Only a short 15 minute long-tail boat ride away lies picturesque Koh Rang Yai (named after the plentiful Lang Fish surrounding the island). It is a sizeable 115 acre (275 rai) private, Muslim-family owned island with pristine beaches on its west coast as well as smaller coves accessible through many trails.

The island is easily accessible from the public boat pier in front of Baan Yamu where local boats will ferry you to the island and back.

The island’s west coast beach has pristine soft white sands and benefits from lack of crowds.

There is no entrance fee and all visitors are welcome as long as food and drinks are purchased through the 2 bars and restaurant open daily.

Foldable deck chairs are also made freely available for use although bikes to explore the island are on a rental basis.

Koh Rang Yai Island is also well known for its pearl farming operation and the family sells its wares within its Pearl Shop.

The smaller Koh Rang Noi island lies to the north but is privately owned and non-accessible to the public.

As Koh Rang Yai is a popular stop for boat tour operators going out or returning from excursions to islands further away, the beach clears of guests after 4pm for the remaining guests to enjoy sunset drinks or private dinners on the beach.
