The main activities here are scuba diving and snorkelling. Racha Yai’s east coast has a bay that is fine for diving even during the rainy-season. Visibility can be as as good as 30m.
Racha Noi is more suited to experienced divers as the sites are at greater depths. There are some sites where larger marine creatures, manta rays in particular, are regularly spotted.
Travelling to the Racha Islands
Day-trips are organised by tour operators and can be arranged at a travel agent. If you want to stay overnight, boats can be chartered from Rawai or Chalong Pier. The journey time is about 2 hours in a long-tail boat, though speedboats may make the journey in 1 hour.
Back in our happy place with our newest purchase thanks to @afterpay.it 🏖
After hitting the road again we kept our set up simple but were thinking about what we really wanted for our lap this time around. We spend so much time on the coast and in the sunshine that we couldn’t go past getting a beach umbrella for our next journey around Aus.
We love checking out with Afterpay for all of our online shopping while on the road, it allows us to make purchases without the stress of paying upfront - it’s the perfect solution for the full time traveller 👌🏼 #afterpayit#ad
