Coral Island, PhuketCoral Island (Ko He – pronounced ‘hey’) is a 3.5 kilometer-long island from end-to-end.
Ko He doesn’t translate precisely like its English namesake in Thai. It means Crowded Island, and it is definitely that during some months of the year!
The island sits just 6 kilometers off the southern tip of Phuket Island at Promthep Cape.
Its closest neighbor in the Andaman Sea is Ko Aeo Island, just 1.6 kilometers to the northeast.
You can easily reach the island by taking a tour boat from Ao Chalong Pier on the island southeast side.
Boats depart every day from Ao Chalong Pier when the weather is good.
The pier sits just southeast of Phuket Town.
From Patong Beach, take Highway 4029 east.
