AIDA 1 | Visited Islands

Koh Racha Yai, is the largest of the two islands located off the Southeastern coast of Phuket.
Different kinds of corals can be spotted here with the Staghorn coral predominating in many areas. Marine life is rich and species such as Barracuda, Tuna and Milk Fish can be found in this area.

The better place for diving is located on the East coast along the hard coral reef where there are shipwrecks and good drifts.

There are several interesting dive sites around Koh Racha Yai including Lucy’s ReefReef “Do little Do” where Stonefish and Batfish may be chanced upon. Not forgetting Marla’s mystery, a wreck that became home to Morays, Groupers and Lionfish.
