Koh Yao Noi Tours

Koh Yao Noi
Koh Yao Noi is situated midway between Phuket and Krabi in Phang Nga Bay. It’s a diverse and scenic island, with mangrove forests lining its west coast and white-sand beaches fringing its eastern edges. Yao Noi is around half the size of neighboring Koh Yao Yai, but is nonetheless the more developed of the two. However, beyond the 7Eleven, high-end resorts, and guest houses, local life on Koh Yao Noi continues, with farming and fishing the main source of income for the island alongside tourism.

Yao Noi is a joy to simply ride around, either on a hired motorbike or via a tuk tuk. It has one main road that circles the southern half of the island, with smaller paved roads taking off in different directions, plus a few dirt tracks leading up to the north. Along the way, it’s all about taking in the scenery – the wooden houses on stilts, rubber plantations, rice paddies, and mangrove forests. Other activities available on the island include kayaking, hiking, snorkeling, and swimming.

Insider’s Tip: Along with Koh Yao Yai, the best time to visit Yao Noi is generally between November and April, when it’s dry and warm. Some places even close during the monsoon season from May to October.

Practical Info

It’s around a 30-minute speedboat trip from Phuket’s east coast to Koh Yao Noi. Long-tail boats also make daily trips to Yao Noi and Yao Yai. Those arriving from Phuket will land at Manoh Pier on the island’s southwest corner, while boats from Krabi arrive at Tha Khao Pier on its east coast.
