island has a small network of dirt paths that link all of the beaches and resorts. You can easily walk from Ter Bay to Siam Beach and back again. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the beaches on the other side of the island. Walking around some of the island's pathways you will be treated to views of wonderful coconut groves and the occasional water buffalo grazing nearby. Large reptiles are by no means new to Koh Racha, there have been large Asian water monitors here for years. There are no snakes on the island cause Monitor Lizards are eating snakes. These male can be up to 3 meters long.

    The island of Racha is about 20 kilometers south of Phuket. The island has only a small commune. You will certainly appreciate this beautiful island! November to April is the best time for a visit to Koh Racha. June to October is the rainy season but it is still worth it. Photo of the beautiful Ter Bay where the speedboats return to Phuket.

    Koh Racha Yai, ook bekend als Raya-eiland, is een klein eiland voor de zuid kust van Phuket. Bekend om zijn kristalheldere blauwe water en bijna exclusief paradijs voor duikers. Koh Racha Yai met zijn witte zandstranden kan worden bereikt met speedboten vanuit Phuket. Racha Yai is één van de mooiste eilanden om gewoon weg te komen van alles en te ontspannen. Helderheid van het water en zichtbaarheid behoren tot de beste in Phuket. Het water heeft een turquoise kleur en heeft veel zeeleven. De diepten variëren van een paar meter en dieper. Het water is warm en uitnodigend. Meeste snorkelen wordt gedaan vanaf speedboten. Eénmaal bij Racha Yai worden je voeten je rijtuig. Het eiland heeft een klein netwerk van onverharde paden die alle stranden en resorts met elkaar verbinden. Je kunt gemakkelijk lopen van Ter Bay naar Siam Beach en weer terug. Het duurt ongeveer 15 minuten om naar de stranden aan de andere kant van het eiland te lopen. Wandelend langs enkele van de paden van het eiland wordt u getrakteerd op uitzichten op prachtige kokospalmen en af ​​en toe een grazende buffel in de buurt. Grote reptielen zijn absoluut niet nieuw voor Koh Racha er zijn hier al jaren grote Indische varanen. Er zijn geen slangen op het eiland omdat de watervaranen slangen eten. Het mannetje van de Indische varaan kan maximaal 3 meter lang worden. Foto van het Ter Bay strand. Hier vertrekken de speedboten terug naar Phuket.
