Koh Khai Nok is located midway between Koh Sirey Island on Phuket’s east coast and Ko Yao Yai in Phang Nga Bay. This is a very small island, less than two-hundred meters on any side, which is about twelve kilometers from Phuket Island. Koh Khai Nok has about 900 meters of coastline and lovely beaches to walk or snorkel from.
Wildlife consists of birds of many species, rock lizards, monitors and thousands of fish close to shore. Snorkeling is fun and safe in the azure blue water and tanning is the perfect pastime on the white sand beaches of Koh Khai Nok. Bring your own snorkeling gear or arrange with your tour company to rent theirs when you book.
There are charges for everything on the island: it’s twenty Thai Baht to use the restroom and one-hundred Thai Baht to use the lounge chairs. Cocktails are served and they too are on the pricey side; but what do you expect at one of the nicest islands in the world? The island is a bit crowded after 10 am. but nothing like Maya Bay in Koh Phi Phi Islands.
There is lunch available on the island and all the boat tours include it in the trip. It is up to you where you eat. If you take a long tail boat out to Koh Khai Nok, you’ll want to eat at the beach side restaurant, although it may be crowded.
