Koh Yao Yai is a hidden jewel in Thailand’s Ko Yao archipelago. Unlike many of the country’s islands, Koh Yao Yai has retained its aura of an unspoilt paradise with virtually no traces of commercialization. Verdant rainforests, lush paddy fields, rubber plantations, provide a welcoming backdrop to this sleepy town, while gentle waves add a soothing soundtrack to the pristine, white sandy beach. Lauded for its eco-friendly homestay options, Koh Yao Yai houses only a few resorts and hotels. You can enjoy swimming, snorkelling and kayaking, and go hiking along beautiful winding forested paths. Kindly note that alcohol is only served inside the island’s resorts.

Highlights

  • Footprint-Free Sandy Beaches
  • Muslim Culture
  • Iconic Limestone Stacks
