Sea, Sand & Sun on Thailand’s Rang Yai Island

The horseshoe shaped Rang Yai Island sits roughly five kilometers off Phuket’s East coastline, close to the larger Coconut Island. It’s a peaceful island with long stretches of white pearlescent sand along its western side. A shady tree lined interior offers natural shelter from the sun and is ideal for a gentle stroll.

Cruise Asia by Destination Asia Thailand operates their new shore excursion from mainland Phuket, starting with a short 30 minute transfer from the ship to a local pier where long tail boats wait. An enjoyable 20 minute long tail boat ride soon has guests on the island’s soft sand beach. Away from the crowds of Phuket, passengers can enjoy the tropical surroundings and relax at their own pace. Sunscreen, sunglasses and swimming gear is a must!
