Raya Island, also known as Racha Island or King Island in Phuket is a wonderful oasis with crystal blue water, amazing marine life and quiet beaches. In fact one of the beaches of Raya Yai Island is home to the favorite restaurant of one of our owners.
If you are looking for a relaxing, beautiful, tranquil location with some amazing marine life then you can not look past Raya Island. Typically when visiting Raya Island you can choose to visit just Raya Yai or you can go on a little further to Raya Noi and then on the way home visit Mai Ton Island which is wel known for it’s Dolphin spotting.
It’s best to spot the Dolphins in the late afternoon as the sun is setting. The maiden voyage of the first 5 Star Marine Private Speedboat was out to Raya and we were lucky enough to see Dolphins on our cruise back to the pier.
