An amazing island with beautiful views. We stayed at the racha and discovered that if you leave the resort and walk behind it, you will find a small road with some local restaurants, supermarket and bar.

I went here with Aussie Divers for day of diving. Water has loads of marine life inc Manta Rays. The island gets lots of day trips on the beach and snorkelling. It's about 1.5 hours on one of the dive boats.
