Even though Coconut Island, also known as Koh Maphrao in Thai (the word maphrao means coconut) is the nearest point to Phuket at only 750 meters, the atmospheres on the two islands are considerably different.

Phuket is well-known for its extensive array of tourist attractions, tourist amenities, and vibrant way of life, whereas Coconut Island is a much more tranquil island surrounded by nature. The two primary industries on the island were farming and fishing. The center region of the island is home to rubber trees, as well as native fruits and vegetables. Two sizable resorts have also opened up new job prospects for the people of Coconut Island.

The Coconut Island Village

Though The Village has a laid-back vibe, you don’t have to slow down altogether. In addition to many exciting activities like mountain biking, sailing, kayaking, Thai cooking classes, spa treatments, and boat tours, they provide a variety of upscale eateries and pubs.

Floating Restaurants

Coconut Island Phuket Thailand 2024_Floating RestaurantThe floating restaurants in Phuket, known as krachang in Thai, are an exciting opportunity to eat seafood while taking in views of the ocean and try something new. Though they frequently purchase live seafood from other fisherman, these floating eateries in Phuket are typically owned and operated by nearby fish farmers.

Fish, crabs, and prawns abound in the enclosures made of floating wood and net. Between the enclosures, you can stroll along the planks and select the seafood you like to eat. Before placing an order, inquire about the costs of certain seafood items, such as mantis shrimp, as they might be pricey.
