Koh Yao consists of two main islands, Ko Yao Noi and Ko Yao Yai, and several surrounding islets. Most beaches of Koh Yao Noi are located on the west side of the island. If you come from Manoh pier, passing the District Administrative Office for around 7 kilometers, you will find Pa Sai Beach, which is a 400-meter-long beach.  From here you can watch the scenery of Koh Pak Bia, Koh Hong and sunrise very well. 

To the north of Pa Sai Beach are Klong Chak Beach and Tha Khao Beach which are stony beaches. In the north of the island, there is another beach called Ao Kian, which is a 50-meter-long curved beach with clear blue water, perfect for swimming. Please note that Ao Kian is accessible by boat only.

Here at Koh Yao Noi, tourists could experience the way of lives of Koh Yao Noi islanders who are mainly rice farmers or fishermen. 

The South of Thailand is the center of Thai fisheries where you can fetch some fresh fish or shrimps for dinner. The region also aims to encourage the idea of a healthy road where local people come to jog and play sports on local streets.

Moreover, from Koh Yao Noi, you can conveniently travel to other surrounding islands. Most tourists, after thoroughly explored the island, will continue to Koh Lao Bi Le or Koh Hong, which is the location of a ranger unit of Than Bokkoranee National Park. For those who want to see wonderful sandy beaches and coral reefs, do not miss visiting Koh Lao Hundu and Koh Pak Bia.

Ko Libong

Ko Libong is an island in Thailand, and also of a sub-district of Kantang District which includes Mu Ko Libong Archipelago and a small section of the shoreline near Kantang.

Ko Libong, Trang's largest island, is 30 minutes by long-tail boat from Hat Yao Ban Chao Mai Pier.[1] Less visited than neighbouring isles, Ko Libong is known for its flora and fauna as much as for its beaches. The island is home to a small Muslim fishing community and has a few resorts on its west coast beaches.

On the east coast of Ko Libong at Laem Ju Hoi is a large area of mangroves protected by the Botanical Department as the Libong Archipelago Wildlife Reserve. The sea channels here are one of the last habitats of the rare dugong, and around 40 of them graze on the sea grass that flourishes in the bay.
