Naka Yai Island

Everything you Need to Know about Naka Yai Island

Naka Yai Island features only one small village on its west side, but in a very short space of time, the island is changing from a fishing village into a fairly exclusive resort location. Most of Naka Yai Island beaches are broad and sandy, and along its eastern shores the views out across Phang Nga Bay are simply breathtaking. The longest beach on the east side has chairs and umbrellas for rent, plus a small snack counter. It fills up in the afternoons with daytrippers.

There's not much to do on Naka Yai except swim, sunbathe and take strolls along the beach. It's recommended to bring your own food if you're planning to stay the day.

Naka Noi is known as the 'Pearl Island', as it's a site where rare South Sea pearls are cultivated. Any trip to Naka Noi will inevitably include a tour of the pearl farm - a good chance to see how these luminous beads are developed and extracted. The best way to enjoy such idylic island is to stay at The Naka Island, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa.

Getting to the Naka Islands

Naka Yai is also part of many daytrip itineraries, with many boatloads of snorkellers and swimmers stopping off at the long eastern beach for a few hours in the afternoon.
