Islands around Phuket

Phi Phi Island, Coral Island, Racha Islands

While there's plenty to see on Phuket, several smaller surrounding islands, each offering unique sights of their own, are easily accessible within an hour or two by boat. Many have excellent snorkeling and diving sites, while others simply offer nice patches of sand on which to spend a quiet day.

To reach them, hire a long-tail boat or charter an island-hopping tour. Accommodation is available on a number of the islands - some of it rustic, some very exclusive.
